Rabbit and Cognizant dissident
One of the things that has saved me and my sanity was being able to talk about what has happened in my life , making a conscious choice that it would stop being destruction in my lifetime to me personally and I made a conscious choice when I was young that I would turn it into something positive, the only thing so far I can see possibly making it positive is by helping kids, I don't think I would be able to help offenders, because I wouldn't be biased enough. So People are needed that can help pedophiles also,
Rabbit What your wife has gone through is very much what others go through, family and friends do not want to believe their loved one could be such a monster and they will deny , deny ,deny. sometimes just so they can survive the insanity of believeing there loved could do such a thing. My heart goes out to her and to you it takes a special partner to be able to understand and offer support when needed.
I don't have the statistics on children murdered, I do know the stats all too well on rape and sexual crimes cause I have had to deal with them so much. But with all the murders we hear about there are scores more we do not hear about.
FHN You are exactly right! pedophiles get off the undeveloped bodies and innocent looks of kids,
And as far as seeing JoBonet we never seen her as the beauty queen until she was murdered.
I have relatives that have been in beauty reviewes and pagents to compete for money.scholorships etc. and cameras are not allowed in them except by the pagent it self and parents can buy a recording of that after ward. They didn't parade the child around in the fancy duds. just for the competions.
