In reading Trent Yoder’s letter to the editor, I am disturbed by a few things.

His “decision” not to volunteer anymore was not his decision. It was decided for him, and I am pretty sure he would have never been asked to again.

I have a problem with this whole thing because Yoder refuses to admit there are 22 victims. Yes, I believe them.

Also in a previous statement, he said how humiliating it was in prison and with the testing. What about the humiliation these girls felt?

Teenage girls are fragile. Their sense of self and their ability to trust last a lifetime. Believe me, I know.

Yoder’s refusal to take responsibility for all he did tells me what kind of person he is. He should be ashamed but he is not really.

He just keeps pushing his “poor me” attitude. I, for one, have not a shred of sympathy for him. I can only think of the damage he has done.
