Intense; realistic; loved the movie reel theme

This story touched me deeply. I could not only feel the pain you and your sisters went through but the healing that writing this piece hopefully brought. I honor and respect your stand on the side of forgiveness. You are truly an example for us all!
This was an intense horrific story. As a mother I cant imagine letting a man hurt my babies. You did agreat job pulling the reader into the story.
The movie reel theme was a good vehicle to portray such horrific violence. The contrast between then and now so stark. Good job.

I thought this to be a highly creative and effective format for the telling of this painful experience.

Well done.

It's awful how men can transfer their pain onto their children. You've written a powerful piece.
Excellent storytelling, making the action painfully visible to the reader.
