Penn State, Wet Hair and a Mother’s Love

What was missing at Penn State?  Love.

Here, I post a thoughtful piece by Tim Henderson, director of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) at Penn State.  A must read.

Excerpt:

“First, though, consider two of the victims described in the grand jury’s findings in the case against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky. According to the report a graduate assistant saw a 10-year-old boy (victim two) pressed against a shower wall being raped. The assistant then left, eventually called his boss, and reported what he had seen, just as he was legally obligated to do.

In contrast, when victim six returned home from a visit with Sandusky, his mom noticed he had wet hair. On the basis of that small detail alone she was concerned and learned that they had showered together. Immediately this mom called the police, cooperated in a wiretap, confronted Sandusky to his face, interrogated him about the details of showering with her son, grilled him about the effect he had on her son, and rebuked him, telling him never to shower with another boy again.”

What’s the difference between these cases?

Love.
