At times we seem to take on the weight of the world. We worry about what we can't control and carry burdens that are not our own...
What burdens do you carry that belong to others?

The Silent Cries of a Black Girl is an honest, brave, well-written guide for parents and caretakers—one that helps them gain awareness about the awful secret that burdens many children who are victims of sexual abuse. In it, Siah covers what to look for and how to open the lines of communication with children. It is a book of resilience, hope, and a map for healing not only the child, but the entire family. I highly recommend that every family read The Silent Cries of Black Girl for its message and sensitivity to culture, race, religion, and family loyalties.
