Saw today where former Sooner LB Eric Thunander was arrested for lewd acts with a child. It's a sad day. I'm terribly saddened for the girl and her family, and I pray that she can somehow overcome the emotional and physical scars.
Thunander wrote a book last year, Silent Thunder, that made me cry several times. Thunander is deaf, battles depression, was sexually abused as a child himself, and just grew up in an absolutely horribe environment.
Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that he was able to stop the cycle. At least not yet.
Eric, our prayers are with you as well.
