Product description

The shocking, true-life story of one child's life growing up in the 1950's when certain subjects were strictly taboo and self-emotional pain was buried deep within the soul. In what were supposed to be the wonder years, one lone adolescent's greatest horrors and fears are brought to life by routine abuse, a domineering parent and a society not yet ready to tolerate diversity and change. This is the story of one person's journey, struggle, triumph's and ultimate destiny. A meager child grows into maturity sooner than most people and is left to deal with the consequences of the body the adult is now trapped in. Society groomed the child to think, believe and feel the "right and accepted" way. But what is anyone to do when that path leads to ultimate demise and doom? The story of this anguished, vexed and perplexed soul takes twists and turns that are as hellish as the true nightmare that this book was born out of. And sixty-five years after the birth, you'll be in awe to discover where and what this persons life is like today. Time and testimony have provided various outcomes for many people like the author. Many individuals that have gone before didn't make it anywhere near as far. The demons within the tormented souls of these human beings, at times, have destroyed people entirely either by their own hand or by the hands of others. Daily existence for people in the authors circumstance usually tends to become an unforgiving struggle; a battle to survive not only physically, but mentally, spiritually and emotionally. In the years since 2000, things have progressed and changed, yet ever so slowly. Acceptance, patience and understanding of people born into situations like the author was are present in today's society at mostly trace amounts it seems. Actions have always and will forever speak louder than words. But the roars and screams of hate and indignity of the 1950's are merely muffled in the 21st century. Time has not changed the names or hateful dialect though. Hurtful rhetoric is still just as painful whether it be from a careless whisper or that of a fool yelling at you from just 5 feet away. There are people in this world that must hear this story. Every part of this book tells the history of one person who needlessly suffered. Every chapter of this book defines the current life of thousand's of people in today's world. For all the lonely people, no matter where they are in the world, solace, comfort, understanding, peace and rest can be found within these pages. Stop and think to yourself. Reach deep into your soul and mind. Ask yourself..."Am I going through these things? Is someone I know enduring a life like this?" This story will change your life forever. You won't be the same after reading it. Take your time and absorb the words. Share what you know and act upon what good you can make happen in a world that is forever changing around you. Just remember the dignity and respect the author has fought so valiantly for, everyone has the same right to. The path has become easier because the author has already traveled it. This book is an excellent map of the same path the author ventured down. It is the same road that so many lost souls travel today. While the exact details may not be applicable to every individual, the principles of life, love and learning are the same for everyone.
