Who cares about a child rape victim? Tiger Woods is back!

http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-429547

Post asserts that we need to spend real time looking at the crises that are happening in our community. We are all upset about this 7-year old rape victim and we should be. But what happens tomorrow? We go right back to gawking over Tiger Woods and Sandra Bullock and the White House party crashers who got a reality show. We have to do better. We have to go beyond calling people thugs and doing stories on “no snitch” for a few days and then going back to celebrity gossip. Just because celebrities make more money than us does not mean we have to give them more attention. The media should spend more time analyzing things like how our educational system contributes to this and how we can help parents who are trying to get their kids on the right track. If mainstream media is just going to become tabloid TV, we need to really re-evaluate why we watch and WHAT we watch in the first place.

    Hello this is the student you met at G. W. Fowler High School today on 4-14-10. i listened to every word you said and paid as best attention i could to your speech. i have learned from you, and am thanking you very much for coming to Fowler. You are now one of the very few people i look up to, and not because you have become famous but because you came from such a downed on life and became such an asset to the rest of the world around you. i have had a hard life my self not as hard as one lived by those in Africa, mainly Congo. but i have lived through it all and am planning to go to college for Criminal Justice and Juvenile Justice. i plan to help people in my situation and even in worse as best i can. Your blog that this is commented under is also a common conversation brought up between me and my friends not exactly the 7-year old rape victim but i have to say that i have had some of the same ideas that you stated in your speech today and your latest blog entry. i will keep learning as long as you keep doing what your doing good work Omékongo, sorry but i was unable to find your full name, nor was i going to try to guess how to spell it. have a nice day.
    Sincerely: Cadet Seamen troy Hamlin
