Seize the moment


« on: July 07, 2009, 11:33:24 AM »

A girl (Betrayed) has just joined ESMB who has recently left the SO.  Something that helped her decide to leave and be with her family was the Sydney protestors outside the SO buiding in Glebe St.  She remembers me being there shouting through the megaphone telling parents that their children deserved better, and it hit home.  I was on chat with her last night on the forums and she is well-and-truly out for good and SOOOOOO unbelievably happy.

It's such a boost to know that we actually are doing something out there even if it sometimes seems that we aren't.  The scene is ANZO is pretty much all going down the gurgler with people leaving and then speaking out.

You can read her story here: http://forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?t=12209

It's pretty grim.

Awesome! Did that get cross posted to WWP? I hope so.

Makes it all worthwhile if you get one unhappy soul out :)

Oh, I'll do that nao.  She's one happy chickie ... the story from her Dad trying to get her out is also very sad.  He was actually a scn and realised that he wasn't being allowed to see his daughter and that she was trying to leave but was being stopped.  I'll put both threads across.  Thanks
