Please watch this testimonial video of CBS correspondent Lara Logan. Four months ago she was brutally sexually assaulted by a crowd of men in Egypt.
Her strength, frankness, composure and understanding reaction is amazing. Of course we are only seeing a few minutes of her reading her account of the horrid event, but I DO hope she gets the appropriate counseling, and has found or will find a healthy outlet for the rage she is entitled to. It sounds like she still loves Egypt, the culture and the people keeps in perspective that there are a few bad individuals everywhere. Bless her heart for not joining the rampant Islam-bashing we see so much of today here in the west.
"On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a 60 MINUTES story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.
In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning."
I care that what I believe is true. Evidence determines what is believable so I don't believe things for which there is insufficient evidence such as unicorns or Santa Claus. For the same reason I'm an atheist. If you ask, "But, what about questions X, Y & Z? My answer is, many questions are just unanswerable, and I'm okay with unanswered questions. Actually the answer is, "Nobody knows."
