The title for this piece is perfect. Everybody saw but nobody said anything. It was tough to read the piece because of the emotions it invoked. But good writing is supposed to do that. <3

As usual, bitter and gritty--like life.

WOW! The parlance is just great!
I love when a writer catches an attitude.
Reminds me of some of Mark Twains work
Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer.
And the gist seems so personal, almost
as if you've experienced it yourself.
Happy Holidays Mitzi ...

powerful write-you are a master!

Strong, as they said. Yes. Fearless in expression. Intense, with the language bending to you, saying what you want it to. With lesser writers it tends to be the other way round. That's what shows you. The words are happy to be used by you and language is at your will.

A soul-gripping account, Mitzi. I am left quite without the right words. Love and best wishes to you,

STrong...eye opener for sadly we all know all too often this does happen...it is not fantasy but real world and often repeated from generation to generation and people did turn a blind eye to it or at best put it down but never acted. You captured it well Mitzi.
