The Seed Discussion Forum / Re: Operation Reentry

was just thinking about Operation "rear Entry" today, which pops up in my head on occasion.  I was 13 years old (1977) when my parents, freaked out about my older brother's drug problems, put me in this place after skipping school and trying pot.  I learned much of what I know about drugs in that place. To this day, the months I spent in this program continue to haunt my memories.  Rich so-called ex-addicts mentally abusing children and extorting money from their parents with promises to "fix" their child. My brother's head was shaved as punishment (many times), my hair was cut by inches at a time, forced to wear a stocking cap to represent a shaved head, a sandwich sign stating what a piece of crap I was, sweeping the gutters in the street of Collins ave and 36th st.  I was in fact a rebellious child and that saved me from this place and these people because I refused to buy into this scam (that my parents apparently bought out of fear) mentally and continued to rebel - my stubbornness and insight at the age of 13 kept me from going insane - the experience has however remained a trauma in my life. As OR taught me, "to be aware is to be alive"
