      Thanks so much Tricia. I’m glad you like and approve what I’ve written. You know, this wasn’t meant to be a review but it became one and given how you feel about what I wrote, I feel justified in turning it into one. Thank you for paying me the compliment of displaying this on your website and blog. I can only hope when my story is finally done, I will have spoken to as many as you have and that they will benefit from reading it.

    As a former teacher of Patricia and now a dear friend, I want to say that even though you have never met Patricia in person, you have captured, in your review, her strength of character and beautiful spirit. Reading MY JUSTICE was a horrific shock to me. I knew Patricia but I didn’t KNOW her secret until I read her story. I urge all who have kept their secrets to let them go and begin to heal. There are those of us out here in your past and in your life who do love you and care about you and want you to be whole. I wasn’t there for Trecia when she was a child and needed me but I will be here for her now whenever she needs me. And, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity if she hadn’t ‘opened the door’ for me to come in. So OPEN THE DOOR and COME OUT FROM UNDER. There are good people here who will stand by you and validate you.

      Hi Lindyloo

      How very nice of you to stop by, read this and share your knowledge of Patricia with us. And I really appreciate your kind words regarding this post. But what I most appreciate about what you’ve written is your support of what both Tricia and I, and others I’ve met are trying to instill in victims ie.. open the door and come out from under. You are so right: there ARE good people who will stand by you, but they have to know what is happening or has happened. They won’t if you don’t tell them.

      Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.

      You are very welcome. 🙂 I feel that it is helpful for those who are ‘guarding their secrets’ to know the other side…that there are those of us who are here to support and care and protect. I taught school for 33 years. How many other children did I miss helping? How many other children came through my classroom like Trecia and I just didn’t KNOW? These children are good at hiding their secrets. If only I had known. PLEASE TELL!!

      I intend to LindyLoo50 and I am always encouraging members in my group to do the same when they are ready. I too was a teacher. I saw children in pain and on drugs, even counselled some of them. But getting them to tell what had sent them down those paths of self-destruction was near impossible. Today I wonder how many of them were victims of incest and sexual abuse. Bet the number was staggering. Incest: the last taboo. Just came across a saying that sadly sums it up: “The taboo of talking about incest is stronger than the taboo against doing it”.
