    I can't imagine knowing that something this sinister is being done to a child and keeping silent to save one's job, marriage, community status, or reputation.

    I have a good friend who underwent some sort of trauma - my belief is that it was child sexual abuse - and chose not to talk about it, even with people to whom he was close. He is serving a lifelong sentence for a crime that someone else committed.

    Incremental change frightens excremental minds.

      I so want to reach people like your friend. It can be a terrible road, but I tell my group members, ... the men who do this work pretty much all say it is SO worth it.

      You can't believe how much better life can get. You don't need to be alone. Or heal alone. There are thousands of brothers who will support you in your struggle. All of it, ... it's not his fault.

      Let me know if I can help. The 1in6.org site is a good start. Or malesurvivor.org. If he likes the on-line world.
