My kids have known grief. They've no doubt felt anger, too. But my kids have never felt that fear I felt, they've never fled a room in terror like I did. They've never had to face an adult who has just violated their rights and listened to a pathetic, hollow apology.

Cesareo Pelaez was a psychology professor at Salem State College (now Salem State University). I met him in the 1980s when I was a psychology major at Salem State. Placed seemingly randomly under the wing of such a unique individual, my life was and remains forever changed.
