A few words
Despite current circumstances, the truth of which will most likely emerge in weeks to come, I am still proud to be a Nittany Lion. While I don't condone the acts of the involved parties or the rioting that has ensued, I feel for JoePa, Graham Spanier, and all the students & alumni as much as I do for the victims of this terrible situation. Maybe you see my side. Maybe you share my Nittany Lion pride, but I'm sure many of you don't understand. Generally, we don't try to explain. Unless you are a Buckeye, Fighting Irish, or Wolverine you probably don't get how an institution embeds itself in a student's life and remains for a lifetime. And that is fine, you don't have to understand, but some of us do. I do.
