I watched last night’s ITV’s showing of ‘The Untold Story’ – Sarah Payne’s emotive account of the tragic disappearance and loss of her daughter. This amazing woman channelled her personal grief into something positive to benefit all our children in creating ‘Sarah’s Law’.
Some years back I had the opportunity to meet this formidable woman at a Stroke Association function where she was a truly inspirational speaker. Aside of the great things she has achieved she is a lovely woman and oh so humble.
As the summer holidays approach I always remind those with children to keep an eye on them as sadly those that wish our children harm are opportunists. We have to give our children freedom to some extent to allow them to be confident and grow but caution and concern remain with us on a day to day basis…even when they are grown up.
