MyNDTALK - Sister Hurting Sister - Nancy Gilgore

Each year, 19 million children are abused by their siblings and well over 40 million adults have suffered this type of abuse. When Nancy was nine years old, her eleven-year-old sister led her into the scorching midday sun, tied her to a chair, and taped her eyelids to her eyebrows with electrical tape, leaving Nancy helpless for hours to stare into a blinding blue sky. Each time Nancy walked into her own bedroom she would have to repeat self-deprecating passwords: "I am ugly and stupid." "I am ugly, stupid, and no one loves me." "Please may I come in?" Girl in the Water details the most shuttering examples of sibling abuse, the untold secret in millions of homes.
