vigil reminder

protectyourchildren2 copy (Large)Please come out on Tuesday, 30th June for the Solemn Ceremony in Rawson  Square to recognize the ongoing fight against child abuse, particularly child sexual abuse. Remember, molesters are most often people you know and who have regular access to your children. They can groom your children to believe that their behaviour is normal and just part of a loving relationship. They may threaten your children not to tell anyone. They may give your children gifts or money in order to gain their admiration, love and trust. If you see any signs in your children that may suggest they have been abused, please look into it…don’t ignore the signs hoping they will go away.  If in doubt, call the Crisis Centre who will advise you what to do and how to proceed.

Meanwhile come out and support us on Tuesday. We need to make our voices heard  that the laws in place are strictly adhered to. We also need to lobby for amendments to the law to ensure the safety of our Nation’s children, now and in the future.

And if you were abused and never were able to talk to someone about it, call the Crisis Centre and make an appointment to come in and speak to a counsellor. The affects of abuse can last a lifetime but it is never too late to seek help. If you check our website, you will see a page which gives information on adults who were abused as children.

See you in Rawson Square!

    I wanted so much to be there, I sent my heart and my good spells, I am so grateful for the unrelenting voice of the Crisis Center in our community.
