This irks me, Joao Nascimento, because it’s another example of journalism failing people.
It needs to be written about because kids need us the adults who’ve been through this to stand up for them as they cannot stand up for themselves. Then again, it’s taken me all this time to write about it, that is 17 years since my letter to the newspaper editor.
This kind of upbringing can mess you up for life. It certainly did me. Nevertheless, I persisted. ;-)
