I LOVE YOU, MOM – Please don’t break my heart is the true story of one boy’s journey through a childhood of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. John endured neglect, isolation, physical beatings, mental degradation and malevolent admissions into numerous mental institutions, and eventual attempted murder within the custodial supervision of his unscrupulous mother. This literary work is indeed John’s factual account of his small, bruised body clinging to life, his struggle as a teenager fighting and winning against insurmountable odds, and his entrance into young manhood as a warrior for the young and innocent, protecting them from experiencing a similar childhood of hell on earth.
Excerpt: “Seconds later, she opened the door and jerked me out of the car, threw me onto the ground like a piece of trash, and pulled something from her pocket. Even though I knew something terrible was happening, I did not move a muscle. She would really get angry if I moved! Without saying one word, she slid a plastic bag over my head, covering my face. For a split second, my mind went numb. I gasped for breath as her arm pressed tighter and tighter against the plastic bag covering my nose and mouth. Suddenly the probability of death overpowered all fear of a beating. For the first time in my life, panic replaced all dread of violence and pain. Gasping and choking, my fingers clawed at the bag. My mom grabbed at my hands as she struggled to keep the plastic over my nose and mouth. My weak, undernourished body was no match against my tall, powerful, and very determined mother. Fighting for breath within the tomb of plastic, I felt her grip tighten even more against my face.”
John Borgstedt is an author and child advocate that is devoting his iife to protecting and rescuing children from enduring a childhood of hell on earth like he did. His dream is to have a boys home where children can receive the love and guidance they need.

Nov17Shabbe164 I have a question. For those who have used this, does dust and other stuff get into the case when you put it in your kcopet eventually? If that's the case, does it scratch the backside?Do you have to take it off often and clean it and does the case get damaged if you do it many times?

Dec13Tom Billy Phillips, I commend you for your grbondureaking research that reveals without a doubt that the Catholic Church (even popes and cardinals) was, for a time, very welcoming to the study and teaching of Kabbalah.
