You may not be able to stay anonymous, depending on where you live and depending on the statute of limitations applicable where the abuses took place. You've been too cryptic to be able to offer any concrete information. The most recent cases of historical sexual child abuse at Syracuse and Penn State in the USA clearly reveal the challenges faced in different states in the USA. If you're in Canada, there is no statute of limitations. If you're in another country, the laws may be completely different. If you're talking about an institution that still exists, children may well be in danger even today, which in turn would change how you would go about this. The point is, you've made a decision to make a difference, so you must be willing to go the distance. Contact the authorities and ask the questions that need to be asked, and then follow your heart in love rather than acting out of fear. Thank you for starting the process by sharing here with my visitors and me. It's now time to take the next step. Perhaps you can instigate and initiate change with regard to a statute of limitations, but you can't do anything to bring about change until you speak out first.

To stop the abuse of the little victims
by: Anonymous

I was abused physically and mentally by both parents completely all my young life until I was able to get away. I hate child abuse. Children need to learn about child abuse when they start school from day one and how to report it to stop it from ever getting started. There needs to be dialog by care givers and educators now on how to accomplish this task before, not after it happens, its to late then. All I have heard for 65 years of my 78 years on earth is just talk. We need to fight back and demand the responsible leaders to do something now. People should not have children they don't love and want. A serious effort needs to be made and started to educate the people who produce children, either on purpose or by accident of the monumental responsibility, bringing a child into the world is and how best to provide the desired environment for that child. The abused cant do the job alone and talking about your having been abused carries no authority. In fact in many cases your pushed aside because your tainted material. We have to speak and act for the little voices that in some cases are screaming for help to stop the pain they feel. lets do it, now.
