Tyler Perry’s Open Letter to Penn State 11-Year-Old

Tyler Perry wrote an open letter in Newsweek magazine to the boy who first accused Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse.  Read the letter here. This is just a wonderful message to give this boy and anyone else who is a victim of abuse. Tyler Perry is also a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Here is a powerful image from the letter:  If every man who has ever been molested would speak up, you would see that we’re all around you. You may not know all of our faces and names, but my prayer is that you feel our strength holding you up. You will get through this; you’ve already endured the worst part at age 11. Now fight on, my young friend, fight on!
