No child should be abused . A child molestor is a "demon".
Look at Margarita Walter's letter "about the arrest of my child's father, John Walter for child molestattion" dated 3/18/2013 on www.leukemiascandal.com
Look at the Penn State Sandusky scandal.
How many more children need to get hurt unitl we do something?

As a survivor of 11 years of physical and mental child abuse which nearly cost me my life (by a hoarder nonetheless), I believe there is nothing worse than doing harm to a child, who is too young to fully understand the world around them.The people who perpetrate these sorts of crimes rely on the silence of their victims - A child who is too naive, frightened, or ashamed to talk about what is being done to them.We are as a society, allowing the monsters who destroy the minds and lives of...

As a survivor of 11 years of physical and mental child abuse which nearly cost me my life (by a hoarder nonetheless), I believe there is nothing worse than doing harm to a child, who is too young to fully understand the world around them.The people who perpetrate these sorts of crimes rely on the silence of their victims - A child who is too naive, frightened, or ashamed to talk about what is being done to them.We are as a society, allowing the monsters who destroy the minds and lives of the most VULNERABLE of our beings, to pay a miniscule price for the magnanimus wreckage they caused. This needs to be talked about and fought...we need to fight for those who are not OLD ENOUGH to fight for themselves.Children are ultimately defenseless. And where I've gained a tiny bit back with yesterdays passing of NY's Jay-J's Law, my faith in humanity will remain on vacation with my leprachaun and my unicorn until the day this issue becomes considered a crime met with the severity it deserves.

I work with children with special needs. They need be treated with love. I am there to guide, support and to help them be successful in everything they do. I have been working with them for 25 years and feel blessed by these children!
Without support they might not be able to succeed in life. I have four grandchildren that need to grow up knowingknowing that they count in this world and are loved. This is why this cause is important to me.

We buried my friends 4yr old grandson Saturday.He was beat to death by his father or so called father.Don't understand what a 4yr old could do to make you that mad, there isn't anything a kid could do to ever make me do that.He was autistic too, my grandson is 13 and autistic never spoke at all.I would hurt someone for doing this to one of mine...I really want to hurt this guy.....

So agree but when the system is corrupt or severely broken it takes a strong person to get just one person who has the authority and guts to stand up for these children.

Until they are traumatized for life our. or lost from there family sometimes forever. I knew a lil baby 2 years old his mother and her boyfriend beat him to death. So , So , sad....AND they walking our same streets today. THIS IS MY WAY TO GET THIS IN TOO.

Children are 'the apple of my eye'; love them and they love another tomorrow; nurture the nature of goodness, compassion, caring and sharing and the world will have Leaders who honor the citizens of the land. Children learn what they live....let us be positive role models......show the sample of right living......BE what you want to see. SHALOM!

I was abused. And so were others that I love dearly. The effects of abuse are hard to overcome.No child should ever be harmed, the world is difficult enough when we face harsh realities and stressful respinsibilities as adults.All children should be able to feel loved and safe, and be
able to laugh each and every day.

Thank God my Grandparents were there to save me and become a loving safe haven, and my Uncle looked out for me as a brother.

</3 my son was taken from me by an abusive man who hurt me for several years... when I fought back he put a restraining order against me and took my son to hurt me...... used my baby as a pawn and then beat him when I didn't do what he had wanted.. children should NEVER EVER be hurt by anyone who is supposed to love and care for them... they are an innocence given by god to remind us of the simple loving pleasures in life love family security <3 they are our future and they must be protected at all costs.
