For the Abused

Stopping Abuse

I wrote this piece about a decade ago, and posted it online last year in tribute to the courageous victims of Coach Jerry Sandusky who spoke out and helped protect future victims.

But some of it applies to children who survive traumas of any kind–and I post it with a heart that is still breaking for those children who witnessed their classmates being gunned down in Sandy Hook Elementary.

The tragedy fuels me forward in my work with determination and hope that we can find a way in coming days to crack the code on how to do much more to protect the children of the world from these types of dangers and traumas.

And how we can do much more to stop the abuse, and in particular the sexual abuse, of children in their safest of places.
