Hear Me Cry "Betrayal of Innocence"
by Philip Ferriell
The abuse that Vivian endures throughout her childhood leads her down a path of self-destruction that includes drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and anxiety. Even later in her life, after Vivian has married a good, decent man and has children of her own, she continues to wrestle with the emotional and mental damage, but she uses food as a balm for the pain. Vivian’s faith in God kept her alive.
