Reflections on Family Ties

Having gone five chapters into Family Ties, we thought we should reflect on the story so far.

The abusers,

The abused,

The absentee caregivers,

The abuse apologists,

The partly silent society,

The unbothered onlooker…

Where do you belong?

Where do I belong?

That child calls you teacher (or other titles), do not have a hand in their defilement.

The trauma of abuse is too terrible a thing for that pleasure you desire.

Seek help for healing, abuser and abused.

Be present, absentee caregiver.

Get some knowledge, and speak the truth at all times, apologist.

Help, heal, inform, dear society.

Speak, correct, report, onlooker.

Where do you belong?

Where do I belong?
