Scared Straight? A Childhood Confession & Adulthood Question

My mother was a monster.

At least when I was five.

Until I was old enough to understand.

I wanted to share the video below sooner, but feared you’d judge her too.

She’s not the same person.

Neither am I.

Scared Straight? is my childhood confession.

It allows Little Marcy to be seen and heard as I was.

Innocent. Naive. Afraid.

As you watch the video, I hope you’ll answer the questions for yourself.

Do you? Don’t you? Why or why not?

Were you… Scared Straight?
