I am not from State College and after ten years (off and on) I am still not used to the Penn State crazy, so I don't quite understand the local uproar and downpour and why I hear more concern about football legacies and defending PSUs image than child abuse. Worry and support seems severely misplaced in this situation. I know that a lot more people have been to a Penn State football game than heard a child talk about their abuse firsthand, but if you have you don't worry about whether a coach still has his job or not. How could that be what people are worried about, boggles my mind. Why has this situation created cheer and applause and a renewed sense of pride?

BUT. I have off Sunday, my phone will be replaced, water is on and hot, husband will come home, the world will keep turning, State College is a superb place to live, I will keep helping kids who desperately need it, and there are pretty things in the world.
Remember that Friday is Veterans Day.
