I was at Palm Lane the end of 2003 till sept. of 04. As soon as I entered PL, I was tricked thinking it was a hotel. Everytime I think of PL I want to cry because I had to act a certain way, and tell my parents I was being good just for hope to ever leaving PL. Soojin Lee was in there when she was 18 years old, and she told me that she hated PL and wanted to leave. I told her she was of age and could, but she told me she couldn't because the O'Briens would not let her, holding her against her will. I was always afraid that I would never get out of PL, so I walked the walk and talked the talk. I always used to ask If I could leave at 18, and they said NO. How about 21? NO! I was 17 at the time and I left on my birthday in Sept. If all the leaders in PL were encouraged by GOD to treat people wrong by being pushy and having power trips over thenselves, then I never want to think about "following Gods will" or " being a child of God". At least before going into PL I had a little faith that God loved me ever though I was not talking the best of actions in my life. Now I don't even want faith, and hate God for ever putting me in PL if there even is a God.
