  • I think the reason why people say things like "It was only four days" and "I should've done this" is because it is so difficult to relate to hardship you haven't experienced. I lost my best friend when I was 23 years old and whenever I bring that up, I notice the tell tale signs of someone wanting to escape the conversation, but I can't fault them for that, because the next time someone starts talking about something terrible that I can't relate to, I will also start showing these signs. Yet, we can - without problems - talk about some guy dying on the other side of the planet. It's all about perspective and while it is really hard to ALSO have that in the back of your mind when you're suffering through trauma, you have to realize that some (if not most) people won't accept this information into their minds. I think its a coping mechanism of the brain, but I have to say that saying to someone "It wasn't that bad, it was only four days." is a very wrong way to deflect that trauma.

  • I almost got kidnapped a old man in a red truck pulled up to my mom's house and he said do you wanna pet my dog and eat some candy like almost every kidnapper says and I said hold on let me tell my mom so I did and my big sisters came out and yelled at the old man and said to move of the fucking road and then he went back moving on the road and I never Sall him again.And I was 3 when this happened

  • the people in this vid are soldiers of mental physical and sexual abuse i know people who went though physical and sexual abuse too never forget that being in a life threating situation even for four days or tow can fell like an entirety of emotion and pain it can be 3 minutes at a time and you go back to your life but it will always hurt inside pain shapes the mind and soul and heart but the most important is the care and empathy for one an other-my mother

  • My dad was always super strict about the safety of my siblings and I. I was young during the 80/90s when abduction was a huge topic. We always thought he was too protective. Then my little brother was almost taken in our front yard right in front of me. The guy didn't see me or my dad bc we were hidden from this guy's view. But we were both less than 6 feet from where my brother was playing. A creepy guy appeared and ask if our dad is around. My dad was on him in a second. "Can I help you?" The guy freaked out and ran. Thank God he asked a question and didn't just grab him. When I see little kids playing by themselves, I cringe.

  • Why in the frick would you befriend that monster and let him have a relationship with your CHILD knowing that he literally ABDUCTED someone? That was the mom's fault and I don't feel bad for her at all. I feel horrible for that little girl. Her mom failed her.

  • The majority of people in jail that were pedophiles are abused and raped by other prisoners, mostly because many prisoners also experienced a childhood full of abuse and rape. Prison is the worst punishment for a kidnapper or pedophile and they completely deserve it.

  • My 3 older brothers were abducted by their father and were missing for 10 years. Their dad was on America's Most Wanted for a while. But at the time that everything occurred there were no resources in our town for my mother. Before he left he made sure to get the police on his side. So and my mother went to them saying that he had taken her boys they ignored her. They spent every last time they could on a private investigator who took advantage of them. It is so amazing to think of my life back then. There were so little resources that were offered and this topic was not talked about at all if any. A lot of people thought, " Oh well, they are safe. They are with their dad." Many people ask why my brothers didn't just pick up the phone and call my mom. But nothing is that simple. He changed their names and social security numbers and made them believe that they were making the best choice. When we found them they were brain washed. Their father told them my mom was an evil woman who was a drug addict. She's never taken a drug in her life. They had no idea that they were in the hands of the evil one. They were mentally and physically abused by their father the entire time. When everything was finished my parents had to go to court. The judge told my mom that she could choose to put him in jail and risk the chance of never having a relationship with her children or she could let him go on probation and possibly begin to build a relationship with her 3 boys. She chose to put him on probation for 2 years.

  • My cousin is also a survivor. Glad he is a boy but still. He know how to defend himself but he is afraid, that day when he was kidnapped he was really scared af. He was raped by a old man he said he escaped from the house because the old man is drunk as hell, he said that he choked him and kick him in the balls and he kicked the door so he can get out and run to the closest police station. since that day he is now a confident and overprotective cousin. He also promised me that he will protect me at all cost.

  • I had an evil 4th grade teacher who targeted students, I think she was trying to cause me to commit suicide, of course, I didn't - but that teacher was trying to hurt me mentally, & emotionally. My mother pulled me out of that school because she was afraid I would have a nervous breakdown at 9 years old. She was mentally, & emotionally trying to get me to feel loss, and confused, like an outcast. She was trying to destroy me mentally with horrid mind games.

Anyways, I am just really happy for the people who survived this.

They took my hand and tried to lead me out of the store, and I realized it wasn't him. I started freaking out and screaming and my grandpa ran out and got me. Later we found out that person had stalking charges against him and was planning to kidnap other people

  • I was groomed when I was 15 years old and I worry so often that the man who did it did it to someone else. I didn't want to go to the police about it because I didn't want to be downplayed or criticized. For the longest time, I blamed myself for getting myself into the situation. Downplayed myself saying it wasn't as bad as I thought it was, it wasn't grooming, whatever. The amount of self doubt you experience is huge.

  • Pedophilia is not a sexuality. Minors cannot give anyone consent, it's not just unlawful it's totally disgusting that people look at kids and have these thoughts.

    kavya reddykavya reddyDay ago
    • @Boboqt Vv discussing and getting help is fine... but things this and rapes are what make them dangerous. You are right this should be talked about, they need to he understood as well before they become dangerous.

      kavya reddykavya reddy17 hours ago
    • I think you get it. But also you dont. "Minors cannot give anyone consent" thats absolutelly right and is the reason why its immoral and not because its "disgusting". Most people would find coprolagnia disgusting and I can never wrap my head around it but is it immoral? hmm not really. Ofc for most of us children are the epitomy of innocense and the thought that someone can see them in a sexual way is beyond repulsive but as I said before its not the reason why its wrong. We need to seperate the action of sexually assaulting a child with people that happen to be sexually attracted to children. Pedophiles need to be able to open up and disguss their situation and feelings nomatter how uncomfortable it makes us.
