Why I Am in Favor of VIRTUS: A Personal Witness

"A nephew of mine was one young victim among many. I have seen first-hand the suffering that follows in the wake of a sexual predator: long-lasting and oftentimes irreparable damage to the victim which affects the entire family. The best doctors, best meds, best treatments are sometimes to no avail -- not everything damaged is fixable. 
My nephew is probably as well as he will ever be. There were other classmates of his who were also abused, some doing better than others, all these years later.  And the parents had no clue what was going on. That has to end."
