Seems to me, someone doing an AMA about pizza management would be grateful to have someone who was asking questions at all. Bitching about someone asking valid questions is just rude.

I’ve read your story many times through various posts. I think this is the first time I realized Dorthy was your mother’s aunt, your great-aunt.

You were sent to live with Marie’s parents? One them was the sibling of Dorthy? How close was the relationship between the siblings? Your grandmother accused you of lying, so what did she think happened to her daughter?

I still cannot believe the horrors you have endured in your life. Just know, people are cheering you on from the sidelines. Don’t give up.

At the end of the video, when the mother states that Caleb made Jehovah very happy and that he loves Caleb for it, is the implication (or direct teaching) that if you don't make Jehovah happy he will hate/with hold love, etc..?

I grew up with JW neighbors. They had two children that were a year and two older than me. They were the only kids on my street, so of course I wanted to play with them. And their mom basically kept me around for years. But they would tell me I was worldly, bad, etc... But always with a laugh, never with malice.

Even from the age of 7, what they said, what was said at meetings, etc.. Never made sense to me.

These responses are fascinating. Thank you for sharing.

This may sound silly, but when you were a child, did you dream of growing up and moving away? Were you more influenced to leave b/c your mother had left at one time? Do most the children dream of leaving and moving to more industrialized areas?
