To say that I am heartbroken is an understatement.

He was truthful and sincere in his efforts.

The part of the film that got me was the adult son of Kristin High bursting into sobs of grief while his aunt was giving a speech about his mom.

Do watch the film if you have a chance.
I remember the night it happened. I'm in San Francisco. I got word the same night it happened via the greek grapevine.

I never knew one of those girls who died in the ocean had a child. How absolutely horrific. I also choked up when he was crying at the ceremony.

I hope this wakes people up! This show isnít even about the ďgray areasĒ of hazing- this is straight up stuff that can kill or seriously injure people. It has no place in any law abiding, values promoting organization.

Thoughful programs such as this one make me glad I subscribe to public television.

Seriously, how hard is it to not do something that will cause legal problems or harm someone?

Bumping cause I just saw this again.

FYI they do mention non Greek hazing, specifically the marching band death at that school in Florida. That was tough to watch, but Iím glad they included it. People always ask why people donít just walk away when itís Greek life, but what about a case like that, or athletics, where your main purpose in college and/or funding is tied up in that membership?

He focused pretty heavily on the NPHC process, which, according to Byron Hurt was less about binge drinking and more about activities that defined oneís role as a young man entering manhood. Iíve heard this brought up on GC before- that often men are seeking a ďprocessĒ more so than women- kind of a baptism by fire. It was interesting to hear the men speak on their process and what it means to become a man and how youíd accomplish that without hazing.

Probably what hit home to me was when he said that if people had to be really honest, theyíd have to face the fact that they did a lot of that stuff for nothing- that it didnít really matter in the end. Thatís a tough pill to swallow in life, but I can definitely relate. Some of the hardest things Iíve fought for in the military and professionally, years later, looking back, Iíve felt that same wayÖeven though I would have literally given anything for it in that moment.

Itís probably the most gut level honest thing Iíve ever watched on hazing. Itís really, truly well done.
