Are we waking up...???

I'm sure most of you have heard about the recent case of sexual abuse with a teacher from "Torah Tamima" Yehuda Kolko who sexually abused his students.

When I read this article I most admit it made my blood boil, It seems that no matter how much work I have done to over come my anger and resentments against those who sexually abused me, it always comes back to me when I hear/read stories like this, I'm sure many of you who have been through similar experiences can relate to this feelings.

I personally want to acknowledge David Framowitz
for going after Yehuda Kolko, I applaud you for that, including all those people who are working on this case, I admire all people who speak up and seek justice for harm done.

I can only imagine what it most feel like to go against abusers, to face it and deal with a traumatic experience,
I wish that many more people get justice, maybe this case being publicized will bring more people to come forward.

God only knows how many innocent kids are/where being sexually abused by people like kolko, sadly so many never get prosecuted for there crimes.

I don't think you can ever erase the past, it always stays in your memories, but I do believe healing is possible, it takes work to over come such horrible experiences, to find inner peace inside.

I have more to say about the issue of sexual abuse, but for now I will end here.
