I'm speaking of the FGAs who actually did something to change the situation for children growing up in the group. Most of the adults who left, did so because they knew there was something inherently wrong with the group and its abusive practises, many actively participated as well, and yet after leaving, they did nothing to fight the group or try to help the children who continued suffering inside.
This is like knowing children are being raped and tortured, living without the right to health care, education and a child's basic human rights, and doing nothing. I, for one, to this day cannot understand why.
'We were also abused', many FGAs say. So the hell what? Do you know why TFI is now dead in the water? Their death has come, not at the hands of the FGAs who began it, but by their own children - the truly abused. This total change in the group is because the SGA children decided to do something after they left. They went after legitimate change in the group, and they got it. Shame on all you FGAs who stood by and did nothing. I'll end on this particularly poignant blog by Juliana Buhring, because she says it all better than I.
