Secrecy is Really a 4 Letter Word.

I’ve been overwhelmed with request to fight this or that. Complain more. Talk about (fill in the blank) because afterall it is April and you have the ear of many. I am proud to say this is true. But, I can’t do it all.

Someone is offended because I don’t try to rally people againt Child Protective Services. I don’t. They are correct. I have zero experience to complain about. I have known people who were over worked, offices that have been understaffed and most recently saw two little children who should have been removed from their parents long before they were. The judge was attempting to keep the family, which was and is miserably broken, glued together. Which side are you on? Keeping the child in the home or removing them?

Then there is the teacher or day care worker whose background check was clean. This only means that they weren’t caught previously. Secrecy, shame and unacceptable conversation working to thier advantage.

Someone else is offended that I don’t take on the courts, trafficking, prostitution… I have no real experience here either. hoever, I kknow it is also mired in secrecy and shame.

I wish I had an answer for all this. I don’t. I only know in my heart that the best defense is open conversation. ALL of this must become acceptable to talk about. Take the weapon of secrecy out of the abusers hands.

We are all after all looking for the same end. Safe, happy, well adjusted children to go forward into the future with peaceful hearts to become loving productive adults.

  4. No one can cover every aspect of this problem. You are kind, brave and thoughtful. Most of all, you are shining a bright light on secrets. That is your call and I believe it is a powerful call.

    Each individual, if they are ready, must name their own secret and run with it. You can only encourage them. You cannot do the work for them.

    You have named your secret. Probably one of the most horrific secrets of all. My secret was lies upon lies upon lies. Now, it is anger. You helped me to name it. Mostly, you helped me say it out loud.

    Don’t listen to the negative voices. Many are hurt and angry, but I suspect some want to shut you down. Secrets hate truth and light. Keep going. Darkness always hates light. You’ve got this!

    • Thank you. You are so right! I was thinking about this as I went to sleep last night. Lots of angry people for all sorts of reasons. I was one of them for a long time. Say it out loud. My favorite thing to hear. Bring it into the sunlight and watch it crumble.

      Love and hugs to you Pastor Pam for sharing in this conversation. Have a marvelous rest of the week. Annie
