Sandy, Thank you for your article. I am happy to know that there are people out there that will support the ones on the registry. I am sadden that those people get chastised for sticking up for someone on the registry. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and if you don’t follow what everyone else thinks you face the consequences. I will be in the same situation shortly as my daughter will be on the registry. I will defend her until my death. No one knows the problems that registrants and their families have until you are there. And no one knows each registrants story, because each one has their own unique story. People need to stop judging until they actually know the full story. The registry needs to be abolished or at the very least removed from the public.
