John, I wanted to add comment to your re-post on Oct 9th. You mentioned how you travel with your choir around once per month and where possible share your story in the hope of preventing others from having to ensure what you (and many others of us here) have had to.

I'm glad you shared that and also wanted to say that I too have made such a decision. I determined long ago that even if I couldn't get the answers to the why and I realised that the clock couldn't get turned back, I determined that even as painful as it might be, that I would help others and do all that I could in either prevention or helping those that had been hurt. I even prayed that out to God and He seems to answer that from time to time.

It hurts each time I do, and I rarely disclose my own past. I just help any way I can and intend on doing so till my dying day.
