I would like to quickly show you on to a very enlightening post on the Larry King Live blog. It was written by Anne Lee, President & CEO of Darkness to Light, an organization which educates adults on how to prevent, recognize and respond to sexual violence against children. Her blog post succinctly tells the why and how of preventing and reducing violence.
- "As a nation of taxpayers we spend over $35B annually for the long term cost of child sexual abuse."
- "Unlike other issues and diseases where we need to raise hundreds of millions and billions of of dollars to go into a laboratory and one day find a cure--the cure, the end of sexual abuse is right in front of us."
Read about the cure. We can prevent needless human suffering.
(And cut our national health care costs as well)
