My experience with the Allan Memorial Institute The Throwaways They came for us in the 70's they told our parents that there was something wrong, that we didn't work right. There was nothing wrong with us. They'd take us to schools poke us, prod us and tell us we were broken but said that they could fix us. They filled us with lies corrupted us, made us doubt ourselves. They stole from us what made us smile, what made us happy. There was nothing wrong with us. They destroyed the path we were on and then abandoned us like broken toys, they left us in the void. They called themselves educators but they were perpetrators, they took the child and left a husk in it's place. We live in a society where children are not allowed to grow, if we deviate from the path we are judged, we are robbed of who we are and then discarded. There was nothing wrong with us.
