My husband is doing a motorcycle ride today called the Ride for Life to benefit the Baltimore Child Abuse Center..
They say that every 1 in 3 girls & 1 in 7 boys will be sexually abused before the age of 18.. 89% of all victims know, love and trust their abuser.. The national average age of victims, 3-8 years old.. The national average jail term for abusers, less then 2 years.
How do you feel about that? Do you think the statistics are accurate? Or do you feel since there are so many unreported cases that the statistics are off?

I also think there are a lot more that were not hearing about. My son has a Harley club and they ride for abused children and for Christmas gifts for them. It breaks my heart every time I watch the news about a child being abused and here in Fla it's everyday. I wish that they would be put on an dam island for the rest of their miserable life when they hurt a child or animal. I so wish the laws would change on the time served for these crimes. God Bless the little children. Great question XX.......now if we could do something about it.....Hugs
