Charlene: My daughter Monica and I, who are now also City of Angel recovery coaches, we went into the middle school in Williamstown and at that point my daughter was still in a wheelchair, couldn’t walk. She gave her story, I gave mine, and later that day we were at Walmart, it was probably eight o’clock at night and my daughter said, “did you see that?” I said, “what?” She said, “the little girl over there is talking to her mom and pointing at me in the wheelchair” and I said, “well just don’t worry about it, it’s fine.” We were in another aisle and the mother comes over and taps me on the shoulder, here we go, sorry. Taps me on the shoulder and said, “I wanted to thank you,” she said, “my daughter pointed you out and said that you were speaking at her school today.” She said, “I have to fight with my kids to come and sit at the table and eat dinner,” she said, “tonight, we sat and talked for two hours about what she heard at the school.” So she said, “I’m thanking you as a mom for just opening the communication.”

Governor Christie: So important, and you know, Charlene, it becomes real because you look just like every other mom, right? And you’re daughter could have been any of those children who were sitting in that classroom and she was one of those children, right? She was one of those children. So that’s why I think it’s so important for us to, and why I’m traveling the state to do this. The more conversation we have, and the more that gets reported on and people read it, the greater opportunity we’re going to have for people to be willing to step forward themselves. We’re doing this because each little step we take, we don’t know which life we’re going to save. But if we save some, imagine the pain and the agony that we lift off people who don’t have to go through that and I have four children, I can’t imagine what folks are going through, I can’t, and so to me this is my mission not just as a Governor but as a father. And so we hope to get this message out there so people stop being ashamed, stop hiding, and get out in the open.
