National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse -NAASCA.ORG
I think that at some point in all our lives we all know of or hear of somebody who has suffered some form of abuse,either as a child or an adult .Abuse isnt always sexual it comes in many forms from sexual,physical,mental,emotional,financial, and these are the ones that most would relate to but only part of the list.However despite the fact that we all know how wrong and horrific abuse is many stay quiet and do nothing until prehaps it is too late for that victim.
In our world today we all have to stand up and start to make our voices heard so that we can at least hold our heads high in the knowledge that at least we tried to help somebody escape the pain and suffering that abuse causes.Abuse as a child does not go away as that child develops into an adolescent or an adult,many suffer for life and some suffer in silence as nobody has asked or prehaps they are men who feel that they cant ask for help due to humiliation or stigmas
Therfor I am asking all that read this blog today to prehaps keep a closer eye on those around you maybe its the children that are friends with your kids,or neighbours,family or it could even be a stranger but if you think that somebody needs help then isnt it better that you act and they dont need the help than to not act and to realise that you could actually have saved another person wether adult or child from pain
Check out the website @ WWW.NAASCA.ORG and dont use the old ideas of ignorance to others plight as the reason as to why you ignore somebody that you could help.If we can make our voices heard then imagine the help that we could offer to all victims of abuse if you all joined in and helped to be the voice for those that right now dont have the strength to ask for our help
