Kelly Plasker before her death wrote a short piece on the condition she was passing through. Read below
I got thrown off course in high school by a man twice my age. My band director, using his time at Frenship high school to find his new “soul mate!
he was supposed to be somebody looking out for me, but instead of looking out for me, he looked at me in ways that men should not look at children.￼ And I realize now that predators pick off easy prey. Particularly those without much family support or resources.
The bad habits and games being in that 5-year long relationship can be called grooming and abusive at times call it total manipulation. I have unfortunately carried into relationships of mine that would’ve probably been beautiful had I not been convinced that I wasn’t worth that I was never going to be good enough for anybody with which I can make memories and grow old together.
He snuffed out my future and my ambitions in the most influential time of my life, my prime when I had so many doors and opportunities to explore but he was selfish convincing me that he didn’t want me to leave Lubbock Texas.￼
And then the promises came. The promises of the new life together with the promises of conquering the world in business to grow. Those promises quickly shattered when I learned that he was still playing house in two different cities.
The rest is a sorted history depending on who you ask. The bottom line I tried to encourage Jon to love Thomas but I have sadly learned that not only were Laura and me his students and victims of his inappropriate use of authority as an educator but have been contacted by more women with the same stories; only now realizing how perversely pervasive, things situations which are still happening in our school systems MUST STOP!
Thanks all I needed to get out there as my final confession for the sins I am responsible for adding to the cross. I love you, my friends. My brain is broken and I cannot take it anymore.
