Zach Update

Hi again. What is happening to Zach — someone whom I've never met — is really upsetting to me. I was lucky: no one ever told me what I couldn't be. I think that his parents are terrified that THEY did something wrong, and they are punishing their son for being honest and open, and just being himself. Shame, shame, shame on them. They are weak and fearful, and clearly not practicing what they preach. Here is Zach's last post on his weblog:

Thanks.. by the way.
Current mood: numb

Thanks. Thank you for all of the comments and messages, they mean a lot. really. I was shocked to see all of this... of course I haven't been on a computer, phone, nor have I seen any friends in a week almost-- Soon. Soon, this will be all over. My mother has said the worst things to me for three days straight... three days. I went numb. That's the only way I can get through this. I agree, if you're thinking that these posts might be dramatized.. but the proof of the programs ideas are sitting in the rules. I pray this blows over. I can't take this... noone can... not really, this kind of thing tears you apart emotionally. To introduce THIS subject... I'm not a suicidal person... really I'm not.. I think it's stupid - really. But.. I can't help it, no im not going to commit suicide, all I can think about is killing my mother and myself. It's so horrible. This is what it's doing to me... I have this horrible feeling all of the time... I wish this on no person... I'm so satisfied--happy's too strong of a word the state I'm in-- that everyone's taking the time to email and write letters in complaint to these people. I dont know if it will do anything, but if something did happen it would be -- awesome.

Verbal abuse by family members, physical restraint: these are the hallmarks of Communist "re-education camps" in the USSR, China, Cuba, Vietnam, and Cambodia. I am physically sick reading this.
