I wanted to take a minute to address some things on my mind…
Obviously, as the President/Founder of SpeakingOut against Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. (aka SpeakingOut), the sexual abuse or any form of abuse or neglect of children brings tears to my eyes. HEARTBREAKING…that anyone would harm a child. Therefore, at SpeakingOut, we will continue fighting against the crime of child sexual abuse, the perpetrators of this horrific crime against the most innocent of us all; children, as well as continue with our current campaign of addressing the breakdowns/failures of “The System; one that should protect children. Prayers for all the Children of the World.
Also on my mind & heart is George Floyd’s family. I truly tear up anytime I see even just a picture of that horrible scene that led to his death. It hits me hard. First thing that comes to my mind is if that had been one of my Sons. As a Mother of two grown Sons & and the Grandmother of five Grandchildren, I cannot fathom what his family is feeling; what they’re going through. To die that way…HEARTBREAKING. Prayers for George Floyd’s family.
Let’s keep fighting against the injustices in this world; peacefully, but relentlessly. Whatever the injustice, BE A VOICE!
