A Blast From the Past

I was running around like children do. I had to be around 4 years old. We were at my grandmother’s house in DC and I was outside playing with children. I remember going inside of this house with a child and there was a baby in the crib. The baby was being changed and curiosity got the best of me so I was watching as a child would do. All of a sudden out of nowhere, this older guy…everybody looked grown up to me. This older guy grabs me and say, “You want to see the baby?” He takes my head and tries to force my face onto the baby’s male genitals. I struggled and finally broke free. I ran from the house, scared out of my mind. I could still hear him laughing as I ran away. Why would someone do that to a child and a baby?  I was just a child. Innocent!

Being 56 is wonderful. I have so many new and jumbled insights on life.
