Writing the truth

After a childhood of abuse, Katherine Reddick was not going to write a dishonest obituary about the mother who harmed her and her siblings. So, when her mother - whom Katherine had not seen in over 30 years – died, Katherine told the truth.

Katherine’s words, announcing the torture and abuse suffered by her and her siblings, have “gone viral,” but her hope in writing the truth is for people everywhere to pay attention to child abuse in their midst and work to eradicate it from our lives.
