Thanks go to Anonymous

To the editor:

In am writing on behalf of my family and friends to send a personal thank-you to Anonymous. During the past three weeks or so, we have been following the local alleged rape case. Sadly, we have been shocked as more and more information is being revealed. In the end, however, we realize that decisions will be left to our court system and we pray there will be justice for all.

For anyone who feels that the beloved Steubenville Big Red football team, its coach or any individuals were attacked by Anonymous, keep in mind there is only one victim here. Although her voice was silenced by her alleged attackers, Anonymous stepped up and spoke for her. As time passed, thousands of others followed suit. Most of these people, I am sure, she doesn’t even know. They simple want justice.

Let this be a wake-up call for all. Years from now, it won’t matter if we had a local state championship football team, but it will matter that our young people stepped up and did what was right when given the chance.

My hope is to someday read a letter to the editor from Jane Doe letting the people of this area know that she has done great things in her life, in spite of this dreadful nightmare. In closing, none of us is anonymous, we are all well-known to a higher power that will hand down final judgment to each and every one of us.
