Really, if 7th Heaven's Rev. Eric Camden can be a child molester, is nothing sacred?  Well, no. Not when it comes to the abuse of children.

In light of the recent allegations and investigations into actor Stephen Collins (TV's Rev. Camden) for molesting children, it's time to take another look at just who molesters are, how they operate, hot to recognize them, and how to help kids be safe.  We also need to reexamine what we can do about this terrible problem.  Did you know a 2004 U.S. Department of Education report said nearly 10 % of students have sexual contact with school employees before they graduate?  That report also stated that abuse happens when no one is paying attention to the issue.

So let's pay attention.

Storm is a writer and poet.  She is a survivor and advocate for child abuse victims and has turned that into a personal campaign to speak out against the unspeakable.  She wants to help children get out of abusive situations by personally speaking about what she's been through.

Daphne Young, Vice President of Communications and PreventionEducation for Childhelp can halp us figure it all out.  Childhelp is America's longest running and largets national nonprofit meeting the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused and neglected children.  The organization focuses on advocacy, prevention, treatment, and community outreach. She has developed a youth safety curriculum for young athletes with Olympic Consultants, the Foundation for Glogal Sports Development called Childhelp: Speak Up, Be Safe for Athletes.

Storm and Daphne will give us answers, explain what child molestation really is, and offer strategies and resources for all of us.
