Welcome Tom,

If you've been reading posts on MS for a while, you know that you are not alone here. But congratulations on taking the couragous step of telling your story. When I started this journey, someone told me: "Abuse happens in secret, healing happens out loud" I hope you find that to be true.

Be well.

Tom,

Thanks for telling your story. I am not a spiritual person, but very much appreciate the strength you demonstrated. I hope one day to find the strength you have shown.
I also find it very encouraging that you have encountered exemplary people on your journey, in the two bishops who chose to take action, in spite of the turmoil that would likely result. We've all seen far too many instances swept under the rug, from churches to universities, to residential schools here in Canada, as well as hockey coaches. Those in a position of trust today have a far greater burden to carry as a result.

Keep well
