Boy Scout abuse victim Tom Stewart poses Aug. 16, 2012, for a photo with his old Scout uniform outside the Boy Scout Camp Kilworth in Federal Way, Wash. Former Boy Scouts still struggle to cope with the abuse they suffered at the hands of Scout leaders, and those who are willing to tell the stories of their abuse have come to feel abandoned by an organization considered a pillar of American society. "There are so many victims who have suffered in silence. Marriages and relationships with their kids have suffered," said Stewart, a 46-year-old engineer for Boeing. (Associated Press)
