"The sexual abuse and exploitation of children is one of the most vicious crimes conceivable, a violation of mankind's most basic duty to protect the innocent." ~James T. Walsh

I saw this. I agree with it. My sons have been involved in Boy Scouts and their online training course and policies are impressive. It is also stressed and beyond question that they will be followed in my experience. There were at least two situations that were outright cancelled when the two deep rule couldn't be followed. While we as a society have a lot to do to stop CSA, we also need to acknowledge when progress has been made.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.

Good to see this! Yes, a hopeful message of successes and progress is more engaging than fear and hopelessness.

Et par le pouvoir d’un mot Je recommence ma vie, Je suis né pour te connaître, Pour te nommer

And by the power of a single word I can begin my life again, I was born to know you, to name you
