Florence Holway

Last night, I caught a documentary on HBO called A Rape in a Small Town. The story is about a 75 year old woman who was raped by a 25 year old man. Twelve years later, she finds herself in court fighting against his release. You can read more about the story by clicking here.

My goodness, was this documentary a tear-jerker. Florence Holway is a charming and very strong woman. You can’t help but have an absolute respect and adoration for her. Last night, instead of waiting it out to find out who won The Biggest Loser (I sort of wanted Gary to win, I won’t deny) I found myself cheering for Florence. What a heartbreaking, yet inspirational story.

(I love cable.)
