by Daenette Pohlman
At the age of seventeen, I knew I would someday write a book. About four years ago, I began to write it. In 1988 I started some personal journals for self-help. It was a kind of therapy for myself. I put that away after the local paper printed some of my journal. At that time, I only wanted revenge for my stepmother.
My book wasnít going to be about two abused children. I wanted it to be about a womanís hate, such hate I searched for the word ďhateĒ and other names to describe hate: Loathsome, detestable, odious, offensive, etc. She hated these kids beyond hate and every word to describe it. Itís about oneís life filled with anger and rage every day, how she takes it out on her stepchildren.
After becoming a mother, I canít imagine anyone treating children the way Sherry did, simply knowing right from wrong. She had no addictions or disabilities. Why did she use all her energy for hate? To this day, I still donít get it.
Iíve read other books about abuse cases; there are worse out there in the world. But I believe it helps the victims to read about these stories.
