The first book on New Bethany presents differing accounts of abuse, torture, and the rape of children, now adults. We do not forget such traumatic events and for many, these experiences are burned into our hearts and souls. This is not one person giving an account of their experiences, this is a compilation of experiences. Since few knew whether our friends were going to submit their stories, we did not collaborate with one another. Children can be silenced and when the children grow up, the adults will remember the good, bad, ugly, and indifferent. Our goal is to prevent parents from sending children to nothing more than labor camps, where physical and sexual abuse was rampant, and Mack Ford deserves nothing less than imprisonment.
A wonderful book that needed publishing, because the stories needed to be told and open the eyes of Fundamentalist Extremists that support homes that repeatedly abuse, and when about to come under fire, move and rename their group homes repeatedly. Someone needs to hear the victims, and work to prevent further victims.
I can say before I even read this book ALL the accounts are the ABOSOLUTE TRUTH of US who participated in compiling this book. Anyone who would doubt the reality of each and every account or question the truth about is simply showing thier own ignorance. There all too many witnesses to deny the horiific truth and we stand as one voice. This book is just the tip of the iceburg of how girls and boys were mentally, physically, emotionally, molested and raped at the hands of adult staff members of New Bethany. Some Abuser's are named some not. But they know who they are. I pray that the children hurt so severly by them will be able to grow strength to completly expose them all. May justice and truth be heard. Thank you Roger and Rhonda, New Bethany Surivors for all your hard work to get this published, this is a pivital turing point for us to finally come forward to help bring awareness as The Whitehouse Boys and SIA - Survivors of Insitutional Abuse. I am honorded to be a part of this,... More > Together We Are One Voice.
