Today child abuse has reached epidemic proportions. The factors are many. Social, economic, ignorance, etc. and it cuts across all social classes. Its victims are vulnerable children who are usually too young and frightened to protect themselves. Sadly, to hear of child abuse today is all too common. This book will help people to appreciate that they are not alone. There are many survivors of childhood abuse. I am one of them. For many years now, I have watched people on television talk shows tell of their harrowing experience of being either physically or sexually abused by family members or close family friends. When sexual abuse occurs within the family it is usually shrouded in secrecy. It is a terrible secret that is painful and shameful. The burden of it weighs the child down into despair. The two women that have stood out in my mind are Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelou. Both suffered sexual abuse at the hands of a family member or family friend. At the risk of being ostracized by their families they courageously told the world of their terrible "secret." The common thread that I share with Oprah, Maya and many others, is one that has woven a quilt that covers a wide range of survivors of this insidious crime. It was three years ago that I revealed my terrible secret. It was the first time that I've ever dared to reveal it and even then I could not say the words to describe it. I wrote it, in what I called my "Therapeutic Writings". The ghosts of the past were haunting me. I confided in a friend who is also a survivor of childhood abuse, that a troubling past bothered me and that I was thinking about putting it in writing. She agreed saying it would help me to confront issues that needed to be resolved. The courage and strength it took to write the first words about the "secret" could only come from God. As I starred at the words that had condemned me most of my life, I began to hyperventilate. I felt as though some evil force had been exorcised from deep within

About the Author:

She began writing as early as six years old,although the only person of interest was herself.Her writings were a desperate plea for help andcould be found in concealed places where she found solitude from the abuses offamily members.She'd always hoped that someone would find herwritings of being hurt and afraid.┐Vulnerable and too young to find protection for herself, she alwayshoped to be rescued from a nightmare existence.Born to impoverished parents in a small southerntown, she learned early in life the instinct to survive under the most tryingcircumstances.To write about a life that many times left herbewildered gave her hope that some day the writings would be discovered.She is able to capture the essence of a young girldeprived of the most basic quality of natural affection that can be shown byanimals for their offspring.She vividly captures emotions; determination andcourage that will be felt by anyone who reads about the glass wall that helpedsaved her life.
