Three people got it together with one goal in mind, helping others to recover from abuse. Sadly this is a real problem out there for so many people; the abuse may differ, but the horrendous fallout is always so shocking. Some of our kids live daily with fear dread and terror. How can we help? We can raise the level of awareness, so that falling through the system is no longer an issue. These kids live on the streets from such a very young age, running from their abusers to escape an intolerable situation. Within my own situation, it seems to fall away into the background, and I am humbled and appalled. This will follow them always. Personally I intend to work with whomever necessary; to change the horror story that has been their life. There is a need for somewhere to run and a safe ear. This will be a difficult task for them while trying to adjust. For so very long the only person they have been able to trust, is the person looking back at them each morning in the mirror. Sitting here in front of my computer the words running through my mind are that we have to try, but no, we need to do far more than that; we need to make it happen.
