them know that they are not the guilty ones and should expose this 
cancer on society.

understand how he could seduce these children's mind, in his case, 
using the worst tool of all, 'for their spiritual advancement'. What 
I can't forgive is that he committed a crime against the soul, the 
higher self, he recruited for the dark magicians for his own sexual 
perversion. My psyche may have been corrupted but not my soul. I 
take it not as a victim but as a survivor who knows that in some 
lifetime I weilded unjust power over others, and have now learned how 
power in the wrong hands causes devastation, and that the majority of 
authoritians use their authoritity as a front for overpowering others.
