I wrote even though I will be ignored. I wrote even though there will be no reply. I wrote even though the college will distort it or lie about it. Why write? To mark this important place on the road to justice. Simply that.
I told the Board and Fr. Boroughs about the things the college general counsel got wrong. I told them about the purpose for the ten year vigil that begins soon and why it is necessary. I told them I would begin a Hunger Strike for Justice in response to Fr. Boroughs’ retaliation. And I shared a proposal to resolve this and invited a response.
I have no illusions after eleven years of being ignored when I reported breaches of confidentiality. The College does not care, does not value confidentiality promises. That is why I believe the vigil will last ten years. Or more.
