Judge Rosemarie Aquilina’s message to dozens of female victims who were molested by official USA Gymnastics doctor during sentencing hearing in Michigan: “You are not broken. You are strong. You are the voice of so many people. … You are not a victim any longer. Do not let it define you. Go out and do great things in the world. “I want you to know that you matter. You have a name to me. You are worthy. All these people are here in support of you. You are a worthwhile human being. You need to feel worthy.”
You need to see and hear just some of the women testify against Larry Nassar
We owe admiration and gratitude to the brave women who came forward to relate and relive their personal experiences with a serial molester who acted under the cover of official sanction.
