Very powerful, Beth. Thank You.

Thanks for validating my "family of origin" and why I had to leave them all. How can you make a "Dad" out of this. While he was so "busy" with little girls he completely left us without a father figure and a mother who went to "church".
We got left alone to defend for ourselves.
I know can see why I thought I was so "crazy" and now know that my family is just completely dysfunctional. On all levels.
No amount of "laughter" can overcome the effects of living with two very sick and untreated "parents".

Things sure would have been different if they had reacted like you Beth.

I would think at the very least there should have been a REVOLT by the parents of those little girls. No way would I have sat passively by after a verdict like that! Just think if everyone involved demanded "fair and just"? I'd like to hope a different outcome would have been. Thank you for your courage to speak out and enrage at the "unjust".

It makes you wonder what that detective was up to at that time. Or what the people who wanted him to be free were up to. If they can ignore the cases against Ray whose cases do they ignore that is against themselves.
