SIAP - search of HF didn't pull up anything Boy Scouts of America files for bankruptcy. Hundreds of sexual abuse lawsuits are now on hold - CNN I'm not going to lie, I almost threw up my morning coffee after reading this. I knew there was trouble but I had no idea it was this bad : I was an ADD poster child with low self esteem as a kid, I only made it to Wolf I think, but as a boy without a present male role model the scouts filled a void in my life for little while. I remember falling behind very early to the other kids who had dads / two parent households who could help them work through their projects and advance. I'd have been completely susceptible to a predator in a mentor role and probably not seen it coming ; I wanted to be a part of something and learn 'guy things' so badly. I shudder when I think about that. I don't know why this article has hit me so hard. The institutions are failing.
