i am shaking so bad right now.
i just saw the child abuse investigation team on campus a few minutes ago.
and just now, as i was supervising a study hall, the school counselor came to ask if one of the freshman boys could be excused.
this is a student that i didn't already know was at risk.
i am crying and screaming on the inside - but have to maintain a calm and unaffected exterior.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
