I work with children who have been abused. They were targets because they have mental illnesses. One child, age 11, came forward and helped convict a faculty worker for sexually abusing her for 6 months. I am angry that people take advantage or prey on our children. When a child is brave enough to come forward and have the support to help them tell their story, healing begins. In my eyes, this is a child who has an opportunity to “Live a Happy, Healthy, & Rewarding Life Style.
