I can feel your pain of having to move and supress your feelings. I am 21 and now i am starting to remember parts of my childhood that my mind has repressed. There is hope in us all as small as it is its always there good luck and god speed.

Tracing out our story lines... very scary, very powerful.

As a small child, I felt in my heart two contradictory feelings, the horror of life and the ecstasy of life. --Charles Baudelaire

I'm so glad you can do this. At some point we have to stop looking back at the past and set our gaze on our present and future, no matter what age we are now. After all, it's here and now that we will be spending the rest of our lives.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me

This land was made for you and me.
