I don't know many people who haven't heard of the recent news about Lara Logan, a news reporter who was beaten and sexually assaulted while in Egypt after their president stepped down. I don't have much to say on the topic other than I send my prayers to her and am proud of her for speaking out. Speaking out when you're another face in the crowd is one thing, but speaking out when it is going to be covered by the news and spread around the world is another thing. It takes a lot of courage and strength, more than I can imagine. I also cannot believe the amount of ignorant remarks that have been given. The news has covered different reactions from those whose words also got spread around the world that she deserved it and that she should have seen it coming. How could she not, after all she is pretty and was in a heated climate. I hate that ignorance such as this still exists, but I cannot stand that it is so strongly believed that one would go about posting it to the entire world. I can only be happy that Nir Rosen stepped down as a NYU fellow.
And to end this short post, I'll leave words by Mikki Halpin "Other people who have "asked for it" on the job: miners who are trapped, construction workers who fall, astronauts."
