-DLC- Posted December 4, 2016 Share Posted December 4, 2016 No matter what we've endured in this life, we have been gifted with wonderful opportunities to seek help and support. Unlike times of the past when things were swept into closets as secrets, there is an awareness out there. So there IS no excuse to go public with a horrid story of abuse in a book and interviews if you haven't sought out some sort of help during the process or are using it as part of that. I get it, can be very empowering to spill it and put it out in the open. But to go there - to speak on the very tragic, serious issue of child abuse then use it to trash talk? Hmmm, not ok. Stay on track. Is this book about the horrible abuse he suffered or The Canucks and all of Vancouver suck? Don't pave the way in by using your story, then tell another one that is unrelated (Leafs vs Cancks). Sure, journalists will lead you there, but take the high road? We have choices in this life...we can choose to wallow in pain, maybe even profit from it if people will listen...but that's exploiting it. Children in the same position deserve better. The Leafs are awesome and the Canucks and Vancouver suck shouldn't be a chapter in this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
