  •  The best thing that can come from this case (18+ / 0-)

    is the education of the American public about CSA.  I'm not sure justice is ever done in situations such as this.  The victims have a life sentence, no matter the verdict.  

    I want parents and guardians to believe their kids when they are told something bad is happening.  I realize sometimes kids will report things that didn't actually happen, but they should at least be investigated.  I want parents to know the signs of abuse.  I also want them to know that not every kid shows the signs.  I didn't show the signs until years later.  

    I want victims to know that the ways they've "acted out" are entirely normal.  I really didn't know it was normal until someone told me.  I might write a diary about my experience, but I may not.  It isn't easy to even admit it happened, so I can't imagine really writing about it in detail.

      ... is write about it to people who you trust, who are willing to agree in advance, to absolute confidentiality and to respecting your feelings & wishes about what happened.  

      You have a bunch of friends around here who would volunteer to be private sounding-boards.  I'll volunteer to be on that list too.  

      Being able to share stuff privately and in confidence, may be helpful on its own, and it may also help clarify whether you want to share it publicly.

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
