Child abuse survivor overcomes past to fight for others

Abuse survivor and advocate Erin Merryn joins Brooke to talk about overcoming the pain of child abuse.  Erin has since used her rediscovered voice to speak out in favor of new age-appropriate curriculum in schools focused on child abuse prevention.  As a result, a law named after her now exists in order to educate kids on how to speak up if somebody is abusing them.

    Thanks for doing this extremely important segment. Erin is an extraordinary person who is determined to see that Erin's Law is passed throughout the country. She's a positive example to all.
