“Larry, we are a force and you are nothing.”
6-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman’s voice didn’t quiver as she addressed the man who molested her. Larry Nassar, the demon in human form who worked with the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team for more than two decades, is finally being punished for is crimes.
“I am here to face you, Larry, so you can see I’ve regained my strength… I am no longer a victim. I am a survivor,” Raisman continued.
Nassar used his position as team doctor to prey on the young athletes under his care. He abused them repeatedly, using the gloss of his medical career as a shield against detection. He couldn’t be a rapist, oh no, he was too respectable.
“I didn’t think I would be here today,” said Raisman. “I was scared and nervous. It wasn’t until I listened to the other brave survivors that I realized I needed to be here.”
125 brave young women are going to tell their stories to the court before Nassar is sentenced. The sicko has already complained that listening to their words is torture for him, a complaint the judge instantly dismissed. Nassar caused an incredible amount of pain.
“You never healed me. You took advantage of our passions and our dreams… Imagine feeling like you have no power and no voice. Well you know what Larry, I have my power and my voice, and I will use them,” Raisman said.
“The tables have turned, Larry. We are here. We have our voices, and we are not going anywhere.”
Even if he’s sentenced to life in prison, Nassar is still getting off lightly. He enjoyed his lechery for decades. He ruined multiple little girls. He deserves a far worse punishment than it’s possible to inflict.
“Abusers, your time is up,” Raisman said. “The survivors are here standing tall and we are not going anywhere.”
