Let's face it. Most people are never going to be able to do something big and dramatic to help an abused child, and most of us will never take a huge, dramatic role in changing a law, starting a not-for-profit, rescuing a child, or anything worthy of a Oxygen-network made-for-TV movie. And that's OK. There's lot and lots that we can do to help end child sexual abuse, and non-sexual abuse for that matter. Things like learning the facts, voting, and empowering survivors make a huge difference, it's just that boundless change is harder for us to percieve. It's also bigger and, at the end of the day, more important.

If you want to learn almost everything there is to know about child sexual abuse, go to www.darkness2light.org, the best organization out there in terms of CSA education.

To learn from survivors, and support them a little financially, two excellent sites are

http://store.survivingspirit.com/webstore/     and

http://www.healingthroughcreativity.org/

Here's a link to purchase the Stop Child Molestation Now book. If every American citizen read this, this nation would be an unrecognizably better place in ten years.

Here's another book that discusses how to keep your kids safe from sexual abuse, how the abuse works, and is really entertaining if you're into the CSI/SVU genre of TV shows

The answers are out there. We need to recognize them when we see them, and follow them where they take us. These sites will get us going on our collective journey.
