Bravo Irishguy,

I'm glad that one more is off the street. The little lad is something to be proud of as are you for pushing through your issues to help him.

I'm glad you found strength and wisdom from this experience. Now you have direction in your recovery and found the strength to follow through.

Ar fheabhas!

I missed your earlier post, so I just read up on it now. This is a great thing you have done. It's wonderful that you're helping yourself by helping him. And who knows how many others you've made safer now?

\:D !

I'm SO proud of you and that brave, brave child!

What you've done, my friend, is incredible. You've brought justice for the boy and taken a BIG piece of your own life back.

It's to be commended. A victory so large, particularly in Europe where this sort of thing tends to be swept under the rug until the scandal gets too big to hide (I know it's here too, but we've heard of the grotesque stories in the US more), is major.

Again, I'm so happy for you both. If possible, give him a big hug for me and take a HUGE one for yourself.

Peace and love,

That is so huge. Some of the guys will be walking or running in the Break the Silence run and walk tomorrow in Washington D. C.. If I were there, I would dedicate my effort to you.
Thank you so much for giving that boy, us, a voice.

Bravo Irish Guy!

I have always heard that Ireland was the land of heroes and Champions...and now there's yet another Irish Hero! Brilliant!
