SILENCE CONDONES ABUSE

Someone said that all that is necessary for evil to prosper is for good people to do nothing.

What is it like to have someone who is bigger and stronger drawing close to you violating your space, intimidating you with their touch, their voice, their body, and depriving you of your privacy and your sense of self-worth? 
What is it like to have those who are supposed to be your advocates and protectors in society & church communities disbelieve you and partner with your abuser? What is it like to be provoked continuously in private, behind closed doors, in public with the aid of so-called helpers, and to wonder how long this must go on?
This story and this pattern are repeated far too often in our courts in our agencies public or private and religious communities…. and the innocent are hurt and injured in ways we can only imagine all because those in authority do not do and carry out with due diligence their care for the innocent who are not even allowed to have a voice until they turn of age.
I encourage you to go on to the “I cry for justice ” website and others like it and catch a glimpse of what is going on in our society and what is allowed in the name of justice and help.  Look for ways to do something.
Let us do something rather than nothing….

    This really hit home for me. Silence sometimes is easier than facing what happened, but in the long run silence hurts more than facing what happened. If I had known what silence could have done, I wouldn’t have remained silent!
