If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’ Zech 13 v 6

Stop the silence!

What can tear away at family values, purity,innocence,community more than a pedophile or the people that keep their secrets? Will you speak out on this subject? Will you take a stand even if it costs you financially or socially? It is going to take way more than my blog to make a difference in the area of childhood sexual abuse. I know drug addiction and alcoholism are also very devastating to families and community but I strongly suspect that sexual abuse is what drives many, many individuals to seek relief from their internal struggle from their abuse by turning to drugs or alcohol.

I know that there will always be pedophiles on this earth but I do believe we can drastically reduce their access to children. The easiest way is to stop being silent! Inform others of known predators in your area. Write your elected leaders asking them to make stricter guidelines for released predators, longer jail sentences for sexual predators, mandatory sexual psycho evaluation for someone accused of a sexual crime (plea agreements only allowed after the lie-detector part of the evaluation implies the offender has been truthful.)Ask your leaders to explain why someone that abuses an animal routinely receives harsher punishments than a sexual predator.There are so many changes that need to be made in our laws that pertain to this subject!The laws won't change unless we the people demand a change.

Remember,you ALWAYS need to report suspected sexual abuse!
