The Bird of Peace is Flying Over

What a strange few weeks it has been, watching grown (maybe I should say overgrown) men sit in a semi-circle facing camera left or right as they somehow try to discuss colleagues beating women and children. None defending, but almost all finding some thread of excuse "We don't know what happened between them" or "My parents whooped me and I'm a better person for it" or "Sometimes we need to wait and find out the circumstances" (that was my favorite).

Maybe I'm too sensitive because I'm a mother now, especially because I'm a mother of a daughter. But I would tell those guys the same thing I will one day tell my daughter. Don't raise your hand to someone in anger. PERIOD.
