Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams Discusses Family History of Abuse

Ireland's Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, in an interview in which he urges his brother to come forward to face charges of sexually abusing his own daughter, reveals the history of sexual and other abuse in his extended family.

If you watch the video which accompanies the linked article, you see the heavy-heartedness in Adams. But you can also sense that he truly feels that dealing with this horror is the right thing for his entire family.

Dealing with the ravages and the multiple impacts of evil isn't easy. But it is cleansing and ultimately, freeing.

Hopefully, other families that have been touched by abuse will emulate the Adams' response in these matters and also seek help, counseling, and justice.
