#MeToo and national issues revolving around the Supreme Court nomination and the current president cast a much-needed spotlight upon sexual abuse.

Finally, there is a high profile investigation into the Catholic orphanage in Burlington. One issue is the children placed there as wards of the state of Vermont.

Additionally, small group homes and boarding schools, and one not so small, where children, again placed by the state of Vermont, were sexually abused.

All of these victims deserve the justice of a deep and thorough investigation and subsequent prosecution no matter how far in the past such abuse happened.
