I Dreamed Freedom
I Dreamed Freedom I finally made up my mind to escape to freedom one day in 1994. That day we were both home together. Out of nowhere, he started blaming me for things I hadn’t done. I watched in fear as he worked himself into a crazy mood swing. I kept quiet as he started threatening me with all the horrible things he would do to me if I left him. Then he started beating me up. Apparently, he was sensing that I was going to leave him permanently. He must have seen my decreasing love and interest in my eyes. He forced me to the balcony and put a bread knife to my throat. The sharp edge of the knife was just barely piercing my neck, and I held my breath to prevent injury. All kinds of feelings were flooding my mind at that moment, my thoughts mixed with fear, anger, and hopelessness.
