      Hey there! I was "lucky" enough to get sent to both Palm Lane AND Mountain Park. I was first sent to PL in March of 2000, and then was sent to MP in October after I got busted in a cool group that (literally) encompassed half of the school. I think that going to both places kind of makes my take on things unique. It's funny to read all of these posts. Even years later, it's amazing the rush of emotions that I get when I recount all of the things that happened there through other people's eyes. I know that some of the things there that I saw still haunt me to this day. I like to think I'm not a crack pot, and can separate fact from fiction. It bothers me to see some people attacking others, when in reality we all went through the same hell. No, I don't believe that we were "doped". In fact, I WISH that were the case, but it wasn't. But I also have trouble with the people that say they never saw abuse go on there. That's a crock of shit. Just because we weren't walking around with black eyes doesn't mean we weren't mistreated. I think that Ewa said it, that the physical side was more in the boys' dorm, while the emotional battery took place in the girls'. I don't talk about this much anymore. I guess I got sick of trying to explain something that is incomprehensible to people who haven't experienced similar situations. Or the callous disregard of family members who had no other reply than, "you got yourself sent there", or, "what were we supposed to do?" I don't know...how about sending me to a prep school in New England, where the tuition would have been comparable, but the education would have actually gotten me into college. And by college, I do NOT mean Hyles or Crown. Oh well, water under the bridge. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I also had considered writing a manuscript at one time on the things that went on there, but I put the project down and never finished it. I'd love to help you out if you need insight, stories, or even just help editing. My number is 352-262-3830, and my email is ashley-peterson@live.com. Feel free to call me at any time or drop an email. Sending love to all my brothers and sisters, -A
