Too Young...Too Late

Yeardly Love was a student at the University of Virginia. She was a varsity lacrosse player, and loved by many of her fellow teammates and students. This is just one case of how silence can end up tragic. It was known that Yeardly's ex-boyfriend, George Huguely (also a varsity lacrosse player at UVA) had been very abusive to her in the past. Could this have all been avoided if someone had come forward with the abusive relationship Yeardly and George had? Maybe, but we'll never know.

On May 6, 2010, 1,500 students lit up the lawn on UVA's campus to remember the life of Yeardly.
