In 2006 David took the first step in acknowledging the sexual abuse that was perpetrated against him from the ages of 12 to 15. During those 3 years, the foundation his family had worked so hard to build within him was destroyed by one man, his youth minister. The result was his heart, mind and faith were lost. After having kept this secret for more than 25 years, he was finally able to reveal to his family and friends the reason behind the addiction and self-destruction that at times had him incarcerated, eventually left him destitute and nearly ended his life. Fortunately he was blessed with amazing friends and a loving family who helped him get the help and therapy he so desperately needed. He was finally able to get clean from the grip of addiction and face the demon of sexual abuse that had clouded his life for so long. Now he and his wife work to aid their fellow survivors through the non-profit they created, Together We Heal. The mission of Together We Heal is to provide guidance for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, educating parents and all adults through public speaking on matters concerning Childhood Sexual Abuse and giving a safe forum for victims of abuse to share, learn and heal.

  1. Reblogged this on NO MORE SHAME and commented:
    this is so sad, and unfortunately happens far more than we are made aware of. This also says far more about the society we all live in, that this sort of behaviour is common today. My heart goes out to this beautiful young girls family and friends.

  2. It’s sickening, really. And I have to wonder how it ever got this bad.

  3. I shared this on Twitter yesterday and again today. I thanked people for retweeting your article from my sharing it on Twitter at least 10 times throughout the day and evening yesterday. The word is getting out to be vocal and to stop child abuse and to stop bullying. Thank you writing this article. We are making a difference.

  4. Year after year, mounting statistics of people commit suicide. Due to the recent death of comedian Robin Williams, there is undoubtedly a MUST for support. Honestly, life IS hard and cruel and selfish. But, that is why we always need “someone to lean on”. With love and understanding, we can teach others to face life, NOT with despair, but with hope and resilience.
    People slip and fall at times, but they need, if you will, a hand to pull them up. They need to remember that “tomorrow will always come”.

    Happy day 🙂
