Watching the news tonight I am forced to recall a book I read earlier this year. It's called Escape.
It's the story of Carolyn Jessop and how she escaped from the polygamist organization in Hilldale, UT.
I really would suggest that you read this, it makes the news reports even more meaningful and scary!
Carolyn does a great job in the book of pointing out what it was really like, but still shielding you from some of the more 'private' moments that she had.
Really makes me want to go on a crusade to awake and enlighten the people there -- I know that sounds like I know what the right thing is. But I guess that's exactly what I am saying. I think there is value in human life, in the life of women and children. I believe that there is not suppose to be oppression in religion's name.
How do you convince a fanatic that they are a fanatic? I still want to try though -
I am the principal home manager of a family of 5, or 6, or 7 - depending on your definition of family. Anyway you look at it, I'm a woman who loves her family and loves opportunities to discover more about myself.
