i couldn't remember any names of leaders - and only one name of the older boys that were abusive. i scanned every page, pausing every time i came across a listing for the state where it happened. nothing. they flew beneath the radar, apparently. the files began 2 years after i left at age 13, but many of the same boys and leaders would still have been active members then - so i guess nobody talked. disappointing.
"the scariest thing about abuse of any shape or form, is, in my opinion, not the abuse itself, but that if it continues it can begin to feel commonplace and eventually acceptable."
- Alan Cumming, "Not My Father's Son"
