THE SILENT SCREAM
As an early teenager, Sharon moved with her family to a part of the country not far from where she had grown up, but culturally, it was a million miles away. She endured the hardships of not being accepted in school or in the community and then one day she realized that she was a stranger in her own family. Sharon tried to reason whether her parents had always been that way or if they had been coerced into accepting a strange way of life. They had become treasonous enemies against her very soul. Eventually she was forced to change, or become, a good actor in order to survive to adulthood. She "felt confused not knowing what to do or where to go, she was only sixteen..."
Thinking she would endure a loveless marriage and build a normal life for herself, she made mistakes. She had no intention of letting the children she bore become a product of that destructive environment - she would flee one way or another. Later in life, thousands of miles away, she encountered even greater challenges than she had experienced in the place from which she had escaped
Relative power governed the world of her teens. A turn to politics showed her another world of falsehoods. Greed, money, and the search for truth ruled her life as an adult. There was no winning; no life of normalcy - until the truth finally set her free. Like following a true compass, she found her refuge and learned that success is a journey not a destination.
