What an uncaring authority
by: Francine

Mary, those so-called authorities were extremely uncaring! Shame on them for dropping the ball! They let you down and they "willingly" let you down criminally! They should've seen the red flags of abuse! I'm so sorry that they willingly took your parents' side over yours and I can relate, again...I knew that, even as a little girl, everyone that knew my family "loved" them and would never take my side. For instance, my parents really loved my brother and refused to take my side whenever I tell them what he does to me. I really feel you.
