200 Men

Today, I watched the second part of Oprah’s “200 men show”, where her audience was full of 200 men coming forward with their stories of being molested as a child. One of the reasons Oprah did this show is to have the 200 men represent all of the men in the world who have been molested. Staggering statistics estimate that 1 in 6 men were molested, and many men haven’t been able to come forward with their story to their loved ones.

This has been a moving and emotional education for me and I encourage you to go to Oprah’s website (http://www.oprah.com/showinfo/An-Oprah-Show-Event-200-Men-Who-Were-Molested-Come-Forward-Part-2) and learn more about this show.

Thank you.
