We are grateful that victims of Rev. Edouardare stepping forward and seeking justice in the courts. When victims stay silent, nothing changes. But when victims find the courage to take action, there's at least a chance for prevention, healing and justice.
If you were hurt by a clergy member, suffering in shame, isolation and self-blame won't fix it. Only by stepping forward, speaking up and getting help can you both recover personally and help others. Now's the time to do it.
Let’s hope that every person who has any information or suspicions that could shed light on these allegations will find the courage and strength to call police so that the full truth might become clear.
If you have knowledge or suspicions - however old, small or seemingly insignificant - about clergy sex crimes, it's your moral and civic duty to call police. Please summon the courage to do what's right, call law enforcement right away.
