dear Natalie - the first time I saw a few SGs on a TV show I was just stunned. I didn't even know it was going to be aired and suddenly saw these few kids talking to a journalist about their ordeal. I was struck with how alone they were in their struggle and that no one is speaking for them and they had to go on a TV show to get someone to listen to them. It was a very heartbreaking experience for me. This was about 7 or 8 years ago. I applaud each and every one of you for standing up with nothing to gain except to bring the abusers to justice. And I admire you for your courage and your willingness to risk your own reputations for the sake of others. I Also believe you, I know this stuff happened. It happened to someone very close to me who was only 12 years old at the time. This was going on in TF and it was policy and anyone who doesn't believe it has a few screws lose, IMO.
