Lynn's Story

BETWEEN THE YEARS 1970 TO 1974, I WAS SENT TO BOYS TOWN OF THE DESERT. I WAS IN MR. BROOKS CABIN FOR A WHILE, AND I WAS MOVED TO MR. BOATMAN'S CABIN. WE CAMPED OUT ONE NIGHT AT SALTEN SEA. I REMEMBER CLYDE, TERRY , AND OTHER MOSTLY MEXICANS WHO WERE ANGRY BECAUSE THEY DID NOT HAVE A FATHER. I REMEMBER BROTHER RUSSEL, MS. AMBERSON. I WAS SET TO BOYS TOWN OF THE DESERT FROM SAN MATEO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. I AM SADDEN BY THE CLOSURE OF BOYS TOWN OF THE DESERT BECAUSE OF THE ABUSE WHICH I AM NOT SURPRISE. BROTHER RUSSEL TOLD ME THAT INSANITY IS WHEN YOU DO NOTHING ABOUT ABUSE AND LOOK AT WHAT THE OTHER STAFF MEMBERS WERE DOING TO THE BOYS LIKE THROWING A BOY DOWN THE HALLWAY AND BREAKING HIS ARM., AND NOBODY IS DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

OOK THIS FOTOGRAPH OF MY SELF THE WAY I LOOKED WHEN I RAN AWAY FROM BOYS TOWN OF THE DESERT. I ALWAYS THINK MY NATURAL FATHER WAS ARRESTED FOR FELONY CHILD BEATING. HE WOULD PUT MY BRTHERS' HANDS AND MY HANDS ON THE BURNING STOVE AS A PUNISHMENT. MY FATHER NEVER SPENT A DAY IN PRISON, BUT THE SYSTEM ALWAYS PUNISHED MY BROTHERS AND ME. I GRADUATED FROM GALILEO HIGH SCHOOL IN 1974. IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. I WENT TO COLLEGE AMD I STUDIES MUSIC, CRIMINAL AND CIVIL LAW. I AM A TEACHER, NOW AND A PARALEGAL. OLD FRIENDS REMEMBER ME AS A PERSON TO GO TO AND ASK FOR HELP WHEN THEY WERE IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW, OR SOMEBODY IN AUTHORITY. I always wanted to be a POLICEMAN when I grew up. My family and friends thought that was a GOOD idea. As it turns out, they were RIGHT.While at boys town we did not have text books ,nor home work, Mr.Bush ,à teacher threw a desk at a black student which brused his right eye.
