Child Abuse Laws
By Terri Haught-Sirbaugh
April 04, 2006
I completely agree that the laws
all over the United States are flawed for sex offenders. When
I was a youth I lived in Ketchikan and was a victim of sexual
abuse. I was not taught about sexual abuse in the schools. However
when I came out and told what was happening, everyone acted like
sex abuse couldn't happen in Ketchikan. I thank God every day
that my mother believed me and we left Ketchikan. However everyone
treated the offender like he had done nothing wrong. I sure hope
that things are not like that still in Ketchikan. I think sexual
abuse awareness should be introduced to children at a young age.
(Child molesters don't care about age).
I have to admit thought I do
miss Ketchikan, it is a beatiful town.
