with it and offered advice Read on DEAR ABBY Your advice fell a little short She is worried that Sam might start stalking her Ive got news for you He already is California stalking laws are very specific and Sams activities would definitely qualify as such Sam is 34 and trying to start a relationship with a 15yearold Last time I checked that was illegal consensual or not Being drunk is no

ABBY Im 32 but when I was 15 a friend of my brothers who is 10 years older than me started making passes at me This went on for about two months It ended with my being raped The emotional scars I have dealt with the physical scars I cover up Abby Quaking in California has reason to be afraid Sam is stalking her and if her parents wont listen she should take copies of the notes from her fathers friend to the police IN FRESNO CALIF DEAR ABBY I knew I had to write when I read the letter from That was me 20 years ago I spent several years of my life afraid to attend any family gatherings If I went I would be afraid even to go to the bathroom for fear Uncle Pete would follow me My parents thought I was an overimaginative child too young to know what was going on Well one night Uncle Pete passed out on our couch and I woke up to find him all over me He ripped off my clothes and I thought he was going to rape me I managed to push him off me and scream Uncle Pete ran out of the house and I never saw him again My dad made sure of it Abby too many parents think their children are too young to know what sexual harassment is but theyre not Children know the feelings of shame and fear when someone makes sexual moves on them even if they dont know what to call those feelings But there is a name for it sexual abuse of children Her instincts should be applauded but she needs help fast Most rapes are committed by a family friend or member not by an unknown Parents must teach their children not to succumb to the child predator 1 go to your counselor or teachers or the police If you cant do that find an adult you can trust maybe the mother of a friend If you came to me I would help and there are many other good people who would too Good luck and may the Lord keep you safe SURVIVOR IN
