Another public figure has come forward as a survivor of sexual abuse. “Senator Scott Brown, describing a childhood of family violence and strife, reveals in his new autobiography that he was sexually assaulted as a 10-year-old by a summer camp counselor on Cape Cod.”
Within the past few years, a rapidly growing number of celebrities and public figures have begun publicly disclosing the sexual abuse they suffered as children. In the United States alone, there are an estimated 40 million survivors of sexual abuse. Each celebrity that comes out as a survivor takes a huge step in helping millions of silent victims across the United States.
On behalf of Darkness to Light we want to thank Scott Brown for his courage! We also want to encourage everyone to learn more about PREVENTION, with the hope that 40 million children won’t have to endure the pain of sexual abuse.
