Just as I'm wondering what I'm going to write about today to raise awareness of child abuse, a story over the hill, literally pops up on Facebook. It says Masury, Ohio, but it is in the country, over the line from South Pymatuning, next to Sharpsville and parts of Hermitage. A house is being searched in child porn investigation. No arrests, yet.
We truly as a country must keep our eyes, ears and senses open. It doesn't happen only in the city. The address they give in the news report is out in the country, a lonely area. I passed the road often on my way home from Ohio when I worked home health there.
We don't know. Abuse can happen anywhere. So, don't bury your head in the sand, thinking it can't happen in your quiet neighborhood. And report anything that doesn't look right.
