How many young people/children have I run into that have been abused? Too many. Yet another has been abused by her father. A little guy who’s parents are the state. A toddler neglected by addicted parents. A young man trying to find out who he is years after his dad hurt him. I’ve usually seen that they are ashamed of what happend or is happening to them. As if it is their fault. I believe that if they could speak up, the abuse would either stop or be dampened. I wish I would have said something. Now I’m mad at myself. If you’ve been hurt or are being hurt, say something. It’s not your fault.
