I just read online that Chris Brown, 19, has issued a statement apologizing to Rihanna, 20, for assaulting her. He also said he is seeking counseling from his mother and pastor. That is a good start. Now I want to see him back that up with action. And he needs professional help. I don’t think his mother and his pastor are enough. I am very serious about this. It’s for his own good, really, and that of the women he will meet in his future. He needs professional help to deal effectively with this illness he has. Because it is an illness. And it needs to be treated.
