There is an epidemic in our country –

The sexual abuse and exploitation of children is a topic barely palatable for most, so we choose to ignore it – assuring ourselves that, “it doesn’t happen in our society.”

But the truth is in Indiana alone, 40% of victims recovered were under 15 years of age. Additionally, recent data shows those recovered were as young as 4 when first victimized.

“Last year, tech companies reported over 45 million online photos and videos of children being sexually abused – more than double what they found the previous year. Twenty years ago, online images were a problem; 10 years ago, an epidemic. Now the crisis is at a breaking point.”
