I Will Not Be Silent tells the story through a 9 year-old's eyes of physical and mental abuse and a life consumed with fear, anger and denial. She slowly loses her childhood, having to care for her younger siblings and help run the household as her father's continual drinking escalates. Her father's alcoholism spirals out of control and his sanity begins to erode. Her mother finally makes the decision to leave him for the final time, but unfortunately that time brings life-changing consequences to the entire family. The images of that day continue to plague April, but she has made it her mission in life to be a voice to the voiceless, and break the cycle!
This compelling work puts a human face on the problems that go with abuse and addiction. It tells how determination and faith in God can help break the cycle of abuse that continues from generation to generation.
