"I cry in my heart because I can't cry out loud"
...Some of us have turned 18, and are now "free", although nightmares
and painful memories will haunt us for many years, maybe forever. Some of us still have siblings in the clutches of our abusers.
We are kids from all over the country who have been beaten, molested, raped, sodomized, mentally battered, isolated, terrorized,
and shamed by our controlling, battering parents.
Some of us kids are not able to speak out yet, because we are still stuck with our abusers and we are
too afraid of how they, and the courts, will retaliate against us and our protective parents if we speak out
