#MeToo...Now What Do We Do?

#MeToo means so many things right now...and, although I empathize in so many ways, I wonder where the #MeToo energy is really coming from.  

As a white male, growing up in the US, I am certain that I have been on every side of #MeToo. I am almost 45 years old, I am sure that I have been violated, and I have violated another, and I am so sorry. I am certain that others have violated and been violated in deeper ways than I have at either end of the spectrum. I share this because I am here to change the game in so many ways!
