Please Offer Words of Support to Victims of Abuse at the Hands of Sandusky
Dear Websleuths Members,
We are posting this thread all over Websleuths.
It is important for victims of sexual abuse to know they are supported by people from all over the world.
I would like you to post your thoughts of love and support here for the victims of Jerry Sandusky and California Catholic Priest Father Michael Kelly .
To Sandusky's Victims and Father Kelly's victims,
If you have come forward then I know you are starting the long road to healing. We will stand with you in spirit as you bring down these monsters who stole a part of your childhood.
If you have yet to come forward please know that even though it is scary and difficult you will find that people from all over the world will be there with you, will support you, applaud you, and help you. Don't be afraid. You are the one with all the power now.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN ABUSED BY EITHER OF THESE MEN OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO HAS THEN PLEASE EMAIL SANDUSKYVICTIMS@WEBSLEUTHS.COM

It cant have been easy. Not to testify, not to admit what happened and not have tried to process it and get on with your life.
You are more than those terrible moments of being assaulted. Your life means more and you can be bigger than it. It isnt your fault, and whatever you think you traded or said or did, you were a child and he was a predator.
Take something back, because everyone is going to believe you now even if they didnt then. I am pulling for you and I admire you and all of your courage.email me

To the Survivors,
you are loved and respected by more people than you will ever know. I hope you know, with all your hearts and all your minds that you did not deserve any of this. Nothing, not one thing, that man did , was your fault. Live a good life. Fill your home with love and laughter- because that is what you do deserve.

To All Victims of Sexual Abuse:
Please know that I admire you for your courage in coming forward and testifying against those who harmed you. One way sex offenders control their victims is by making them feel ashamed and afraid to speak out. You have no need to be ashamed; the one who exploited you is the one who should be ashamed. You no longer have anything to fear. By coming forward and testifying against those who abused you, you have broken free of their control, shown support for others who suffered, and prevented potential victims from suffering in the future.
Now you can look proudly into the future knowing that you are viewed as heroes to many. I hope that others who are now suffering abuse or may at some time in the future will be inspired by the courage you have shown and will not be afraid to break free of the control of their abusers."Some circumstantial evidence is very strong, as when you find a trout in the milk."

To the Victims,
My heart breaks for you and for the childhood you lost at the hands of a monster. But, you had the bravery to speak out about it. You are keeping other kids from the same fate as you. I hope that fact gives you some peace.http://unsolvedmurdertx.blogspot.com/
The key is often reading/listening clearly to the details with logic and not emotion.

I am so very sorry for the suffering that you have gone through. You will all remain in my prayers forever. We all care about you and wish you the very best that life offers. God Bless You.

Forgive me if I do not address you as victims, but as survivors.
I applaud your courage, for it took courage to face each day back then. Please don't let this event define who you are, refuse to be victims and forge your own pathways in your life.
You have probably prevented many others from becoming victims to this evil, you have rescued many, that makes you heroes not victims.
Hugs and well wishes headed your way.

My heart goes out to you and my prayers are with you.
What you have endured should not happen to anyone. Don't let this man steal anything else from you. You are not defined by what this monster did.
Your best revenge is to live a happy, healthy, productive life. Live well. Love deeply.

We all have a story to tell, some tell it outloud and others tell it privately, but what we all need to do is to tell someone. What happens to you does not define who you are, only you can decide what kind of person you want to be. My prayers are with you through this difficult time. Hold your heads high...I have and the world looks a whole lot better than when you face you head down."The opinion prevailed among advanced minds that it was time that belief should be replaced increasingly by knowledge; belief that did not itself rest on knowledge was superstition, and as such had to be opposed." - Albert Einstein

To the victims who have come forward and those who haven't - these are appalling crimes because advantage has been taken of vulnerablility by those who we should be able to trust, but at the end of the day the flesh is the flesh and cares not - the spirit is the spirit and yours is not unclean while their's is foul - get on with your lives remembering you are not a perpetrator of the removal of the free will of any human being: the one act indefensible and unforgivable by God and all humanity. God bless you, be strong and big love and hugs to those of you who have come out fighting and spoken up against these foul and weak minded monsters. xx Never let scum be responsible for robbing you of your life of your spirit of your soul; it is your life - take it, own it - live it. xx

To the survivors,
Your courageous actions in coming forward and speaking the truth are an inspiration. I cannot imagine the personal cost involved in pursuing justice and revealing your pain to the world. Your stories have brought revolutionary awareness and critical understanding to how predators work, as well as shining the light of truth on the fact that predators can be found anywhere.
On behalf of my young sons, I want to thank you for advancing the cause of children's rights, especially the right to be protected and believed. Praying for your peace.

Please know that I am sending up a prayer for all of you who have suffered. It's so hard to understand how people can be so cruel and twisted to offend like this. But please never stop believing that there are people who care about you, and are praying for you. I am one of them. God Bless You, and God Heal You. - Love, Roses
