Kids, get lost.
Who listens to them?
Let me ask you... Have you got five minutes?
Can you spot me just one video (with no audio)?
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and I understand that people of all ages are victims of sexual assault.
I can’t speak for everyone.
I can speak out for the kids who’ve been victims of sexual abuse.
One of the kids is now a young – brave – man called David.
Here is David’s story:
The nineteen-year-old tells us – literally – in his own words what’s happened to his life since he was first molested at the age of ten.
Ten-year-old boys are supposed to be climbing trees, playing video games, honing baseball skills and enjoying the last couple of innocence-covered years.
|See no hope?|
They are not supposed to be molested by two “friends.”
Watch David’s eyes – look into these weary, sad eyes.
Did you see his cracked, broken smile?
That smile is way too old to belong to a teenager…
This. Crap. Needs. To. End.
Why not start today?
Pass David’s story on.
Every parent should watch and learn to look for the warning signs.
Pass it on to the friend you’re worried about, the colleague who’s missed a few days, or the kid at school who doesn’t laugh anymore?
Watch and please share the video.
Forward it on Facebook.
Email it.Share it.
Some of you might dismiss this because you don’t know David, so why should you care?
You know me, at least a little, right?
I don’t know David, but teenage victims of sexual abuse are around us.
Don't miss the signs should someone ever reach out to you.
I know I try not to, because my wife and I have three sons.
What sort of world are we leaving them - and their peers?
