When I first listened to this tape... I thought it was me... my god... how could they do this to us little children... it was the same world over... and we could not stop the nuns... from doing what they did to us...
Only a few of us girls... were given an education... and I have struggled... to put my thoughts on paper... you even took away... the means for me to express myself... and even to be able to tell my story... and true feelings about what you did to me... Your identity was taken away.. your name was changed... and you were given a number.
You were broken down... and utterly at their mercy... Not only sex abuse of children... but allowing misery upon misery... to be heaped upon children... of a physical... and psychological nature... by religious people... nuns... priest... and their workers... every day and night... Ann
