    Silent No More is written by Aaron of course his psychologist Mike Gillum and his mother Dawn Daniels The story does not give too much information about the actual abuse It was handled very appropriately The story is really about the time period from when Aaron disclosed what had happened to him for the first time up until Sandusky was convictedI really enjoyed reading the story from the different view points involvedDawn Apparently Dawn has taken uite a bit of criticism People have had a lot of uestions about why she didn't see something why she trusted Sandusky etc I am embarrassed to admit that I had wondered some of the same things However hearing Dawn's point of view I now understand Gavin De Becker in his book Protecting the Gift talks about how our intutition warns us about things and unfortunately we all of us are prone to ignore it through denial minimalization and refusal Dawn did these things as almost all of us would Hopefully reading this book we can learn from her experience But Dawn deserves credit for the things she did right When Aaron told her she believed him she supported him and stood behind him For that I consider her a hero Any mom who is a mother bear for her child is a good momAaron I am also a survivor of childhood sexual abuse so I was horrified when I realized how many times he was expected to repeat his storyin detailI'm 46 and my abuse was a long time ago and I don't think I could do that I have talked to my therapist but I don't discuss the details with anyone else I can't imagine how Aaron found the courage at such a young age to share his story again and again to different state troopers and then to two grand juries Aaron is a hero to me Because he was so brave many boys lives will be spared I am so sorry for his pain I understand it as one who shares itMike I wish that every child that came forward about abuse could have the support and kindness that he showed not only to Aaron but to Dawn as well Mike's perspective was a wonderful addition to the bookThere is so much that can be gleaned from this book about how to prevent abuse warning signs to be aware of and what to do when a child comes forward shown by Dawn and Mike and unfortunately a lot of what not to do It should not have taken three years to arrest that monster As a fellow survivor that infuriates meA great book well worth the read

    For all my family and friends who have sympathy for the PSU folks who covered things up or did nothing to stop it I ask you to read this book It is a fast read only 200 pages I read it in 2 days I sickens me that this happened and can happen anywhere but I graduated from PSU so even sad It is all about the victims of sexual child abuse not the football not the fans not the folks who helped cover up Sandusky's crimes against innocent children We can not be too careful when protecting children

    Eh what happened to this boy is obviously sad but this book was just another thrown together attempt to get a book on the shelves before the public lost interest The way it was written was annoying the chapters alternated between the victim his mom and his psychologist His mom's chapters were just her trying to convince the reader that she wasn't a bad mom Plus they echoed Aaron's chapters so you basically felt like you were living Groundhogs Day reading about the same incident over and over The psychologist's chapters had the promise of being intersting but they ended up feeling like him tooting his own horn about all the good he'd done how much he'd sacrificed in his personal life and how messed up the system was I didn't really follow this story that closely in the media so it was also annoying that all three seemed to write from the assumption that you knew the basics that were reported on If you didn't you just ended up feeling lost I wish this boy the best but I think his book could have been insightful if he'd given it a little time

    Wowthis was an amazing story Yes sadly I followed the Jerry Sandusky trial and always shook my head amazed at the informationstory I remember calling my son and asking him if any of his coaches in any of his years of sports had ever entered the showers when any of the boys were in there Of course he said noWe had an incident of a sexual predator within the circle of our acuaintances and didn't have any idea that he was one until about September It was frightening to hear how he had tried to form an attachment with my young grandson and how grateful I was that his parents tho they knew of our 'friendship' with this man listened to the icky feelings inside felt something was off and kept their son away from this manSo it's with that background that I read this book I actually read it in the 5 hours it took to drive home from Jocelyn's I read it aloud to Robert as he drove There was only one small part that made you want to vomit and it wasn't in the specific details but in the thoughts that you couldn't escape We paused for a bit and I agreed not to read any such sections aloud and promised to scan ahead and stop I didn't need to It was all done with careful wording But I truly believe it's a story that needs to be read by everyone I think all parents grandparents particularly church leaders who generally speaking are a bunch of loving innocents naive in factThe story is told from 3 eyesVictim #1 his mom and his counselor who stood by him from start to finish Truly this is an incredible story and I hope one that this young Aaron will be able to overcome and be successful Again I am reminded of what Robert has always taught the kidsmake NO MAN your hero your role model Only one will never let you down And lastly we no longer can stand by and do nothing We no longer can turn a blind eye to what we think or know is going on We must be vigilant as was Mike the counselor in pushing for the legal process to be complete and that justice is experiencesPLEASE READ THIS BOOK

    5 stars each to Aaron and Dawn for being so candid about their experiences2 stars to Mike who feels to me like he has blurred a lot of boundaries and also seems to not see the important distinction between a clinical assessment and treatment and a forensic interview of a child As a social worker who has spent years working on the criminal and investigative side of child sex abuse cases much of Mike's commentary made me cringe He was so upset about Aaron being asked to speak to law enforcement and i'm talking about the first time the multiple investigative interviews that happened were absolutely unnecessary and problematic and said he had to talk to a stranger DUDE YOU were a stranger instead of doing a full interview with him at CYS you should have referred him immediately to an multi disciplinary teamugh i was so annoyed

    It's a sad and horrible story obviously of the long time abuse of a child by a local hero Years of torment not only from the abuse itself but the years following trying to get justice Freighting to read how much influence an important person of the community has how the place can be so blind to defend the offenders and not care about the victims That was interesting through a psychological standpointBut the book itself is uite boring though thankfully short It was lots of repetition and specially the mother's contribution was just repeating of what's been said previously and unnecessary The psychologist's chapters were the most interestingAll in all an okay uick read

    Aaron Fisher the first of Jerry Sandusky's victims to come forward is a hero the strength and bravery it must have taken for him to tell his story repeatedly is amazingThis is a well written book with different chapters told from the point of view of Aaron his mother Dawn and his psychologist MikeI come away from it thinking that Aaron is an amazing young man with so much potential and that Jerry Sandusky is a sick predator with a trail of victims that we may never truly know about
