After Spotlight became a discussion point for our circle of founders, a couple of us were charged with sending a thank-you to the Spotlight team at the Boston Globe. It included our Special Edition on the Prevention of Child Abuse with its Round Table discussing Spotlight and also this passage:
Our group wished to express its gratitude to you and the Spotlight investigative team for your work on behalf of survivors of clergy abuse. If we can tell our story, we have a chance to heal – you and your team helped each of us, and so many more, in a variety of ways.
We received from Walter V. Robinson, Editor At Large, a most kind and warm, simple note:
“Thank you very much… for such a heartfelt letter. It means much more to us than Hollywood hoopla.”
