Michael Reagan became very emotional tonight as he shared how he had been victimized at a very young age by a sexual abuser. It led him through a life of deep pain and confusion as he told of how at age 16 he paid prostitutes to help him prove to himself that he was heterosexual. And because of the abuse he said it wasn’t until 1991 that he was able to tell his father that he loved him.
I have a deep respect for Michael Reagan and very much appreciate his willingness to share his story. I hope that his honesty and vulnerability will help children who are currently suffering under the same abusive circumstances.
