Denial

Standard

“That’s the core of the whole problem. Denial. Mothers deny it’s happening to their children so they can keep their families together. The rest of us refuse to believe that our doctor or our minister or the nice mailman is having sex with his three year old child because if we do, we admit that the whole venner of civilization is bullshit. Worse, we’d have to admit the danger that our own kids are in. Because if we can’t recognize the abusers we shake hands with every day, how can we protect our children?” Blood Memory, Greg Iles.
