“Like you, I was molested when I was a kid.”

   From The Movie, "If I Could"

Tracy: Like you, I was molested when I was a kid.

James: I never knew that.

TTracy: I was molested by your grandpa. That's something I didn't really truly figure out for a really long time.

Tracy: He told me, you know, "We need money. If we don't get money, we don't do this and we don't do that. Your caseworker is going to come over here and take you away. So, in order to get money, you need to sleep with this one and you need to sleep with that one and then everything will be okay."

"I was afraid. You know, I was afraid of the men, you know, they would come in and, you know, your grandpa would leave and he would leave me with these men. I was just a little kid, I didn't know what to do. I felt like I didn't have a choice, I felt like I could not escape. I didn't want to get sent back to wherever it was that I was going to be sent to."
