    Four years ago today I walked out of the Kingdon Hall at 12.30pm knowing it would be the last time I would ever do so.

    I haven't been back or considered going back since.

    Life in a divided family is a rocky road.

    Showing Jehovahs Witnesses that you can lead a fulfilling, happy life outside the circus that is their religion has been met (sadly) with opposition, slander & all the most bitter feelings that can ever come up into the heart of a person that practises the religion.

    It's been worth it though.

    Freedom of thought & expression mean everything to me.

    Now my children are learning the same. The religion has virtually no hold on them now.

    Life is good. It is also short. Live it!

    Let me congratulate you on your freedom!

    Leaving can be very tough, but I am glad to hear that your children are coming out of the 'trance', too!

    Zid - left approx 26 years ago...
