When asked about her involvement with 'Black Out Child Abuse' she responded, "Everyone has been touched by child abuse - either directly, or indirectly. If we haven't been on the receiving end, we certainly can recall someone we know that has been. It's a terrible thing for a child to go through... and to overcome. We need our children to be protected, loved and inspired to do great things so they grow up to be the leaders of our Country and protectors of those of us who are watching out for them now"
