Bernie mentioned last night that a survey of Australians that required people to rank their concerns about various issues, showed that most people were more concerned about council fees than about child abuse! As a survivor of 14 years of sexual abuse by my father, I think that this is despicable. As a human being I'm appalled at the lack of concern for abused children. The child abuse prevention association was also horrified, but I can't see the government doing anything more than they are currently. It's completely and utterly ridiculous. And then those people wonder why there are so many dysfunctional familes, troubled kids, suicides, drug users, and so much violence. BAH!
