How many victims

How many silent others
who have known this secret
who have been touched as children
silent, tortured in their spirits

How many victims
have watched this all unfolding
watching as the jury returned
the many guilty verdicts

Have we learned anything
about the abuse of power
will more be reported
after this fateful hour

June 23, 2012
based on comment by attorney for one of
the Sandusky victims
after the verdict
