I believe you...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Oh Jennifer, such disturbing memories for you, such betrayal. The disgusting pervert in the pool doesn't deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us. The physical and emotional pain you must have felt, hanging onto that ladder, praying for it to stop, praying even harder that someone would see and stop it, realizing that you were so alone....

I relate only too well your desperate need to rescue that helpless boy from harm that you yourself had lived and relived. The haunting screams echoing and etched in your brain, the pure adrenalin, the shaking, the solitary frantic focus, the rage, so much rage, rage so deep, so all-encompassing it feels as though you will explode. Jennifer, do you know what a beautiful, wonderful, caring and loving person you really are? I do.
