I joined MS a few days ago after finding out about the site from an article in the Atlanta paper from one of the MS Board Members. He was asked to comment on a story the AJC ran about my abuser. I was led several weeks ago to the Boy Scout perversion files and found my abuser listed. And after not knowing what to do with that information I have now decided to come forward and tell my story publically revealing my name. My hope here is to connect with other men and hear about their journeys as I continue to navigate through mine. I feel I am being called to shed light on this awfulness. Thank you for welcoming me and I look forward to connecting with some of you.
