I Wouldn't Know What to Do!

by Lauren
(England, UK)

I am 16 years old. I have read about the stories that I think are awful...I am doing a presentation at school about it. If it happened to me, I wouldn't know what to do. Your stories have made it clear that it's hard to get out of the situation.

xx God bless you all.

Blessings to you too...

I wish you well on your presentation at school, Lauren. And I hope you learned something valuable as your read through the stories on this site. It would be a travesty if you walked away with only the belief that getting out of the situation is hard. I sincerely hope that you and members of your generation will learn about child abuse and find a way to eliminate it, or at the very least, take steps to ensure that your own future children are not abused.

Thank you for writing and sharing your blessings, Lauren. I always enjoy hearing from students.
