I went through the weekend on a thread over at ICH.

I have put many digg items and oped articles on this blog about it, but only ONE of them shows up on a google search, so I suspect that isn't the greatest place to go look for links.

I've noticed two things - any mainstream media articles are only now beginning to trickle in and secondly many of the best reports about it are coming from women.


The link to the amazing process I went through at ICH is posted just below and you are welcome to go have a look at it. Hard going doing that thread AND hearing the testimonies, both. But the battle to have this heard will continue .. that was one great lesson taken away from my experience.

The killing and indoctrination must stop!
