Survivors ofSexual Abuse speak out about rape
Our original cover was going to portray senior,  Joe Schorse, in a very Troy Bolton-esque light. However, while developing this issue, it became clear that there were more serious undertones, in particular Tanvi Kumar’s story “The Rape Joke. We would like to thank senior, Marissa Wustrack,
 who is no way afliated with the story, for giving
up several hours to model for Cardinal Columns.
At first, we conducted a photoshoot with Marissa laying lifeless in the middle of boxes. We were go-ing to photoshop the words “fragile” on the boxes. However, we did not agree with the notion that survivors of sexual assault are fragile. We chose to go with a simpler image. New Feature Designer Gabi Padovano did a great job getting all the shots we needed.
Stronger Than Ever
 Mrs. Young’s Battle with cancer
hen you walk into the Student Services of-
ce you feel calm and
as if you’re in an incredibly safe place. The counselors and staff are there to help you, and they all have big smiles on their fac-es and greet you as soon as you  walk into the door. Mrs. Young is no exception. The very instant you walk
into her ofce she asks you how
you’re doing and makes you feel  welcome. You’re given a posi-tive attitude while you’re with her, whether it be to talk about something that’s bothering you or change your schedule around. Mrs. Young is helpful, trust- worthy and willing to do practi-cally anything for her students to make them feel more comfortable here at Fond du Lac High School. She’s always loved  working with students, and it really shows when she strives to see 100 percent of her students during the year even when she’s in and out of
her ofce due to her cancer.
 “Mrs. Young’s diagnosis of cancer has not affected her  work,” said councilor Mrs. Burns-Johnson. “She has main-tained the same level of energy and professionalism as be-fore her diagnosis. Of course there are times when she is not feeling well but it never affects her work. She pushes through - plain and simple. Besides working, Mrs.  Young enjoys being outside, being healthy, spending time  with her friends and family and teaching for Concordia Uni- versity in a school counseling program. She highly dislikes the cold, so while it’s warm she takes advantage of the nice  weather and runs for fun and has done one relay race so far. When Mrs. Young found out she had cancer, it was a surprise. “I don’t smoke, I always try to be healthy,” Mrs. Young said. “A good thing is that I never asked why. If I did it’d be like I wished somebody else had it. Like ‘why me and not some-body else’.” Even though she has cancer, Mrs. Young feels fortu-nate because throughout a day-to-day basis it has made her stronger, increased her Christian faith, and she doesn’t want people to feel sor-ry for her. Some students even say they don’t want to bother her with their problems because she has so much to deal with. “We all have problems to overcome, mine are just more  visible,said Mrs. Young. “And I will overcome it.” At the beginning, Mrs.  Young didn’t always want to be a counselor. She went to the University of Iowa to become an English teacher, which she only taught for a year. That’s  when she realized that students had a lot of things to talk about, but she didn’t have the time  when she wanted to help them. She went back to school to be able to help students and moved to Chicago until 2007 be-fore moving to Milwaukee and teaching for two years. In 2008 she moved to Fond du Lac and has worked at Fond du Lac High
School for the past ve years.
 “It’s an exciting career; you can make it what you want it to be.” Mrs. Young said. “If you want to have a huge effect, you can do that. Just be ready to hit the ground running.” “Ms. Fictum Young is an in-spiration!” Mrs. Burns-Johnson said.

As a parent, although not American, I support the article on rape culture, and the editorial independence needed to enable school papers to be able to print more articles like this. I myself am a survivor. We need to speak about the issue of rape in our societies. It's not a dirty little secret!
Elizabeth Hoffmann added this note
I fully support the article on rape I along with 4 other girls was sexally assaulted in high school by a well known sport star figure. We stood up to him, but the stipulations that were put on him to protect us were a joke and not upheld by the school district. My assault happened at school during a volleyball game. It needs to be talked about! not a dirty little secret anymore
