For them, this is more than just a trial of a public figure affiliated with a renowned university. It’s more than a top story on the evening news.
It’s personal. Deeply personal.
At RiseAndShineMovement.org, we teach adults to listen, to believe, and to take action when a child discloses abuse.
And in survivors' hearts all across the nation and the world they wonder: Were the witnesses for the prosecution listened to? Believed? Although the justice system has taken action, will justice be served?
I don’t know. The jury is still out.
But no matter the verdict, I pray survivors keep telling . . . until someone listens, until someone believes, until someone takes action.
Children are worthy of protection. Survivors are worthy of being heard.
