Respect

Today, my campus organized an amazing rally in light of the second sexual assault case reported in two weeks. The Facebook event went up late last night. We were encouraged to wear pink.

It was amazing. Everyone that came up to speak did a stand-up job. I’m still processing everything. I walked away from the rally feeling like we need to continue this dialogue. We have to. It will. This rally was largely student-organized, so this shows that students can and will make things happen.

I’ll echo the statement that I heard over and over again at the rally: I am so proud to be a Gael right now.
