You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry. I know that nothing can undo the wrong you have endured. Your trust hasb een betrayed and your dignity has been violated. We are all scandalised by the sins and failures of some of the Church's members.
Pope Benedict XVI
Apology to Irish victims of sex abuse by priests, in a letter to Irish Catholics.

I was covered in scars from the beatings, and she used to say it was hockey. . . She'd apologise. She was in pain. I understand that now, but you don't when you're three and four and you're being beaten to death with a hoover.
Brenda Fricker
Actress on how her bipolar manic depressive mother used to beat her as a child.

Unfortunately, I experienced some sexual abuse. It was a known and admitted fact of life amongst us that there was this particular man, and you didn't want to be left in the dressing room with him. It took many years to come to terms with it and to forgive those incidents that I felt had deeply hurt me.
Gabriel Byrne

Took my sister and brothers oh
I watched her torturing my child
Feeble I was then but now I'm grown
Fire on Babylon
Sinead O'Connor
Singer on how her mother abused her as a child, from song Fire on Babylon.

The Christian Brothers were fairly mangled fellows in Navan. Some men speak highly of them. Unfortunately I never saw that. I just remember the brutality. The Paddtbats, the straps that would fly out of the soutane like vipers' tongues, the beatings amidst the prayers - whack!
Pierce Brosnan
Actor on his abuse by religious brothers while a boy at school in Ireland.

I was angry about the fact that my father would beat my mother on a daily basis, that my mother would take it in turn and beat on me. I was an abused child. I was mad about all those things, very bitter and very angry.
Rick James

We expect teachers to handle teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, and the failings of the family. Then we expect them to educate our children.
John Sculley

I believe the best service to the child is the service closest to the child, and children who are victims of neglect, abuse, or abandonment must not also be victims of bureaucracy. They deserve our devoted attention, not our divided attention.
Kenny Guinn

Child abuse does not go away, but 90 percent of child abuse is preventable.

Matt Blunt

Bob Ney

Child abuse and neglect is sometimes the result of a parent who reaches the end of their frustration and tolerance level. If we can give parents tools to deal with an infant who is particularly challenging with their crying, we will have taken an important step toward our prevention mandate.
Gary Kleeblatt

Child abuse is a problem no one really talks about. Abuse and neglect is the number 1 cause of injury to children in the country. More children die of abuse or neglect than of natural causes.
