This must have been a huge downer! I know for me, having something like that happening to a child I know would, I think be as bad as having it happen to my own kid--though having had none of my own, I can't speak from experience.

I don't know if we will ever have a world where children are safe. I had a similar public restroom experience as a child. To this day I loathe using public restrooms.

I think it was a victory of sorts myself. I wouldn't want to downplay the distress this could cause the kid, nor the fact that the perp should have never done this to start, but the kid completely handled this situation very well. Kudos to him. He should be commended for how he handled the situation and know that this was in no way his fault.

Ah, "The System"... it's not perfect (by any means) but it's all we have.
(I'm sure you don't need me to say this but it makes me feel better to) Please reassure 'little Buddy' that he's done nothing fact he's a hero...protecting all of the kids this perp would have hurt if he didn't have the courage to say something!

Yay little Buddy!!!

I hope the system can be trusted. Buddy did exactly the right thing. It helps my heart to hear this was taken seriously by, first of all his parents but also the theatre management, the police and prosecutor. Good luck. Now if only the judge gets it. We hope to hear this handled firmly.

God grant me
The Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference.

Thanks for keeping us informed Ron. It's so heartening to hear a story where the child TELLs someone and it's dealt with well. My thoughts are with you.

Et par le pouvoir d’un mot Je recommence ma vie, Je suis né pour te connaître, Pour te nommer

And by the power of a single word I can begin my life again, I was born to know you, to name you

Here's praying that Buddy is completely victorious in court, and is comforted and healed by the process!

"Thou, O Lord, are the shield about me;
You're my helper,
You're the one who lifts up my head."
