Here is another excerpt from my book “Father Figure – My Mission to prevent child sexual abuse”:

The biggest reason why most ordinary citizens do not wish to become involved, even when they know it’s the right thing to do, is because they often do not understand who to report to, how they will be involved, what will happen if they do, and/or they understandably do not wish to suffer all the possible distress and repercussions. It is my foremost hope that Father Figure serves as a heartfelt, inspiring motivation for everyone reading it to also be willing to go to some or similar lengths for vulnerable children in your respective communities.

What happened in this true story CAN and DOES happen more frequently than people realize, and more frequently than any of us would further wish to acknowledge. In this day and age, with technology such as iPhones, the Internet, and Facebook, it is easier than before to take precautions and advocate safety on behalf of the children who we feel are at risk. I implore and challenge everyone reading this to take a moment today to reexamine whether there is a vulnerable child in your community who could possibly benefit from your help and involvement. If so, please find the courage and creativity to try and assist that child, of course with proper attention to the legal system and the laws of our society.

As a society, our children are our most valuable resources and are quite literally our future. Each one deserves the right to grow up feeling safe and respected, and to grow up in an environment free of all forms of abuse. As the adults, it is our responsibility and obligation to give each precious child that full opportunity. To all ordinary citizens reading this, I hope you will learn from this story.
