i want your stories
« on: July 12, 2004, 08:07:00 AM »
as some of you may know from my other posts around here, i'm compiling a book of stories about cedu experiences.  this is what i feel that i need to do right now to get more information out there to prevent more children from being sent away these types of.
i'd like stories from every angle about every element of their experience; students, family members, ex-staff members, therapists, etc. talking escorting, "the program" (and your experience with it), parental manipulation, or whatever else you'd like to write about.  if it's necessary for legal reasons(ex-staff members/therapists), published anonymity is ok (and encouraged, if that's what you need to come forth... i'd absolutely love to have any sort of staff member's perspective represented in my collection.) however, i cannot let you stay anonymous with me (such information would NOT be passed on, it simply serves the purpose of verification.) my integrity will not allow me to publish something that i have doubts about; i need to be 100% confident in my collection's credibility.

my book will be formatted so that every person's story gets it's own chapter for which i'll most likely write an introduction.  there will be minimal editing, as i'd like to keep them in your own syntax, only making necessary grammatical corrections.

at some point, i'd like to start working on some sort of film (a compelling and firey 'michael moore' style documentary.)  for this, i will also need your input, however, i'd like to start working on my former project a bit more intensively before i get into this one.

anyway, please let me know if you'd be interested in having your story/insights divulged.  we need to be heard to make the sort of change we're striving for.

please get contact me if you're interested.

It seems like most here want to defeat these places. If you want to do so, case studies are only a part of the picture. You have to defeat their practices and preachings in theory. I started this other thread with that in mind.

the way to do this is by informing the people so that these practices' natures are exposed.
without supporters, the schools will shut down.
we have to change the mentalities of the people; that's a hard task.  what exactly are you trying to do?

by the way, my goal is not to shut the schools down, that's just the result.  my goal is to inform people that there is a huge difference between ethical and unethical therapy, and that they must be wise when choosing a therapist.
ideally, i'd like to help people live their lives so that they do not need therapy.  i'd like to help parents communicate with their kids.  i'd like to help the world become more spiritually attuned; if only they'd trust their intuition, things would work out fine.

There were some good things about it, there always are. Learning how to work and learning vocations is always a good thing.

i think there was a lot more than that... as i say all the time on here: there were a lot of good lessons taught by horrible teachers.

Yeah, I guess from reading all the horror stories on here of student suicides that bottom line they spoke of was sure true.

scrubbing pans, obsessive cleaning, chopping wood, shoveling shit, cleaning trails, etc... are not what i would consider learning vocations. these are activities that any idiot with half of a brain can do.  as for running your feelings and the rest of that emotional growth bullshit, none of that has any value in the real world.  business is about sales and profit, period.  nobody gives a shit about your feelings!  why, because feelings are like assholes, everyone has them! mine are no more important than yours.

i can't remeber a time in my life when i felt
more pain, despair, and isolation than my time at cedu.  the one thing i learned from the experience was how to survive, depend on, and think for myself.  i didn't learn that at cedu, i learned that in the 3 and 1/2 months that i spent living on the streets, and hiding from the cops after i finally split from that hellhole.  out there i saw people murdered, i saw people killing themselves (crackheads and junkies), i saw cops beating people within an inch of their lives for sleeping on the wrong street corner.  i saw people beating the shit out of each other over the smallest morsal of food. I never felt more fear in my life. still i would've spent an eternity living that life, than spend one more day at cedu.  

i don't pride myself for surviving my time at cedu, but i take great pride in the strength i found to pull myself out of there. those streets are where i learned the greatest lessons of my life, and that's where i found the tools to make it in this world!

Stories last forever the change with the climate of time..each tick tick tick ...kick kick kick..
33 years of life have been lived..
.since it all means stay in touch with your soul.
..if you can find your soul that is...stay close to fear..embrace your darkness....kiss the night sky..breath deep the moving waters
.stay in love with life.....
"Da Bronx streets"..I'll never forget where I've come from 33 years later..Living on the wings of a Angel........
Peace Still Kick after all these years....
Loving Life

The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.

Has anyone ever read books about Charles Manson with quotes of things he said? He uses some of these terms like CEDU, like being "centered". Is it possible CEDU was really spawned from the Manson family?

There was one woman working there that confessed to having been a member of the SLA (the ones who kidnapped Patty Hearst).

that's what i learned too; i have a lot of power, i'm a strong mother fucker.  in order to survive at cedu, i had to tap into a source of power that i didn't know i had.  i learned a lot.  as much as i loathed it, i would never trade that experience for anything.
