I know that almost every subject has been addressed on this site, and I don't have much more to say than what has already been said. I just think that it is so sad to see how so many lives have been wasted, so many young people with their whole lives ahead of them marked.
I read an article the other day from an outsider who said that he'd tell his girlfriend to just talk about her experiences without mentioning the group. He said that a lot of people outside the Family have been through a lot too. This is of course true, but what so many people don't realize is that we are not talking about experiences, we are talking about a way of life, a whole culture if you want to put it that way.
My friends are from many countries and they all have their cultures, their way of looking at things which totally condition their life and life-style. How much more those of us who have been tortured and forced to live in a way that we didn't even agree with. A lie, that is our past and that is our foundation.
