    Neighbor Watched

    One day a neighbor watched me, six years old, get beat with a belt. The neighbor objected to how hard I had been hit and left. She never returned but I heard that she said she could not do anything, but she could not watch. You could have done something. A telephone call would...

    Someone Should've Interviened

    I've Moved On Dont Worry But A Part Of Me Still Wishes

    I know that person is supposed to be your parent, but sometimes they are the worst. I thought the Brady Bunch was mocking me and my pain. I was told that if God loved me he would save me instead of sitting up there laughing. I know that is not true of course but there is still a...

    If They Knew What They Did Because They Didn't Do Anything Would They Care?

    I just wanted to know I was worth the trouble to be saved. CPS treated it like a joke! The few times cps came to the house they would stand outside and talk to my abuser and take her word as gold every time. Only once did they talk to one of us kids. The report had been made for...

    I know I am still a kid but so much has gone on that it doesn't even matter. If someone saved me I feel that I would be different. Maybe all the things that happened, wouldn't. Maybe if it all just stopped right there. It all started with one little battery. My dad slipped on it...

    I wish my father had gotten arrested. I wish that I had been fed. I wish I had been strong enough to kill my step mother. Most of all I wish somebody had saved me. I was trapped and barely fed and now I have PTSD. It's hard to find a boyfriend willing to stay through flashbacks...

    Someone Should Just Intervene..

    When people knowww already that there is something going on. I don't think I should've had to save myself, I don't think children should have to explicitly inform someone in authority, when others already know from seeing the obvious signs. Children feel too scared to tell...

    Let Down

    What hurts me so much is that I told people in the words of a child, what was going on, and no one did anything, or did not do enough to put a stop to it all.  Then I read my school reports not so long ago, and all the signs were there, how I'd become introvert, sullen...
