:kickass::smile::wink: Child Abuse Trauma Survivors (CATS) Speak Out! We must try to get the strength and courage to tell our stories. If we fail to, what parent, police officer, judge, social worker, neighbor, district attorney, friend, etc., is going to believe there is so much horrible and sometimes sadistic abuse is a reality. It's hard. But only us adults can show the tremendous amount, who the abuser was, how they made you hide it, and why we keep silent. That's because we are not supposed to talk about sex. What adult, much less a child, would step up to speak about the sex they had last night. Child abuse is commited mostly by males. We have come some of the way, but we are still stigmatized and made to believe we should be ashamed. So far, the abusers have the upper hand. We must come out together so the world there is so much of it. Our silence will not save us or the next child.
