On the night of the gang rape in Richmond, California, many people crowded around. The laughed, they jeered, they took videos. Not one of them called for help. Not one of them tried to stop it.
Elizabeth Vargas was at home when heard about the gang rape going on at her school from her brother-in-law. She did not remain silent. She called 911 and reported attack.
This young woman stood up against community ambivalence. She knew the rape was wrong and she didn’t stand by and let it happen. Because of her, the police got to the high school and have six suspects under arrest.
Vargas is a brave woman. And, she makes us all very proud!
