I am very glad to see this report on local TV. The only way we can stop the abuse of children is by educating the every community members on the serious long term effects that child abuse has on kids as they go through their teen years, and into adulthood. The silence and denial of this horrible epidemic can begin to end when advocates bring it to light, by speaking up in our schools, churches, villages, community centers and creating the right support for victims and their caregivers.
