    admission of guilt like a scarlet letter Sam I understand that especially when things like this are done for political reasons But here s the other side What if every time you see a blue ribbon you think about the fact that 1 in 8 of your female friends sisters aunts neighbors etc has experienced child sexual abuse in some way And 1 in 10 of your male friends What if the blue ribbons meant that and what if I really took the time to think about that and let that influence my life What might happen Because when you sit together at a Thanksgiving meal and you ve got 10 or 12 people somebody has had that experience And very likely the abuser is somebody who may also be sitting at that table So when we take the blue ribbons what if we used that as a lens Put the blue ribbon lens on and look at the world Whether you agree or disagree with Sam and Laurie and with one another the most encouraging part of all this is that the conversation continues Since the stream ended at 9 30 p m last night viewers are still posting opinions and ideas on this blog to Twitter with the hash tag pennstater to our Facebook page and via email at pennstaterletters psu edu As always we welcome your questions comments and feedback If you missed last night s livestream you can watch the video in its entirety here Unfortunately the conversation in the chat box to the right of the screen is no longer available Mary Murphy associate editor Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading September 13 2012 at 2 20 pm Mary Murphy 3 comments Emerging from the Storm Join Our Conversation with Sam Richards and Laurie Mulvey I m probably understating when I say that being a Penn Stater hasn t been easy for the past nine months So much sadness so much anger so much confusion I haven t spoken with anyone who doesn t want things here to be better but what better looks like and how to make that happen is still up in the air One of the things we ve got to do is talk Which is why we re calling on sociology instructors Sam Richards and Laurie Mulvey 94g whose SOC 119 Race and Ethnic Relations class is among the most popular on campus and whose World in Conversation program is devoted to fostering dialogue about difficult topics to guide us We d like you to join us for a live online event Emerging from the Storm Continuing the Conversation from 8 to 9 30 p m EDT Wednesday Sept 12 You ll be able to watch and hear Sam and Laurie as they grapple with the issues and questions and you ll be able to participate too by logging in with your Facebook or Twitter accounts or simply by typing in the

    of punishment That s a big thing to say but what if we stepped outside the box We if we said Let me see if there s a higher road here It s really easy to beat the drums and yell and scream but what might be an alternative path Fighting the sanctions what does that look like Is that an honorable approach How can we move forward when we feel the truth isn t out yet Laurie We all want the truth and the reality is we as human beings don t often get to live in the truth We don t get the opportunity where other people see us for who we are The intention here is to seek the truth and follow it out as long as it takes but in the meantime recognize that we don t have the privilege of being seen how Penn State wants to be seen We join humanity in that and we as people of Penn State aren t unique in that It s humbling Sam Penn State has been judged very harshly by the court of public opinion and when the court of public opinion comes down in such a powerful way that becomes the truth for millions and millions of people So what do we do with the fact that that is now the truth We may say wait a minute that s not the truth But we have to find a way to live within that because that s the truth to many people I can sit here and be angry about that and sometimes I am But is there another way around that How might I grow How might I expand I hate that Penn State has adopted the blue ribbons for child abuse awareness because it feels like an admission of guilt like a scarlet letter Sam I understand that especially when things like this are done for political reasons But here s the other side What if every time you see a blue ribbon you think about the fact that 1 in 8 of your female friends sisters aunts neighbors etc has experienced child sexual abuse in some way And 1 in 10 of your male friends What if the blue ribbons meant that and what if I really took the time to think about that and let that influence my life What might happen Because when you sit together at a Thanksgiving meal and you ve got 10 or 12 people somebody has had that experience And very likely the abuser is somebody who may also be sitting at that table So when we take the blue ribbons what if we used that as a lens Put the blue ribbon lens on and look at the world Whether you agree or disagree with Sam and Laurie and with one another the most encouraging part of all this is that the conversation continues Since the stream ended at 9 30 p m last night viewers
