Sisters are our very first friends. They are our best friends, mentors and basically, the best blessing that God could bestow upon us. Even though we have unreasonable fights with them, get angry at them for complaining about us to our mothers or beat each other blue while fighting for the television remote, they are the very ones who will stand up for us when we need somebody and always provide us with a shoulder to cry on. Below is a list of 5 such times that prove just how much a sister would do for you without a single complaint (or maybe a few):
When 9-year-old Debbie walked into her house to see her neighbour sexually assaulting her younger sister, she made the ultimate sacrifice. Her attacker convinced Debbie that nobody would believe her if she went to the police and because she had an alcoholic father and her fear of being placed in a foster home, Debbie took her sister’s place as her assaulter asked her to. Debbie was sexually assaulted from the age of 9 to 12 when her family finally moved away. It took Debbie many years to tell her story and get her assaulter punished. Finally, in 2013, Debbie’s assaulter who was now 64 years of age was sentenced to 12 years in prison and placed on the sex offenders’ register.
