I don't think i posted this before..finally figured out tune goes to patriot game. mount cashel newfoundland, christian, so they say, brothers. there is a movie on you tube called boys of st. vincents based on it. read up on it..very bad situation.

the boys of mt cashel are wetting their beds
lying in wait for the footsteps they dread
too stunned and ashamed to say where they have bled
the boys of mt cashel are crying tonight

the fine christian brothers so holy we thought
some really were and some really not
they'd have gone on forever except they got caught
the boys of mt cashel are crying tonight

lives without promise lives without hope
how they must hate us how will they cope
i will follow this trail if it leads to the pope
the boys of mt cashel are crying tonight

the men of mt cashel are going berserk
raring to throttle each heinious jerk
but the magistrates say let the law do its work
the boys of mt cashel are crying tonight

i want to be there when the blame comes around
sure there's plenty enough for us all to be found
and i pray to high heavens that god hears the sound
of the boys of mt cashel who are crying tonight

please pass this on to others interested in the abuse scandals...the abusees feel that no one cares.

I suppose they mean well, but speaking as a victim of abuse, here's what I wanted to hear

1. We are very sorry this happened, and we're glad you told us.

2. We won't let it happen again. Be specific:

   He won't be babysitting ever again.
   We are putting good locks on your window.
   Blitz the German Shepherd is going to sleep in your room from now on.

3. That was not your fault.

4. You are just as cute, just as valuable, just as likeable as before. You are not 'ruined.'

After a couple of weeks, back this up with a pretty new dress or something similar that says I am worth your time and money.

5. If you get germs from your abuser, come to me and say, "Mom, I think I need to see the doctor about an infection. Maybe."

Guest..I hope someone does write such a song based on your words...there are so few songs..I can only think of a couple...one the chorus goes
look to the east look to the west look to the north in the morning
where is the baby i love best, where is my dancing darling

mg, let's hope that the Irish people never see the priests and brothers as unquestionable again.
