Summary Redemption

When I decided to look I found love and compassion than I ever imagined existed Most significantly I found forgiveness I might even call it redemptionOn July 4 1990 eighteen year old Stacey Lannert shot and killed her father who had been sexually abusing her since she was eight Missouri state law a disbelieving prosecutor and Stacey’s own fragile psyche conspired against her She was found guilty of first degree murder and sentenc Society has failed Stacey Lannert so many times over the course of her life This book is an eye opening account of sexual abuse and how it ruins so many lives Stacey has endured so much in her life and now out of prison for killing her abusive father has dedicated her life to helping other victims It was heartbreaking to read and I cried several times How sad it is that those she admitted the abuse to either didn t understand what she was saying because she was too young for the words or they weren t properly trained to handle such an admission I think the biggest uestions I have after reading this are how do we shed light on the signs of sexual abuse in childrenadolescents how do we teach children to speak up while they re often threatened that they will be killed if they do without scaring them and how does our justice system change so that this doesn t happen again Thank you Stacey for sharing your story
