You have much more in life than what you've lost, says Lara Logan

New York, Mon, 23 Jan 2012 ANI

New York, Jan 23 (ANI): Lara Logan, who was assaulted by a mob of protesters in Tahrir Square, has said that, "life is not about dwelling on the bad."


Last Feb. 11, while covering the Egyptian uprisings in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the 40-year-old TV and radio journalist was surrounded by an angry mob of men and ripped away from her CBS crew.


She was viciously stripped and suffered a "brutal and sustained" sexual assault.


"I didn't even know that they were beating me with flagpoles and sticks and things, because the sexual assault was all I could feel, their hands raping me over and over and over again," New York Daily News quoted her as telling CBS News last spring.


She said that her assaulters tried to rip off chunks of her scalp.


"I was in no doubt in my mind that I was in the process of dying," she said.


Logan was saved when a woman dressed all in black "put her arms around me," and other women closed ranks around her until soldiers arrived.


Since then, the mother-of-two told the News, she's been putting her life back together with the help of family and friends.


"Your family is critical.


"You can't do it alone. My husband is a great support. He understands, he doesn't hide from it, from what happened. He knows everything, more than anyone, what they did to me," she said.


Although it is not a regular topic of conversation in the house, she admitted that the issue does emerge from time to time.


"My children are my life. They're so spectacular. They're also so young," she said.


Without knowing it, little Lola, who will be 2 in March, and Joseph, 3, helped her get through the aftermath of the attacks.


"When I'm lying there, waiting for my daughter to go to sleep, I have time to think about things. Those can be dark moments. You ranger through, you have to.


"You're aware of how much you have and it's so much more than what you've lost. You have a responsibility. Life is not about dwelling on the bad," she added. (ANI)
