Hi Everyone,

Today, I go public. Today, I no longer hide behind a pseudonym. As of today, a new website, www.exscientologykids.com, launches.

This website was created as a collaboration between Astra Woodcraft, Jenna Miscavige Hill, and myself, Kendra Wiseman. It contains the stories of numerous children who grew up in Scientology, as well as easy-to-understand critical information for Scientology kids, and for people who are new to the Scientology critics movement.

I want to thank everyone on this forum who has supported me over the last two years while I dealt with disconnection. Your efforts, and the efforts of Anonymous, have made me feel safe speaking up. I want to afford the same luxury to others who may not feel so safe.

To read my story, and the stories of other children who grew up in Scientology, please check out the stories index on our site, which can be found at http://www.exscientologykids.com/storiesindex.html

If you have a story of growing up in Scientology, long or short, with your name or anonymously, we will publish it.

Thanks again. Enjoy.

Mom, Dad, Uncle, Aunt, Cousins, Brother, Nephews and Nieces: I'm sorry, as I know this will upset you all further. I do feel that this truly is the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics. I love you all. Please don't let them convince you that I'm a suppressive person. Remember me.

Much Love,
Kendra

Kudos to you Kendra! ImageImageImage

What a great idea (and a caring one) to start that website. I especially like your page describing the Sea Org: it is succinct, hard-hitting and very informative... great paragraphs to put on flyers for pickets and for answering questions.

We here, your fellow critics will always be here for you, to watch your back, to cheer you along... whatever.

Thanks guys. I think the idea really just came from the fact that all of us remembered when we wanted to leave. We were too scared to just jump into the deep end at Clambake - we needed somewhere that was simple, safe, and had tons of people our age. That wasn't available at the time - but it is now.

I'm just grateful that there are a ton of people that have come before us to pave the way.

-Kendra

For the world can never be
The world they see

When the darkness surrounds them
Give them love
Let it shine all around them

Bless the beasts and the children
Give them shelter from a storm
Keep them safe
Keep them warm

Give them love
Let it shine all around them

Kendra, that was beautiful and brave and gut wrenching. Your message reached deep into my soul.

You state: "I challenge anyone to look into their heart of hearts and tell me that if they ever found a cause that they considered worthy...that they wouldn't join it."

Bless you - and thank you - for following your *true* convictions.

BF

Wiseman by name and Wise (wo)man by nature - thanks Kendra, there's a lot to ponder in your very articulate and balanced telling of your sad story.

I particularly identify with your description of "a world where one's ethics is subject to one's conscience and nothing else".

You're quite right. It doesn't make remaining "ethical" any easier, but at least it's based on reality AND retains a potential for evolution.

Thanks

Love to all

TomL

Kendra, Astra & Jenna - ARE YOU GIRLS FOR REAL !!!!!!! :shock:

:D I can see that you ARE real but what you are doing is almost too good & too brave to be true :D

I wish you all the best after this coming out & that you will achieve even more with your new website than what you were hoping to achieve with it when you created it.

nexibello

P.S.
I very much like the way you "handle" OTIII on your website. I hope it encourages a lot more people to not take the easy way by just making fun of Scientology but to put their finger on the right spot: the abuses

"So that's why critics and the media make fun of Scientology?
Well, yeah. You gotta admit, it's kinda funny.
But personally, we at ESK think that making fun of Xenu all the time is really missing the point. If Scientologists want to believe in Xenu, they're welcome to do so. What really ought to be criticized are the practices of Scientology management, such as physical abuse in the Sea Org, denial of basic medical services, disconnection, and other issues of malfeasance."

Emma, love your site. Your story is very well written, interesting, and cuts to the heart. I'm glad you got that sneek peek at the ohtee materials!
I'm steering my children to your site, the stories of the others' might help them heal from their experiences with $cieno parents.
Thanks to all on your site for your bravery.

Kendra, Jenna and Astra:

You are HEROS! I have a lump in my smart-ass throat just thinking about the courage and dedication you have all evinced in STANDING UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT!

Thank you a THOUSAND times over for taking on this project to reach out to child and adult victims of $cientology and for giving them a UNIQUE place where they may share and come to know true fellowship and comfort.

What a blessing this site is and YOU are its MOTHERS. Thank you for being the parents that were denied to you. Thank you on behalf of all the souls you will help.

All good things to you all on your personal journeys and in your roles as guides through and out of the El Ron mindf@ck.

It made me sad to read that you cancelled your social networking sites in advance of the new website's launch because you didn't want your friends to be bullied and hunted. F@CK YOU, El Ron! So. Seriously.

This board is a spirited, friendly place. YOU ARE WELCOME HERE! We are GLAD you're out, glad you're sharing, and hope you find telling your stories theraputic and restorative.

And $CIENTOLOGY JUST MUST SUCK IT! IT MUST!

Thank you, dear ladies! I will hoist a glass to you tonight. I will buy the pony keg, because my buddy RayRay is cheap, AND he bought last week's...but may it be among the many toasts that will be made to the launch of your new site and its mission.

May whatever creative force there is BLESS your dear hearts!

I'm verklempt!
