After spending an entire day writing a commentary on this report, Jilliestake decided there was no gracious way to add a commentary that would be short, sweet, inoffensive, and to the point. Phone calls, emails, and comments have reflected shock and disappointment.
Jilliestake will state:
For the child that drew in his own blood on the bathroom wall, or the myriad of children that were beaten, or those children that tried to take their own lives, or those that were zip-tied, cold-cocked, neglected and abused both physically and psychologically, this just strengthens our resolve to make certain this can never happen again.
The Ridge Creek School facility was most certainly not, nor ever was conceived as a "sanctuary" for children.
And that's my take,
"For the Children Left Behind"
