You have said everything I’ve wanted to. Should I ban this person from posting? This is a group vote what do you guys think?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by
MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read • Open to a random page • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!(make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
At the time I couldn’t understand the concept behind the public rapes, if that’s what you’d call them, but after returning to America, I learned a lot more about psychological warfare and how condemning the uses are.
Especially when you’re forced to watch, like it’s a movie premier, while the soldiers do horrible things to someone all the while laughing.

This is my book but I’m FINALLY reading it in it’s entirety. I never did read it from cover to back, I wrote it and let John proof read it because it was too hard for me, but now I’m finally doing it. If anyone wants to review my book please let me know, I’d love to hear your comments.
One year ago on 11-11-11 at 11:??AM my Dad, (Raymond Woodring Sr.) passed away from Lung/brain cancer. I wish I had known him better and looking back I realize just how much of a dedicated Dad he had been. He tolerated a lot, but still loved us unconditionally. He LOVED BILL COSBY so I will end this with one of his quotes:
Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby
I LOVE YOU DAD!!!
Ironically, after I escaped that camp in Iran, I returned back to the USA (in Detroit) on Nov. 14, 2001 My Dad’s birthday.
Trenton you are hearing advice from a very knowledgable lady that is CYNTHIA PUDRITH, we know each other well. We were both in the same PTSD group and I’ve come to love her like a sister, well in my case MORE THAN MY SISTER..(Long story).
Forget and ignore that other entity that thinks she knows everything. She is only in here to stir up shit and make people feel bad. It’s obvious she doesn’t know her ass from a hole in the ground. And the only reason I approved her post is because I believe in freedom of speech. We can learn from everyone even the dull and ignorant, even if it’s learning how to NOT BE LIKE THEM.
I get where your coming from. My PTSD wasn’t caused by what yours was, but I was in an Iranian torture camp, and Cynthia has went through a HELLISH, HORRIFIC experience but I will let her share if she feels comfortable.
There will always be people like this KNOW NOTHING, and I’m not saying that to just condemn her, I TRULY BELIEVE THIS TO BE TRUE.
If you ever want to be excluded from any further posts of hers, let me know, but it sounds like you are more than holding your own, and you have the UTMOST RESPECT from me.
I’m so happy to have met you, and to know there are other human beings out there that genuinely care for others. God Bless, Lori
