Script in English

CHILD: It hurts bad in my lips. It hurts bad everywhere. His caress hurts bad, when he has gone. Living it is hurting me bad. Dying like this, it is hurting me bad. Even my soul hurts me bad, in my room.

VO: 3 out of 10 minors are sexually abused. What should we do? Look at them, talk to them,
listen to them. Open your eyes Unicef.

Script in Orginal Language

NIÑO: Como dueles en los labios. Como duele en todos lados. Como duelen sus caricias, cuando ya se ha ido. Como duele estar viviendo. Como duele estar muriendo así. Como me duele hasta el alma en mi habitación.

VO: 3 de cada 10 menores de edad son abusados sexualmente. ¿Qué hacer? Obsérvale, háblale, escúchale. Abre los ojos. Un mensaje de Unicef
