It's a sad, astounding statistic. One in five girls and one in 20 boys is a victim of child sexual abuse.
Kenneth Vincent, of Vidor, was abused as a child and he never spoke out about being abused until he was an adult.
Now, he's helping other victims find their voice through a new book he's written titled "Wounded Year."
The words are real. It's his story. It's his past. The book tells real life situations that forever changed his life.
"He introduced me to hard core porn when I was 11-years-old and just began to condition me to accept certain things about what's appropriate as far as sexual behavior," Vincent said.
Vincent kept it a secret for decades until he visited a family counselor a few years back.
"He began to lay out to me how that conditions the brain and how it creates a dysfunctional attitude that can can be carried out into future relationships," he said.
It's a fictionalized account of what happened to Vincent. In the book, you'll see this saying "Wounds, they heal. But, the scars, well, they tell the story." Vincent says wounds turn to scars and scars tell stories.
"They're reminders. I'll never forget that I was abused as a child," he said.
As for the man who sexual abused Vincent, he was later charged with two counts of Sexual Assault of a Minor and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
