Abused should get to meet Pope

As a survivor of child abuse, I do not share the sentiments of some fellow survivors -- who appear unable to come to terms with their tragic lives and are happy to play out their pain on radio and TV.

I don't know what the survivors or media expected Pope Benedict to say or do. Even if he had made a full apology, it would not have been enough.

I have come to terms with my abuse. Nobody can live on the stale bread of hate without being consumed by it.
