Get the word out. And in support of Summer Solstice Girl, I’m tossing down a poem I did a while back for a “House of Ruth” Fundraiser.
So do I.
Sexual abuse is a horrible thing AT ANY age. But when it’s done to children, I find it particularly despicable.
As an MD in my native country, I saw many cases of child sexual abuse. I used to work at a third level hospital and what I saw broke my heart. Some children even needed extensive reconstructive surgery. I vowed to some day do something about it. And while I know that support for victims and their families is extremely valuable, I’m more interested in prevention.
The opportunity finally came in September 2010 when I saw a tweet from @VoiceFound on the #Ottawa feed inviting people to attend a workshop on Childhood Sexual Abuse Prevention!
I did a little research, concluded the thing was legit, and signed up for the workshop.
