Reviews - What do customers think about Vowed to Protect?

Vowed to Protect  Nov 4, 2006
This is a personal narrative with much supporting evidence for the conditions endured by children placed in the St. Coleman's Home for Children in Albany, NY, during the early 1950's.
It is a story of survival in an abusive institution, and how the survivors continue to fight for truth and justice for lives lost.
Shame on you, Sisters of the Presentation.
The book provides excellent context for understanding the impact of institutional mistreatment of children, in the name of "doing good" and should be required reading for students in the field of social welfare, and anyone interested in history.
We need to listen to survivors .... this story must be told.
Also read "A Man Named Dave" .....
The Out Of Control Order Of The Sisters Of Presentations  Aug 20, 2006
Margies' book tells the reader of the dark and secrective side of this Religious group who were supposed to be the protectors of the helpless childern placed there. She encountered Sister Regina who beat her for her sadistc pleasure as well as the beatings she gave to numerous other childern from statements given to to Colonie New York Police Investigator Michael Ruede. Regina is just one of the nuns who committed these crimes against the innocent and unprotected childern of society at this institution. There are many other names of nuns mention in the investigation who were also sadistic to the childern. Margie rebelled against the nuns ,tired of the beatings and finally seeing her sister severly beaten was the last straw. For protecting her sister she became an outcast and lost everything in her young life. Its a powerful story of what the human beings and society is capable of doing to childern when placed in institutions.
