We don't know how the horrific allegations involving former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky will proceed.

We only know this: We must all be advocates for children.

Some workers, including teachers, doctors and nurses, law enforcement and clergy members, are mandated to report child abuse — or face prosecution.
