Three Girls


This building housed three girls aged 12 to 14. Each picked up downtown by Jack who was a middle-aged drug addict that picked up girls to support his habit. He raped each girl once they were locked up. After the rapes, they cried.

Beth ran away while being sexually abused by her older brother. Jen ran from juvie after being arrested for her own drug abuse. Kwan was a refugee and sold by her father for $80.

Each girl was promised food and someplace to sleep. Now, they were slaves being indoctrinated into prostitution. They were scared and longed for home.

Everybody Loves Clowns


Who doesn’t love clowns? I fought with one once. In 1984, my daughter and I went to the circus in Ohio. We were seated when a clown approached us. Melanie started crying because she was only two and frightened. Despite her crying, he continued toward her.

I would have backed away from the frightened toddler. But that is me. To amplify the problem, he handed her an outrageously priced toy. He stretched his hand for payment from me. I told him “No.” He attempted to take the toy from my child.

Don’t hurt a mother lion’s cub. “Don’t you dare take that toy away from her!” I said.  He still attempted removal. I stood.

He backed away leaving the toy. Did I have the money to pay for the toy? You bet. Did he deserve the money after what he did to my child? No, he did not.

To this day, I no longer like clowns.
