SpeakingOut Volunteer from March 7, 2008 - October 16, 2011
"Before I met Susan Suafoa-Dinino, I had no idea the numbers of children being subjected to sexual abuse were so out of
control... and growing higher every year.  I think it has been kept behind closed doors far too long and I am looking forward
to helping SpeakingOut against Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. make people more aware of this most despicable crime against
our future leaders!  With your help, we can get it out in the open and break the cycle." -- Susan Otto

I met Susan Otto in October 2007 on an airplane.  I was headed to Hawaii for my oldest son's wedding & Susan was
headed to Arizona to visit her loved ones.  We just clicked and instantly became friends.  Then in March 2008, Susan
agreed to Volunteer for the non-profit organization I was about to start up...SpeakingOut against Child Sexual Abuse,
Inc..  She really cared about other people; especially children.  Susan continued to Volunteer until her passing.  I truly
miss Susan as not only a huge help to me and SpeakingOut, but as a very special & dear friend.  Susan will not be
forgotten.

What Every Parent
Should Know
------------------------------------------------
Susan Suafoa-Dinino
of  Oak Ridge, TN
(President / Founder)
was unfamiliar...the horrifying truth & reality of Child Sexual
Abuse.  As with the vast majority, I was naïve & uneducated on
this topic.  I began to research this horrific crime.  What I found
was so disturbing that I have never felt so helpless.  After 8
years of research & dealing with this crime on a personal
level, I decided that it was time to spread the knowledge that I
had obtained on this crime.  My thinking was & is…what do we
need to do to prevent children from being sexually violated in
the first place?  It is my belief that awareness is the key &
assists in prevention.      
Every single day across America, countless numbers of children are sexually violated.  
And there are so many obstacles to overcome in order to help just one child, much less
the multitudes of sexually abused children.  The task seemed impossible once I read
the statistics and learned about the failures of the systems in place that are supposed to
protect children.  The truth is that we live in a fallen world in which many children are
robbed of their innocence by sexual predators.  And they prey on children of all ages.  As
a Mother & Grandmother, it is my belief that children should be loved and cherished as
the gifts from God that they are, but more often than you or I would like to believe, they
are molested, raped and/or exploited.  It sickens me to know what children are going
through.  My heart aches for these hurting children.  Most children who are sexually
violated will never tell anyone.   And the majority of children who disclose are not being
believed and/or protected by the system.  Many are put right back in the hands of the
abuser.  

I felt for a long time that I needed to do something; that I must speak up for these most
innocent of victims…children.  But I also felt that there was no way I could make a
difference.  Over time, I began to realize that I could no longer focus on what I cannot
change & began to focus on what can be done.  I believe whole heartedly that we can
help one child at a time by SpeakingOut against Child Sexual Abuse; hence the name of
this organization.  We CAN make a difference!  Let’s “Speak up for those who cannot
speak for themselves...” (Proverbs 31:8).  The way I see it…it’s time to uncover this
hidden crime that thrives off of secrets & silence.  Let’s remove the obstacles of denial &
lack of education.  The safety of children depends on it.  By SpeakingOut against Child
Sexual Abuse, we can show the multitudes of hurting children that someone does care,
thus encouraging children to tell on their abuser.  In addition, we can begin to take a
more proactive approach to this crime by aiding in the prevention of it; doing what it takes
to stop it before children are violated.  And last but not least, we, as a society, can send a
unsuspecting, innocent children.  We will reveal not only what they do to children, but
how they silence them.

I've found that the things that are most important in life require a lot of time, hard work,
endurance, sacrifice & dedication.  I am committed to do everything I can to help children
by SpeakingOut against Child Sexual Abuse.  And we need you to get involved as well.  
These children need OUR help!  I hope & pray that you will find it in your heart to join us
in fighting against this horrific, ultimate violation of children.  Please keep in mind that
each statistic represents a real child.  Help us continue to work vigorously to raise
awareness & thus aid in the prevention of Child Sexual Abuse in America.  Will you join
us?

through love, hope & healing.”
