Forgiveness Be Damned
Tommy Belanger had been born and raised in a dysfunctional family, plagued with abject poverty, alcohol and child abuse, incest and bestiality. His life was filled with grief, hunger and horror. He and his siblings were moved from one poverty-stricken two-bedroom shack to another. From the failed farm in Manitoba to another province – always hoping for a better tomorrow and landing in a home the mirror image of the one they had escaped. Tommy hated how that lifestyle affected him and his siblings and he detested his father more and more as the years slipped away. Tommy soon realized that it would take a miracle to escape such a life and feared that the apple would never fall far from the proverbial tree.
Tommy’s story is a reflection of how child abuse and neglect are problems that have seemingly become a part of our world. For far too long this problem has been swept away or ignored. It is time to talk about it.
