What happened was heart-breaking, especially for the victims. We care about sports, it’s important to us. But our number one priority has to be protecting our kids. Every institution has to examine how they operate and every individual has to take responsibility for making sure that our kids are protected. You can’t just rely on Bureaucracy and systems in these kinds of situations. People have to step forward and tap into their core decency. When anyone is being mistreated, all of us have to step up. We don’t leave it to somebody else to take responsibility. -President Obama regarding the Penn State sex scandal-
