The thought behind this is good, but I believe it's just a publicity stunt to get money for her web site/organization. Her father has proven he is running on emotions and not reason, IMO, by lobbying for draconian laws that made people homeless and created the Julia Tuttle Causeway leper colony, which he helped create and destroy!
TALLAHASSEE - A former sexual abuse victim will walk 500 miles from Miami-Dade County to the Capitol to help other survivors and to seek laws that prevent abuse.
Lauren Book-Lim was sexually abused by a nanny for more than six years, beginning when she was 10. She and her father, lobbyist Ron Book, run a nonprofit organization that helps victims and seeks new laws.
One message Book-Lim is telling survivors is that it's OK to talk. On Monday, she said, "Sharing your story is part of healing. Abusers thrive on silence. Talking shifts the power to the victim."
- Yes, people should not be afraid to tell. Tell a parent, relative or the police, if you are being abused!
Among laws she's advocating for are measures that would create safety zones from sex offenders and eliminate a statute of limitations for people who sexually abuse children.
