I was shocked when I heard CNN's Don Lemon say that. He said "I have never admitted this on TV, I'm a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me."
The three people invited didn't know how to react, it was a shocking confession and a brave move by Don Lemon. I'm sure this confession in CNN will help him deal with the issue, but I feel he's over it. After all, many years have passed.

If anyone has ever been a victim of abuse, they realize that what Lemon said wasn't planned. It is all about the moment. Something in your past triggers a moment that happened years prior in your personal situation.

Don Lemon tweeted about the sudden revelation later, writing, "I had no idea I'd say that on national tv. It just came out. Sadly, it's the truth for so many young men."

I admire Don Lemon for having the guts to do such a courageous thing.
