to decide when others are ready to heal.
"There will now be a decade or more of criminal trials, and perhaps a
quarter-century or more of civil actions, as a result of what went on at
Penn State. These things cannot be prayed away. Let us hear nothing
about "closure" or about "moving on." And God help us, let us not hear a
single mumbling word about how football can help the university "heal."
(Lord, let the Alamo Bowl be an instrument of your peace.) This wound
should be left open and gaping and raw until the very last of the
children that Jerry Sandusky is accused of raping somehow gets whatever
modicum of peace and retribution can possibly be granted to him. This
wound should be left open and gaping and raw in the bright sunlight
where everybody can see it, for years and years and years, until the
raped children themselves decide that justice has been done. When
they're done healing — if they're ever done healing — then they and
their families can give Penn State permission to start."
Right to the point, and right on.
