Jerry Sandusky Found Guilty, Now Healing Begins

Yesterday evening, Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State assistant football coach, was convicted on 45 of 48 counts related to sexual abuse of boys. While celebrating this end result, we should also be praying for the victims and their families. That they may now have closure and that their wounds may begin to heal.

We should also pray for the Sandusky family. I'm certain that having to live through this process has been one of the most painful things they have ever had to endure. (Let's not forget after the conclusion of the trial, it was revealed that the Sandusky's adopted son had also been a victim of his father's.)

Finally, let's pray for Jerry Sandusky. Now that he has been found guilty he will, more than likely, be spending the last of his days on Earth in jail. Let's pray he can/will repent for the heinous sins he has committed and will somehow be able to find peace within.

  1. I didn't realize his own child was a victim. That's really sad. How does one find peace with that? An apology certainly won't make it right. I guess just knowing that he feels remorse for what he did would have to suffice.
