I can imagine how this would make you feel. As the story makes so clear, there's a huge difference in power here. The student skaters will of course fear to speak out against the coach; how are they not to conclude this would damage or even end their careers? I just feel for the students and how they felt as they realized that at that particular moment their careers depended on tolerating the abuse and not on their talents and athletic abilities.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
