Shame By K L


The people involved in working with RC on this series did so willingly and facts were verified. The articles are not "his stories", he is not "hurting the victims", and he is not threatening our dignity by giving details of specific crimes and PCV's lives. PCVs are telling their stories (here and on peacecorpsonline) willingly alone and with assistance of DDN to our supervisors, grandparents, friends, co-workers, professors, classmates, parents, brothers and sisters without shame! There is nothing wrong with exposing the truth, meeting problems headon, and expressing anger and outrage in response to needed change. You should be ashamed rather than implying by your posting that DDN and PCVs involved in the series should feel shame. Dignity is not threatened. when the truth is told. See comments by many volunteers who feel the same at peacecorpsonline.
