In addition to seeing this all over my fb, a person from my past commented on a friend of mines status. Me and my friend witnessed first hand a church breaking up before our eyes, friendships and spirits broken because of the actions of a sexual predator, and it not being dealt with by the church. This person commented something along the lines of "it would be easier to look for those that hadn't!." This person was the mother of the sexual predator who ruined lives. She had the balls to publicly post a comment on a status about sexual abuse and think her (probable) involvement had been forgotten or overlooked. Well, it hasn't been forgotten. Your son not only took the innocence of his victims but took the innocence of his victims friends and family who had to uproot their lives and be exposed to an evil you should have done something about way before hand. You're not solely to blame but you are the parent and you put children you claimed to love directly in danger. So you're absolutely right, there probably are more people posting #metoo
than not, think about how you could have prevented some of those "me too's", because you had the ability to preserve those people's innocence; but you chose to look the other way. Luckily those people have become more than a statistic. They have taken the power back from their abuser(s) survived the storm, and live happy lives today. This is one of their stories. Maybe one day I'll have the courage to share mine.
