Resilience at ground zero

Trauma, healing, heroes, villains, hyperbole, scandal, fear, shaming, slander, stigma, cognitive dissonance distract from focus on child protection and lessons learned.

Castigating a community as enablers discourages an honest dialog about prevention.

Media and pundits disservice children to report scandal without public health messages.
