No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. ~Eleanor Roosevelt

There used to be a time when my parents smiled at eachother and would swing me between their arms. Picnics at the park were a regular occurance, and my family was happy. In those days, I was sheltered and loved; I thought that the world was a perfect place filled with nice people and happily ever afters. Sometimes I stop for a moment and wonder how my life could have ever changed so drastically. The people that used to be my family went away and never came back.

The author's comments:
The idea for this piece came from a short story that I wrote for a contest. I didn't win, but family and friends encouraged me to expand it, and this prologue is the first installment in what I hope turns out to be a intriguing and honest story. So if you like it, please rate, comment, and keep and eye out for the next part. :]
