In the wake of the recent news of child sexual abuse allegations at Penn State, it is clear that we still have a long way to go to protect our children. Most often, children are abused by people they know, respect and trust, not by unknown strangers lurking in alleyways waiting for a chance to victimize children. Abusers can be upstanding citizens and pillars of the community. They are parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts, doctors, coaches, pastors, teachers, child care providers, youth group leaders, and others entrusted to care for and guide our children.
