Points to Ponder

Everyone should know:

Domestic Violence, Teen Dating Violence, and Sexual Assault happen. Victims of these crimes can be male, female, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, questioning, and straight, rich, poor, any race, any religion, young, or old, victims can be anyone.

Violence in all its forms does not discriminate. We as suporters and advocates for victims shouldn't either. All victims deserve our help, guidance, understanding, time, and belief in their stories.

Recently Scott Weiland, band member of Stone Temple Pilots came forward and admitted he was raped as a boy. It took courage to admit it.

What do you think about his story? Think about what conclusions and assumptions you made when you read that. Do those assumptions hurt and hinder him and future victims from coming forward if you made them known to the public?

It is point to ponder.
