Wow!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Linda, I am touched to tears by your beautiful heartfelt tribute. I'm blessed to have such caring loving people like you in my life. We've never met, but I feel as though we are bonded, not only as abuse survivors, but that we are bonded as friends. With all my heart, I thank you for your moving prose. You are both gifted and a gift to me.

Yes I join with you Linda, your words are gift to a very special caring, professional, woman/human being. Her stewardship as webmaster of her sight gives great solace and trust to all her visitors. She deserves your heartfelt words of recognition. Darlene is known to us as she too has told her story of abuse helping me and her many visitors to treat with love and respect her well chosen words to each of her visitors. Knowing she too went through the pain of abuse makes her words real and personal. Empathy is one very sure feeling that is her gift in pletiful to each of us. who trust telling our story to her and to her many visitors in safety and with confidence knowing they are shared with peoplewho love and care as real human life situations we've come through having been abused by not so nice people who should have loved us. The saddest thing for me to understand is that abuse happens and done by who are family/friend/guardian of our innocence as children. Mans/womans inhumanity to another sadly will not go away. That is why Darlene has created a site so that we can be family to each other in our love and understanding of the pain being abused caused us. There's life for each of us who have acknowledged and told our story. Think positive, act positive and be positive. Knowing I'M SPECIAL AND I LOVE ME SO THAT I CAN TRULY LOVE THOSE WHO SHOW ME REAL LOVE NOW IN MY LIFE. THANK YOU LINDA. THANK YOU DARLENE.
