This entire Penn State scandal has me up in arms. I was already a cautious parent but now I feel the need to go a step further yet I know it could still happen which is what frightens me as child predators have no special look or smell. I have been talking to both of my kids, girl and boy, about this as I constantly encourage them that they can tell me anything. I look in their eyes and I silently wept as I pray that they hear every word as it leaves my mouth.
As an adult, I could not imagine witnessing any transgression with an adult and a child and not take immediate action. Our society has become so numb that we look away and expect someone else to handle it. I realize the incident was reported to several people but no one did anything to help and/or protect any future children.
