Summer camps too? Let's hope the summer camps and 37 years of busdriving have not left behind a scattered trail of complicated or injured kids. A child predator cannot be cured. But one could have chosen to manage one's condition in ways other than jobs WITH children, and thus prevent injury and complication to others. God help these kids, parents, coworkers and our entire community unite and heal.
