I've hvae read all of your books, Mr. Pelzer. I believe all them. I am a survivor of neglect and abuse. I'm sorry you were a victim, and I admire your courage.

I read your book today "A Child Called It" and my eyes teared up often as I read about the utter cruelty that you were subjected to. I visualize that innocent, wonderful little boy pictured on the cover and when I picture the suffering he endured I cried bitter tears that this happened to him.
On March 5, 1973,you found out that you are not "It", you are DAVID PELZER, a human being just like any other human. Thanks be to God that you were freed from that monster who gave birth to you.
On that day the crushing cross you had bravely carrying for so long was finally removed from your bruised and beaten body. Satan was defeated and God gave you freedom to live the rest of your life well.
Your suffering parallels the sufferings Jesus endured when He carried His cross and was crucified. The Lord will keep you close to Him from now on and your reward will be great in Heaven.
David Pelzer, you are my hero and I am grateful that you have a wife and son. I pray for you to enjoy more grace, peace and love until the Lord takes you from this world.

TravJax - you are incapable of composing a literate sentence, and certainly one that any intelligent person may wish to read. I might offer you the suggestion to spend some time on yourself, your life perspective and definitely cleaning up that trash can of a mouth of yours!

David Pelzer, i had just recently borrowed your book from a friend and it is the most inspiring thing i've ever read. i am sincerly appologetic that you had to go through all of this, but for real, you are an inspiration to all.

Kelly you need to be corrected about the bleach incident - he didn't DRINK it - read below:
"A few of Mr. Pelzer's experiences included being accidentally stabbed in the chest by his mother and then having her refuse to take him the hospital because of the negative appearance it would portray; his mother "forgetting" to feed him for 14 days; being called "it;" and living in the basement with an Army cot and no blankets. Even so, a guiding principle in Mr. Pelzer's life is "hate no one."
Another torturous event was his mother's ammonia and bleach "game" where she would mix them 50-50 and then lock her son in the room with the fumes.
"It will burn your esophagus and finally burn your lungs. It's called dry land drowning," he said. "I learned very quickly to stay down until the gas went away. I simply did what I had to do. That is why we train as much as we do -- so it becomes automatic. It's not pretty, it's not fair, but you just have to cowboy-up and say, ‘I don't want to be in this position. I see something else I want. I'm just going to pay the price and make it happen.'"
