This video is well worth a few minutes of your time.
Hopefully, it will validate your right to have concerns, encourage you to speak them out, and to direct your energies to improving the world around you.
Even to become a whistle-blower.
Even working against powerful people who oppose you, those who are, or are leading, the willfully blind.
I have been through this process, when I saw how frequent cases of child abuse were, even in the frum/orthodox community.
I spoke up about it.
I got flack, and still get flack, from the wilfully blind.
However, I have been able to establish Magen, an organization which has successfully helped hundreds of victims/survivors of child abuse, and made our community safer for our children.
For those who believe their kids may have been abused, or you yourself are a victim/survivor of child abuse, you are invited to contact Magen.
Call: (Israel - 972) 02-9999.678
After hours: 050-8489001.
If you feel strongly that something is very wrong in your community, whether it be safety, public cleanliness, poverty, the rights of the sick...whatever, take a deep breath, and speak out. Take that first important step to fixing the problem.
