I was abused growing up for 4 years(3rd grade thru 6th). No one helped me & no one believed me. Emotional, physical,& sexual. 3rd grade thru 6th grade was sexual abuse:No one should have to deal with that. Then end up feeling they are worth nothing because of what happened like I did. Amanda Delp, I couldn't agree with you more.

Anna, I am so sad to hear of what you went through.... I was physically & emotionally abused by my father. You must 'forgive' the person who abused you... for you to ever be able to move forward. It takes a long time. I pray that you are in a good place now. God bless you!

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.

One abused child is one too many.

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.

no one should go through and ordeal like that but things happen to people,i to have been abused as a child you can never forget what happen ,but you can push past it so that you can live the way GOD want us to.

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.
