Blog: A Book to Help Heal Victims into Survivors

Robin Lynn Brooks, author of Blooming of the Lotus

“I know you’ve seen the headlines about the case of the Stanford University swimmer who violently attacked a woman and raped her and then was only sentenced to six months in county jail (plus probation and a lifetime on the sexual offender database). Maybe you’ve read details about the case, or read the victim’s powerful emotional statement. Maybe you’ve noticed that every time the story is in the news the photo attached to the story is of the accused wearing a respectable collared-shirt and suit, and not his official mug shot. Stories also mention his accomplished swimming times and Olympic hopefulness. In the media he was coddled because of his potential.”
