To the Penn State student body: After the initial shock of hearing that Jerry Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing young boys, you stood up and aligned yourselves with the men who were abused.
You raised money for them, declared your solidarity with them, and grieved with them.
Once again, you are called upon to be with the men who were abused as they are abused once more through the filing of a misguided lawsuit that is, essentially, an attempt to host a pity party for Penn State and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Please resist Gov. Tom Corbett’s unfortunate actions and call for him to withdraw his lawsuit, so the focus will once again be where it belongs; on the men who were abused and their recovery.
Corbett is sad that profits are down 10 percent among State College businesses as a result of the sanctions. That’s the point, isn’t it?
Everyone has to suffer a bit because of the decades-old failure to keep children safe.
Everyone benefited “big time” when the money was pouring in, but remember, some young boys were being sexually abused while that money was pouring in — and many people knew about it.
It’s time to let the sanctions be a lesson.
