IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM THE EDITOR - Tom is at a critical juncture in this journey.

Mitch Kehn, JFS Editor.

The Journey From Silence is my commitment to ride 10,000 miles through the United States, Canada and Mexico on a 50cc scooter to raise $20,000 for charities that fight child sexual abuse.

Childhood sexual abuse did not destroy me,
but it did define my life.

Now, here’s the strength part:

A heart-felt welcome to journeyfromsilence.com. My greatest hope is that you will come away from this website inspired, strengthened, and empowered to fight for a joy that is inherently yours. My purpose is to let you know that if you are a victim of childhood sexual abuse, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. There are millions of us worldwide that have been victimized by this silent and shame-filled crime. I created this website to give myself and other survivors of childhood sexual abuse a voice. For 30 years I have been silent. I will not remain silent for one more day. I will not go on just existing. I will live, love, and flourish.

I invite you to join me on this life changing journey. There is strength in joining our hearts and hands. One survivor can make a difference. As a community of survivors and supporters, we can alter the course of how our world evolves and responds to child sexual abuse. Please join me.
