And read her painful story about Faith's childhood, and click on the anti-child abuse links at the bottom. It's not your typical BtVS story, but it's something we should all think about.

Gods, Mark... that's so sad. :( What's even sadder is I know of people in our area who have had similar stories. :(

so sad
Agreed ... and yes, I know of people in this area with similar stories, too. It's actually a pretty good character study (I don't recall if you're familiar with Faith, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), in that the character of Faith as an older teen is a person who's hurt, unable to share her true emotions, and unable to trust because of unspecified past traumas. It's also the kind of story that needs to be told from a standpoint of reminding people that there's a problem out there, so overall I was happy to point people toward it.

Re: so sad
yah, I had no clue it had to deal with Buffy... lol... but very well written story about something all too real to people. :(

well written
I thought so, too; well written, and effective even if you don't know the future history of Faith's character.

hardcore Buffy fans tend to assume everyone's heard of all the characters, I suppose ... :-)
