It's been years since I've been back here so I thought I would re-introduce myself with a copy of my letter to the Sandusky victims. I think it would be great if others could be added here.


To the brave guys of Penn State:

I was sexually abused by a man while I was a teenager, after several years of being bullied and physically abused by my elementary school principal who was also my math teacher.

I didn't tell anyone until the principal (who knew my family) had died many years later.

I wish I had been able to come forward, as you have so bravely done, because the results of hiding have not been very happy - addiction and AIDS being the two most obvious.

This is why I am so inspired by your bravery. You have a wonderful opportunity to begin recovery from this terrible ordeal.

You can be certain it will not be easy but I just want you to know that I am one of the millions of victims who didn't come forward - all around the world - now rooting for you one hundred percent!

Best wishes,
