Thoughts....

OK it has been a while since last I wrote, but I felt compelled after the Penn State scandal....First we are making a big deal over someone like Joe Paterno when there are 8 (maybe more) victims that had something taken from them that can never be returned....Joe Pa is not a "god" as people are making him out to be....he is an old-school football coach who used his power and ego to hide something horrific....now I don't know how much Joe knew or didn't know....but even the little I heard from him....HE FAILED AS A HUMAN BEING....he should have went to the authorities....he said he would have acted differently in hindsight....SCREW hindsight Joe, it is easy now to say that when everyone knows....you preached to these kids about being good people and to do the right thing....and what did you do....NOTHING....again....YOU FAILED those victims and countless others....you hired a monster and then you found out about this monster and you swept his crimes under the rug to save yourself and your precious reputation.....what about those victims and their LIVES....Believe me I know Joe didn't do the anything "legally wrong", but he has a moral obligation as an administrator to report these crimes....guilty as the MONSTER....Joe Pa plain and simple you are not the man you said and believe you were and worst of all you are not the man we all thought you were....

As for McQueary......there really is nothing to say....you saw it and did nothing to stop it....you are as guilty as the MONSTER....

Athletic Director and VP of Business....guilty as the MONSTER.....

Now on to the MONSTER....the definition of a monster is some one who deviates from normal or acceptable behavior or character....also the dictionary states a monster is something or a person of unnatural or extreme ugliness, deformity, wickedness, or cruelty ....I think this word doesn't properly describe who we are dealing with, but for the sake of argument let's just say he is a monster....He is the lowest form of life....he is a predator....he took something from children that can never be given back....he stole their innocence and now it is gone for good....to never return....he took their trust and mangled it.....he took their childhood and made them grow up against their will way to soon....he gave them problems for the rest of their life that they didn't deserve....for his own gratification.....and worst of all he did it over and over and over again....

How did this MONSTER slip through the cracks....how was he able to work for Penn State.....how was he able to still be around Penn State.....how was he able to deliver a keynote commencement speech at Penn State....what could that graduating class possibly learn from this MONSTER....

I am sick to my stomach writing this....because I know first hand what it feels like to have my innocence taken.....my childhood taken.....to be abused by someone you trusted....I know what these victims are going through and what they will go through and my heard hurts for them.....

To the victims....stay strong....get help and believe me it will get better and you will survive....to everyone else who reads this it is time to end this....not prevent it....IT IS TIME TO SPEAK UP AND END THIS...
