stand up anyway
"1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016... these were the years we spoke up about Larry Nassar's abuse. All those years we were told, 'you are wrong, you misunderstood, he's a doctor, it's okay, don't worry, we've got it covered, be careful, there are risks involved'. The intention? To silence us in favor of money, medals, and reputation. But we persisted and finally someone listened and believed us."
"All we needed was one adult to have the integrity to stand between us and Larry Nassar. If just one adult had listened, believed, and acted, the people standing before you on this stage would have never met him."
"We may have suffered alone, but we will survive together."
