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.....

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.

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.

Because children don't ask to be here kids need to be protected

Too many kids are taught to NOT express their hurt and be tough...I feel this suppresses their emotions and causes them to fill their voids with drugs,alcohol, sex, promiscuity, etc. that causes more damage in the long run. They are not able to communicate their real and vulnerable feelings. I feel God should be put first in their lives and taught that it's ok to cry or hurt and not to be punished and act like an adult as a child.

My fear is the system will let these so called parents at some point have contact both parents are abusive they had a 3rd child my boy's full brother who was taken at 5 months.. He had to wear a helmet for almost a year because they left him in his carseat constantly!! I

Les enfants ne sont ni nos jouets, ni nos boucliers ! Ils sont notre futur et ont tous droit à avoir une véritable enfance insouciante et heureuse, pour qu'ils soient des adultes responsables et matures demain !
