  •  Thank you entlord for those links. I have decided (5+ / 0-)

    that regardless of how "hard" it is - we must look at child sexual abuse and cover up in all of its ugliness.  To do otherwise is to allow it to continue.

    The only way we can fight for future children is to stand up today and say no more.

    We must shine the brightest light on every incident regardless of how unpleasant it is.  Our brief discomfort in reading someone's story pales in comparison to the lifetime of suffering these little children experience.

    Unfortunately, I am one of millions who speak from experience.  

    So it is in their honor that I will read each and every word and it is for little ones today that I will fight with every ounce of strength I have to continue bringing these stories to the forefront of our consciousness.  

    To do otherwise results in failure - for if we turn our back on these unpleasantries, we turn our back on the innocent children who depend on us.
