Time to Take a Stand
By Nellie Miller
August 21, 2010
My heart goes out to and I agree with Kysa Barrett's letter regarding
the abuse suffered by her son at daycare. My daughter was abused
by her babysitter when only one and 1/2 by locking her in a windowless
bathroom and turning off the lights. I found out one day when
her older sister explained what was happening. I asked police
at the time and they told me that unless there were physical
indications nothing could be proved - her word against a 5 yr-old's.
Of course, they never went back there again. That was about
13 years ago, and she still can't sleep without a light on!
I too had to quit my job because I had nobody to entrust my precious
children to... hard for a single mother to do! Somehow we made
it and you will to.
It sounds like Kysa's son will have his day in court and I hope
they find extreme justice. The only satisfaction I ever received
was looking that horrible woman who hurt my kid in the eyes,
telling her I knew what she'd done, that she was no kind of woman,
and asking God to impart his retribution. I am not particularly
religious, but I do think He's got my back on this one!
