I greatly, greatly admire you. I would love to read your book, but unfortuately on a fixed income I can't at the moment. Thank God for men like you who aren't afraid to take a stand for what they believe in. You fought such battles for your children, you dug in deep and you weren't afraid. God bless you and keep you always safe.

This was nothing less than an emotionally moving, take-my-breath-away, heart-gripping read. Parts of the book were very difficult for me to get through because I could feel the pain behind what you and your children experienced. Yet, what I felt more deeply than the pain was the unwavering love and commitment that compelled you to do whatever was necessary to protect your children. What an amazing journey this life has brought you. I wish you and your family the love and happiness you so deserve.

My Dearest friend Glen, before I begin, I must say, that no one should have to go through what you've gone through. As I began reading your book it soon became apparent I wasnít going to be able to put it down.
Knowing this is a true story, tugs at the heart-strings and causes one to cringe knowing what those precious children endured. Right or wrong, it is not for me to judge. As a Mother who would do anything for her children I can see why you did what you did. If you hadnít, heaven only knows what could have happened to them living in the environment they were living in.
Your story is not only compelling, heartbreaking, but it is also a testimony of real love from real people who live and breathe everyday, and are there for us in times of need. Some would say they were angles, and I believe that would be correct. You were so blessed to have family that supported you in your decision; but you already know that.
This is truly a remarkable story of bravery, courage, and hope. It was an honor to read your book. Blessings.

Glen, finally - I've finished this book and I must tell you that words can not begin to discribe how touching this story is. One can only be blessed and encouraged to do great things in the world through acknowledging a higher power, while following ones own heart. What profound strength, courage, love and devotion. This book would make a great movie and bring tears of joy and sorrow to many eyes!!

The adventures of Mr. Socks (Short Story) - 11/18/2009 3:08:30 PM
Ahh...Jack Socks. We all worried about your whereabouts, Mr. Socks. The whole 'facebook gang'. We've gotten to know your dad and your family through facebook, and we got to know YOU. "How" you ever thought a life 'outside' on the run would or could surpass your plush spoiled life on the 'inside', I'll never know. Like your mom & dad...I find myself wondering quite abit just where you went and what you did for those thirteen days and nights, Jack Socks. Will we ever know? Do you think about those adventures yourself? Were they good ones? Scary ones? Hmm...one has to ponder.
However..you are home now, Mister..and your parents are elated. Try not to venture out again any time soon...got that?

A sense of loss from parental alienation. (Short Story) - 10/19/2009 11:01:54 AM
Mixed feelings here. I was taken from my father. But then, suffered horrific and terrifying experiences with a stepfather. It was then that I could only WISH to be taken away. I was able to find my father later in life and have a beautiful and right relationship with him. But the scars that I carry from my stepfather will probably never heal. Where was the help we needed then???
The CPS system is in such disarray and has been for many, many years. First case in point: why are so many foster children abused by foster parents? Why are the foster parents not screened better?
I could go on and on as I'm sure most could. I feel for your situation as I know my own father lived with such pain. But I also know that there are still some children out there who are having to live with unspeakable abuses because they are NOT removed.
I pray for all sides on this one.
God spoke to me today. (Short Story) - 10/19/2009 10:32:36 AM
This is a beautiful story. Reminds me so very much of my sister who also takes in all the injured and stray animals that come to her. She, also, has had these sorts of experiences and I hear about them from her every time. I can see your passion for animals through your writing just as I see hers through her telling. Thank you for this reminder that all life is precious. I'll be sending the link to this story to my sister.

God spoke to me today. (Short Story) - 10/13/2009 1:30:13 AM
God is a clever one,He promises not to use His powers when inviting you for a game of chess on the beach...but it does. He granted one of your prayers as he move illegally one of His bishops to ambush your king.
But, all in all I love when He talks to me.

A sense of loss from parental alienation. (Short Story) - 8/2/2009 1:35:53 AM
Sense of loss, are only parents and grand parents feeling it or are our little birds flying away feeling it too?
Protection for our children, for all children should be there, but yet, a stiff penalty for the "goody doers" with malicious claims should be there too.
I expect any time hearing from you saying proudly, "my son, the Doctor" and we will be as proud.
A sense of loss from parental alienation. (Short Story) - 8/1/2009 10:52:59 AM
Dear Glen, I empathize with you. I am still getting through my sense of loss after Elijah moved out at age 22. That's what they do as hard as it is, it's difficult to come to grips with them being gone. (Out of sight)
What you went through years ago has left an everlasting impact on your life. I am truly saddened that you had to experience that.
In the past I did, in another sort of way...and yes that all mighty dollar means everything...(Sadly) But you know no matter my thoughts about the father who abused my son, Elijah has been able to forgive his father and is enjoying his fathers company for the first time in ten years. He now calls him ĎDadí again.
Iím left now listening and at times find it difficult to hold my tongue, but do because I see a higher power at work in this relationship. We have a wonderful, merciful God who understands our needs better than we do.
As hurtful as it is to see your family leave and there is a tremendous sense of loss, we must remember God has a plan. He will fill the hole in your heart as you daily ask Him to do so. Thatís what I do.

New review on amazon (Article) - 6/21/2009 6:05:10 AM
Thank You for writting the book "Unlawful Flight". When I saw you and Melissa on Dr. Phil and after hearing your story, I cannot say enough "Thanks" for getting the word out regarding Parental Alienation. You truly are a HERO to so many of us parents and children that suffer through the effects of Parental Alienation. Your work will always be cherished for me and my family because of you, I was able to bring a family that was once torn apart back together. Iam proud to call you my friend, as I know that your book and real life expierence will help many more parents and children in the future! Thank You!
Newspaper review. (Article) - 10/17/2007 7:19:04 AM
Prior to deploying to Iraq in 2003, I was falsley arrested and framed by sons mother for assault charges. Since 2003, I have been framed by the local Warsaw Missouri Police Dept, Lincoln POlice, and ColeCamp Police
I am living today what Glen lived in 1980. Nothing has changed. Fathers still to this day have no rights. I have been falsley accused of sexually molesting my precious Five year old son. I have been framed by the local police, Family Services and I fired Eight Lawyers.
My son and I are innocent victims of this corrupt Family Court System and by those who work in the Local, and State offices that are paid to help children from neglect and abuse. My son has been burnt by an oven, cut arm, bruised head and nose, cigarette burn, and chiggers on his Penis and all over his body. His injuries are simply abnormal and much to frequent for a Five year old little boy. He saw his mom get beat at her washing machine and said and I quote
"MOMMY GOT BEAT AT THE WASHINGMACHINE BY DADDY JASON AND I TRIED TO TELL HIM NO BUT HE WOULD NOT LISTEN"
One year later he told my friend " MOMMY GOT BEAT AT THE WASHING MACHINE BY DADDY JASON AND I GOT THERE TO LATE"
Before my tour in Iraq and even now in 2007, my son and I continue to have our Civil Rights violated by this corrupt town in Lincoln Missouri, Benton County Missouri.

Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 5/21/2011 5:28:12 PM
I have to give you such kudos for sticking this out. I am/was a step mom of 3 kids. My husband took them to another state but only after finding a better paying job than he had and a better home did he file for divorce. No, I was not the reason. I didn't meet him till after he filed for divorce but I watched and had to endure a mother that wanted to sell her children to him for money. His profit sharing money. She never asked for custody, that would have taken away from her 2 day binge parties and all nighters. While I slaved to raise hers and 2 of my own working 60 plus hrs. a week for 10 yrs. and still the courts, our courts in our state told her she only had to pay 15.00 a week in child support, not for each kid but for all 3. Which she never paid a dime of, not even after taking her back to court. They threw out what she owed but uped it to 25.00 a week, again, not a dime, no school supplies, no clothes, no birthdays, Christmas, nothing from her. I saw the anguish these kids went thru, the anger, the sorrow, the blame. It was awful. Then there were my 2 who felt replaced because I had to spend so much time trying to ease my step kids minds that their mom loved them she just was confused and all the while all I wanted to do was beat her ass (sorry, had to say it). But the few and I mean FEW times she actually called she spent the entire call bad mouthing their dad and me. So you see, you are not alone Glen, just love them even as adults because believe me they still feel all those childhood fears. You are a good man, God bless you and your children.

This was obvously written from not only your heart...but your soul. It is a scenario that plays out in far too many children's lives today. I have tears...just so many tears reading this. I also cry for the children. Thank you for speaking out for many parents- through this poem. It truly is a reflection of your grief and sorrow.

This is an incredibly gem of writing and I won't forget it.
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 1/22/2009 9:04:24 PM
I was moved by this poem Glen. I know a father who is experiencing this kind of heart-ache even now. I must commend you for sharing this with the world because people need to hear this. Keep up your writing!
I especially like the way you allowed us to hear from the depths of a child's heart. You've said in effect "children need to be seen AND HEARD"
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 1/8/2009 8:22:24 AM
My stepsons write this every day, but we get no letters, no calls, no anything, we can only imagine this scenario, but our hearts are trying to seek out the filling for the voids, praying, "Oneday"
A heartfelt pen, Glen
Love and Peace~
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 1/7/2009 2:39:15 PM
this is truly heartbreaking, Glen. As adults it is difficult to comprehend this merry-go-round of pain and confusion when partner relationships go pear-shaped. But for the children - God, you portray this so vividly. Your story is life to countless thousands of parents in disarray and children in agony. Blame and guilt both given and received. How I wish it were not so, but sadly it is for many, and I can only applaud your bravery, honesty and courage for sharing this true-to-life view with such poetic craftsmanship and strength. God bless you, Glen, and all those you strive to comfort and help. Love, Kate xx
That look. (Poetry) - 1/3/2009 5:38:02 PM
This is so sweet, Glen. Very reassuring and romantic lines, couldn't help but feel special as I read along. Like someone who is afraid to jump in and yet wants to... only to find that someone is waiting to catch you! Simply beautiful.
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 1/3/2009 5:27:16 PM
Hello Glen, how could I have missed this? Guess i've been away too long from the hub. Now im back and so glad and excited to read your works again. Your deep love and concern for your children can be felt in every paragraph, the bond between father and son, father and daughter, it's just wonderful & mysterious. Life's lessons are sometimes hard but they are there to strengthen us spiritually. I pray all is well with you and your family now, esp that you wrote this some two years back. I am just drawn by the way you put into fine poetry the kind of conversation with your son, that you might have in your mind and heart. Be well, my friend.
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 11/4/2008 6:34:51 PM
This is a heartbreaking write. Children are always cast in the middle, they don't know what is happening to their parents. Its so sad. I hope so much everything works out for you and your children. My thoughts and prayers are always with you.

Interesting topic as I spent many hours as a child doing sidewalk drawings with chalk of many colors now lost forever, but remembered....
Be always safe,
Sidewalk Chalk drawings (Poetry) - 5/1/2008 3:05:28 PM
This is so strange, it almost seems divinely contrived. Not more than 30 minutes ago, I was sitting pondering my daughter's sidewalk chalk etchings where she wrote "I love you." I thought how the pending rains would wash it away and how youth is similarly fleeting and washed away over time. I thought of writing about "sidewalk chalk words" - then saw this poem listed. Your write is thought-provoking with good, strong words of advice. I'm sure this poem will touch hearts.
Safe Passage. (Poetry) - 4/3/2008 7:05:32 AM
What a wonderful poem! I felt like some poetry today and decided to view your page to feed my hungry poetic appetite. I'm glad I did. What a touching and loving poem shared in memory of your father. You are such a bright light to the world. Hope all is going well for yo and your lovely family.
That look. (Poetry) - 1/26/2008 5:18:06 AM
Deeply touching and profoundly wise. These words seem born of great love and great understanding. Each of us has been on each side of this shadow and can, therefore, feel the emotions behind the thoughts. Especially touching when one considers it may have been written for a child. Very nice.
Screaming in silence. (Poetry) - 1/11/2008 1:39:58 PM
My husband doesn't do well during the holidays because of these same feelings. Granted, he has our children, now, which helps... but he has two boys he never gets to see...it's so sad.
I could never know what this feels like!
Love and Peace~

Many have no idea of the pain. Thanks for writing this as for certain reasons i can't even write on here anything on this subject matter...

A sad situation for a father that cannot see his children, whether it is Christmas or any day of the week,,, hard on the child as well, a no win situation.
Bless you Glen,
He has it all (Poetry) - 12/18/2007 12:08:09 PM
A Moving Poem, and yet so touching thank you for Opening my eyes and giving me somehing for me to think about as well pray about.
Thanks for shearing this with us
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 12/18/2007 12:00:48 PM
the worse thing in a family setting is when the most importan people you love are the ones who get hurt the most when something like this happens and it is the most saddest thing any one would have to go thou...and it takes a real long time before the soreness of the matter to heal, but sometimes it never really heals untill one of the spouses given or the childern are given to one or the other and sometimes that can be bad as well but then not that much dose it turn out for the good.(A Powerful Pome says Richard Swartz -Columbus NE)

Makes me bleed, Glen. This goes straight to the heart and pierces the soul. Christmas is such a commercial rat-trap, further exacerbating the apart-ness that many of us feel. Even within the warm circle of friends and family, sometimes. BUT, when it comes down to it, another one person to share The Day with and appreciate the real blessings of communion with is what it's all about... and what really comes to the fore inspite of the mountains of food and wrapping paper that seeks to get in the way. It is the simple Christmas wish of us all, to love and be loved. Truly touching, Glen. Thank you. And hope your interviews and appearances went well. Love, Kate xx

You express powerful, soul-stirring sentiments via your verses here, Glen. Your poem is eerily similar to one that I posted here some time ago entitled, "Gathering of One." Thank you for sharing. Best wishes to you,

Glen, This is a beautiful story,,,as sad as it is. Nobody should feel so alone,,, I sure hope Santa can bring him his joy.
Blessings to you always, and Merry Christmas!
Is today the day? (Poetry) - 11/12/2007 4:59:04 PM
Yes, is what comes to mind and heart. Yes, this is the way to be; and, you've expressed it so clear and lovingly.

Hindsight is 20/20 (Poetry) - 10/11/2007 7:57:17 AM
I believe that God truly directed your thoughts and your pen. He needs to be in our daily lives. Parents need to teach their children about Him and to walk His walk and talk His talk.
Hindsight is 20/20 (Poetry) - 10/9/2007 1:57:50 PM
Dear Glen, the day they wouldn't allow prayer in schools the Ten Commandments went out the door!
I couldn't agree with you more on these issues, and a few others.
When the CAS allows a child of 14 who willingly wants to have sex with a boy deemed none of the parents concern...then in my opinion they've gone completly insane. Our world is growing increasingly cold.
Amazing write Glen, Blessings, Holly
Hindsight is 20/20 (Poetry) - 10/8/2007 11:55:59 PM
Glen you could not have said it any better. Yes, we have given up, not lost, so much from what this county was founded on. Yet it seems that not very many care these days, only interested in their back pockets.....
Hindsight is 20/20 (Poetry) - 10/8/2007 3:55:45 PM
We should all live with compassion and love for one and another ,, it should not be old fashioned,,, but the fashion of today. We need to teach our childern,, and learn from them as well.
Glen, you are an inspiration to all,,,,always your friend, Christine

Letting go (Poetry) - 9/29/2007 1:45:18 PM
Bless you, Glen. This tears at my heart. I am blessed in that I have long since been gifted with seeing my children bloom in the later teenage years, such that they already far outstrip me, I feel, in many ways already more self-assured and ready to take their place in the world than I shall ever be. They have had a strong father figure in their life. And I am grateful. Very much. My heart grieves for those who have parented alone: alone with the turmoils and the pressures; alone to provide; alone to both mother and father their kids. They have my utmost love and respect. But it is very much with trepidation that we have to let go and allow the sea to absorb them, watching with baited breath to see if they sink or swim. We can no longer control the waves, but we can still be a refuge and a safe harbour as we watch for their safe return... Hopeful that they will still want to come visit! :)) A thoughtful and stirring write. You are a wonderful role model. TY, Kate xx
Letting go (Poetry) - 9/26/2007 1:21:50 PM
Through God's guiding hands we, as parents, always try to do our best and to pass on all we have learned. Once children are grown and on their own, they are free to carry what has been instilled and nurture their own dreams and hopes...Great write...
Letting go (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 6:08:35 PM
My kids are at this point now,, It is hard "Letting Go",,,But not Letting Go, would be even harder. We want the best for our children.
My oldest daughter is expecting a baby in 3 weeks,, reminding me of the cycle of life. (in our hearts we never let go). Glen this is a great write,,, really hard to review, as my children are everything to me,,, so it is hard for me to express what I am thinking,, but as a parent I am sure you understand,, as your poem expresses that.
Take Great Care, Christine
Letting go (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 2:49:41 PM
To let go is the hardest part of all, but when children's lives and safety are in peril, it's for the best. Well done.

Letting go (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 1:45:29 PM
Letting go is truly one of life's most difficult jobs. Yet, when we give them the tools and watch them fly - we can only watch with a tear in our eye, and hoping that we didn't take too much away from them.
This is awesome,
Letting go (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 1:38:39 PM
I think for me the hardest part in watching them walk away, although they are not ready yet, is praying that they'll have a better life, and not run into the bad luck I had.(That they will make good choices.) Your poem is very moving Glen, blessings, Holly
Letting go (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 1:12:04 PM
Great thoughts, and if they follow in your steps, they'll be mighty adults..
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 9/25/2007 9:42:26 AM
And sadly this is the world we live in. It's always the children that suffer.
I can't imagine a mother drinking and then telling her kids such horrible things, but I know it happens, and all too often.
Your poem is gut-wrenching, love holly

Glen this was a very emotional, and moving piece,, You want to potect children,, and when they are your own,, wow,,, I will have to read your book,,, Best wishes to you, Christine
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 7:05:44 PM
Broken homes are a sad piece of reality that is very difficult and sometimes heartwrenching to live with. Everyone is hurt, but it is, in my opinion, always the children that suffer the most. This piece eats away at my heart and soul....
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 12:32:43 PM
Sadly, this commentary is the plight of many families. Kids, in some way, thinking if they were better things would be alright.
"... give her time and give her space..." words from a Father who understands and loves.
God bless all of you,

So true and so inspiring - this prayer of yours.
God bless you and your family, along with all families.
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 9:48:36 AM
No easy answers, Glen. Maybe the daddy couldn't handle the fact that he thought he would be a failure? Deciding to leave so others wouldn't be ashamed? I don't know: but you've punched me in the gut with the pain in this write. :( I hope this isn't your reality...
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Daddy, why did you go? (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 9:48:27 AM

Sounds kinda' like my husband, the marshmallow - toasted on the outside, but ooie gooie on the inside.
The person on the other side of the door - kick it open - it's me!
What a wonderful invitation to love,
Dusk (Poetry) - 9/20/2007 3:55:18 PM
This poem is so true. Dusk can be a blessing or a curse. I am usually a morning person, though, so I appreciate that dusk and nightfall will fade quickly and I will, yet again, be refreshed and ready to tackle the world.
Thanks! I loved the rhyming in this poem.
That look. (Poetry) - 9/20/2007 1:24:57 PM
Enjoyed the write, my fav:

What a wonderful poem with solid words of golden strength. You are indeed more perceptive than you can ever image. This, my friend, is what poetry is all about. Be careful, this will bring many, knocking at your door. (smile) Thank you.

Plumb...Right on the mid wicket.
The last line says more than some may realise.
No-one has the right to own a mans heart.
Manhood is not cheap and not for sale, time to bring reality back...

I love this write, Glen. A safe refuge to run to, your words: beautiful.

With that invitation, I must tell you, "I'll be over in five!" (just kidding) Although you've touched upon something we women yearn for.. protection, understanding, and strength. Fantastic write! Holly
That look. (Poetry) - 9/19/2007 12:12:30 PM
Well, who could resist this bastion of both liberation and safe-keeping. Strong and perspicacious is the man who can admire both the beauty and the pain that every human face contains... and noble him who offers to come alongside with attempts to assuage and heal so that that beauty might be even more honed and revealed. I love the self-effacing strength in this write, Glen, that lays itself down on behalf of the object of its love and affection. Truly the heart and mind of a Knight revealed here. Bless you, Kate xx
That look. (Poetry) - 9/19/2007 12:09:41 PM
Oh My, what a beautiful invitation and a wise observation about life and hearts. Enjoyed.

Ode of our elderly. (Poetry) - 9/17/2007 8:56:05 AM
Short. Powerful. Rips a hole in the soul: all the elderly in nursing homes, with no one to give a damn, abandoned, all dressed up and no where to go....thank you for this, Glen. Dang shame: we'll be there, someday. Would we want this to happen to us??? Needs to be shouted from the rooftops!

Thank you Glen for your kinds words referencing my poem: A Danger to Myself. Finally, I view your website and am curious about your book Unlawful Flight. I also loved your title He has it all. Nicely written. A poem of few words that says much!! You have amazing rum eyes. I shell write a poem about them someday-
Is today the day? (Poetry) - 8/20/2007 8:28:06 AM
Wonderful philosophy, Glen...always tell someone you love them today, because there may not be a tomorrow...I think the Mississippi Bridge tragedy speaks for Is today the day?...how many of those folks never said I love you on that day, how many of those victims were not told by someone I love you...it's always good to say I love you...a Hallmark verse, Glen...be well always...Blessed Be.
