The Path to Freedom
Healing is a daily process and a daily choice that we can make.
Keke Morgan

This little girl is six years old, living in the beautiful, sunny state of Florida. She is graduating kindergarten today, and in the graduation program she’s singing “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.” She’s smiling in the picture, but she’s thinking God can’t possibly have me in his hands...

She’s terrified of going home because she resides with a monster...One who physically abuses her, verbally makes her feel inhuman, and sexually assaults her...

It’s a family member with whom she lives. This little girl already, at six years old, feels worthless, not worthy of love or protection. It is here she learns not to value family, that she is alone. She fears life because she thinks this is what life is all about, so at only six she’d rather die...

This little girl endures the abuse for two years and finally gathers the courage to tell her parents after relocating to another home in another state 16 hours away from her abuser. While one parent believed her, the other blamed her and called her a liar. Nothing ever happened to the perpetrator; in fact, he’s still to this day considered a part of her family. Later in life, the parent who initially believed her will go on to blame her as well.
