    Mairead, the things that we don't know about...

    Sinead O'Connor has become involved in working to combat sexual enslavement of young girls.














    In the United States. :( I was horrified to learn that something that horrible was happening at all, but that it was happening in a supposedly "enlightened" country.

    With DH job Tink I've heard some dreadful things that happen even locally that I would have never known were going on.

    This film, I'm sitting here watching the story of 3 very determined and very clever girls.....but it's a terrible feeling to know that this actually happened.

    woosh.....

    I'd recommend anybody who hasn't seen that to sit and watch it for an hour and a half to see what the H**L went on, right up until 1970 apparently.

    Just so shocking.

    Wash houses in Ireland. :( Didn't close the last one til mid 70's. :(

    The Canadian Aboriginal people will tell you a terrible, terrible tale of abuse done to every child (EVERY child) that was taken from the tribes and sent to "school."

    The US has a long history of treating the Native Americans just as badly. :(

    To be honest, I imagine there isn't a single place in this world where pain and suffering hasn't been inflicted, and still is.

    oh what a shame you didn't watch the rest. It was an emotional film, not in the crying kind of way, more thought provoking and disbelief that people could do that to others.
