This is a post sent to me a couple of days ago by my old friend Brian Sheen. I was out of town and could not get it up on the blog, but the message remains the same.
Today is the 45 birthday of my daughter, Springsong Tawna Sheen, now Atkinson-Baker. However, instead of celebrating the miracle of her birth, I am mourning the horror of her death. Spring has been missing from my life for 7 years now and I have not heard from her once. Legally, after 7 years, a person who disappears and is not heard from, is legally declared dead. I painstakingly have been forced to accept this reality; may she rest in peace. Meanwhile, her murderer, David Miscavige, hides behind the pretense that Scientology is a religion, and uses the US Constitution in a manner its creators never could have imagined to avoid prosecution. Even worse is Miscavige has hundreds of accomplices who use the same shield to perpetrate this evil. They should all be charged with mass murderer of thousands of families worldwide, serial killers, left to run free and be insane as it is, are financed by our tax dollars!
Five years ago, Paulette Cooper suggested I accept the reality, that my father daughter relationship was dead. Stubbornly, I refused and wrote my illustrated book Relentless, Rescuing My Daughter from Scientology. Unfortunately, Paulette was right.
Still, I hold an ounce of hope that my never before seen 5-year-old grandson Leo, will find another way. He has not yet had the ability to make this decision for himself and to choose what personal path he will follow. Needless to say, that being raised in a closed environment of a brainwashed Scientology family may prevent him from asking questions or doing critical analysis on the information he is receiving. Regardless, I will continue to pray that one day he will awaken from his hypnotic Scientology induced trance and before I leave this human existence, I will meet him. For this, I will remain RELENTLESS!

I truly believe the Government if scared to death of the CULT , for the life of me I don’t understand it???
Mr.Sheen has been given a death sentence by a group of TERRORISTS , and this crazy L.Ron Hubbard started this TERROR GROUP , and got away with it . And the government is turning a blind eye .Does it have anything to do with POLITICAL DONATIONS ??? I’m just asking for a friend .
Mr.Sheen I’m praying for you your family and all others being treated in a like manner .
On a side note: $camology and their continuing effort to hide who they are –
That is the worst thing you can do to a parent. Take their kids away through deception. That’s abuse!
The cult doesn’t care the least of course.
The only thing that MIGHT make a difference is high-profile protests that would be noticed by third parties and the media.
Preferably a round the clock vigil in front of the Flag Building, or sometimes the main road leading to Clearwater Beach.
If it happened, the cult would probably cover the windows of the walkway between the Flag and Fort Harrison Buildings, so the parishioners couldn’t see the protester(s) below.

Brian Sheen book is one it’s kinds ,so griping , it takes the reader along with the roller coaster ride of trouble youth life.
The illustrations are nicely done , very elobrative to bridge the gap of previous decades in terms of technology and life style under discussion.
I don’t have to wait long in downloading it and finishing it.
Very precise , simple language used. One of its kind and should be part youth section of every library in North America ,Europe and Australia.
A great service for youth of this generation and future to know the evil residing amongst us.

Scientology wages a horrible type of war against those who truly don’t deserve to be victims of it.

I am sorry for your loss. Maybe you should speak with Mary Kahn and her husband. They lost their youngest son to it but they are trying to move on. ( See their great trip on Facebook to Europe last month). They haven’t closed their hearts just learned to keep living. I you don’t then the COS has killed 2 people not just one. Also, my heart breaks for you and the Kahn family. A child is your child from the day of birth to the day of death (officially). A whole in the heart that will never be filled. Just something you have to live with.
Mary Kahn says
Yes. I am so thankful I am out and celebrate my freedom in many different ways – wonderful travels being one way.
However, as Brian well knows, I suffer terribly from my son’s loss – sometimes worse than other.
Mary Kahn says
…”some days worse than others.”
