Marilyn states, “As I got a little older, I soon finally left Warm Springs, Georgia, from my aunt’s house to live back with my mom. Everything was back to normal. I still didn’t have much of a clue on why I was separated from her to live with others, however, I had gathered my own conclusions from listening to the grown-ups gossip and making remarks to themselves when they thought I wasn’t listening. By the time I was eight to ten, I noticed things were going on that reminded me of some things happening when I was a little younger before going to live with relatives. Things had gotten to be very difficult at the house in Atlanta than other families.

“Every day there were newspapers taped to the windows, and I was told not to mess with it. I would ask why, but mom would say, ‘Don’t worry about it, just don’t touch.’ Now when it came to my older brother, he never had newspaper in his room on his windows. It was just me and mom and elsewhere. My brother’s room was always in thick smoke from the smell of incense burning every day, with candles burning in a tin pan, that I was also told not to touch.”
