As you hear the voice of the author it changes from beginning to middle to end as at times it is one of hope, then heartache and then despair always hoping to find that one positive that would change it all. From working in the laundry to the kitchen to the unnecessary beatings she and her sister endured Othello withstood more than anyone should in a lifetime even before she reached her ten.
But, when she turned 12 things changed at the orphanage and her father came to see them to take them for the weekend. Leaving them alone and then making them wait until he took care of his male needs with Othello.
How can a father abuse a child like that and how did she deal with his betrayals only wanting him to care for her and her sisters and brothers. Then the most precious gift of all she bestowed upon herself. Not only that it seemed to ease her way with Ms. Polk her matron. Othello was bright, full of life and made sure she protected her family when she could. Then, a miracle happens and her brother Don returns from Korea. Things changed for a while since he and his family came to visit and the rest were united for a short time.
Then the unthinkable happens at the orphanage and the abuse roars on even worse several children were raped.
The ending will astound you as Othello gets punished for reporting what we all know is wrong and should not have been swept under the rug. When you read the Epilogue you will know what the fate of her family members and the courage it took for Othello to forge ahead, go after what she wants and never ever have to Cry Into The Wind Again and let her prayers and wishes fly away.
The final chapter is quite compelling and can be used as a resource for anyone who has ever been a victim of any type of abuse: Regaining, Self Respect.
You certainly did. Abuse of any type is wrong and the way the children in the orphanage in Texas and Oklahoma were treated is beyond horrific and the fact that there are places today and kids in foster care that are enduring the same type of treatment equally as horrific. I started with review with Close your eyes and picture your life in a field filled with mud.
Now: Open them and realize that everyone needs to protect the children from harm and the picture painted in the first chapters of this book should not be the ones painted in real life for anyone. I dedicate this to all children who seek help and hopefully will be rescued and receive it.
I dedicate this to the memory of Mason and Thurmond and to an author who shared her thoughts, her life and her goals with us and achieved so much in her life. Thank you for sending me this book to review. It was not uncommon for Othello and her family to be referred to by others as "white trash.
Her mother told her she might as well, "cry into the wind" because the possibility of getting any of those was next to none - hence the name of the book. Feb 18, Karla Goforth Abreu rated it liked it. When reading this I sometimes felt deeply angered at the people who abused and neglected Othello and her siblings. The utter poverty she describes, along with the horrible treatment of children is beyond horrible.
The fact that institutions, in the 20th century, early or late, could commit such atrocities, slave labor, sexual abuse sanctioned by the church and filthy practices roaches in the food is incomprehensible. Yet, of course, we have had that today with constant sex trafficking, Catholic sex abuse cover-ups, etc. Even so, the depiction of the approval or blind eye turned from that era is atrocious.
Yet, there is a sense of triumph in the end. The book would have had more stars but the writing is not quite as eloquent as some biographies. I recommend this book if you like biographies about people who triumph through the most difficult of circumstances. Mar 07, CM rated it it was ok. Just sad. Apr 27, Martha Cheves rated it it was amazing. When he had finished, a gaping hole about six feet wide and twenty feet long lay before us. He tried to run up it and only slipped and slid because it was so loose.
The rest of us simply stared. When the digging was finished, the man drove the backhoe onto his trailer, hopped into his truck, and pulled it up next to ours. He and Daddy unloaded our headboard and dresser, set them on the back blade of the backhoe, and tied them in place with rope. Without another word, the stranger climbed into his truck and slowly drove on down the road.
Eyes wide open, fixed on the trench, the tears flowed, uninterrupted. Don and Mason glared at Daddy. Daddy turned and left. This was a thousand times better than living in the truck. In fact, as far as I could see, this was the greatest place anyone could live. Like rabbits! Sliding into our house and burrowing beneath the earth.
She was the oldest girl and the middle sibling of seven. He never lived in the hole in the ground but spent his time in town going from bar to bar and woman to woman. To sell a surplus of ancient 35mm.
The film that was being cut up? You guessed it. Sauerlaender was able to rescue the fragments that make a complete copy, perhaps the only print in existence today!

But the frightened girl runs from her eerie suit- or and he realizes — he is a monster. Filled with fury by his fate, the Golem pursues the girl, blind- ly destroying everything before him. In the end he perishes, falling from a tower. His corpse lies in the street, a shattered figure of clay. Twice we are told by film historian Oscar Estes he was captured by soldiers in his own army and held as a spy be- cause of his Eurasian features.
When he was recognized, he was released! Rabbi Loew Albert Steinrueck , an astrologer, is studying the portents of the stars thna an astro- labe. His interpretation of the signs: misfortune threatens the Jews. Descending a spiral staircase he says to his assistant. Famulus Ernst Deutsch : "I must warn our people.
The stars predict disaster. They practice Black Magic. We Decree that all Jews shall leave sight of the city before the month is ended. Rabbi Loew is studdying. Then he lifts a hidden trapdoor to descend to an under- ground crypt.
With his knife point he cuts a mys- tic seal across the door, enters, removes a stone panel from a window and light falls upon a strange figure leaning against the far wall. On the floor are several broken, incompleted statues: this one, against the wall, seems lacking only a face. With his hands, Loew burrows in the soft clay and molds the features.
I warned him twice of danger. Tell him I seek an audience. Golem portrait. He goes upstairs for help. Famulus is astonished as Loew appears from the trapdoor.
He drops his skillet and its alchemical contents. They struggle with the rigid statue up the stair- way from, the co'Pt. On the laboratory level they place it upright in a closet.
Come to the Festival in the castle and amuse us with your magical arts. When the magic word is placed in the amulet on his breast he will live and breathe as long as he wears it. Waving a wand, Loew points in the cardinal di- rections, then, above the floor he draws an imagin- ary circle about himself. Fire ignites a magic ring about the sorcerer. He beckons to Famulus who fearfully steps inside the circle. Flitting, dancing balls of fire swirl about their heads. The demon's bulging eyes and slit-like mouth are horrible — they begin to smoke fiercely and hurricane winds blast the frightened men.
The face fades from view and in a flash of smoke the fiery circle vanishes. It is over. Loew lifts Famulus to a chair and shakes him awake.
Deliriously happy he exhibits the amulet, then takes pen and scrawls the magic letters on the strip of paper; A-E-M-A-E-R. In a full length shot, the Golem opens his eyes. The Golem looks all around — wobbles a bit, side to side — walks toward Loew, beside the forge. The Golem pivots, starts back and encounters Famulus. He hurls Loess assistant to the floor, returns to his original position. Triumphantly, Loew snatches away the amulet and the Golem tips rigidly backward, inanimate, against the stairway.
The Golem at work chopping wood — with the wrong side of the axehead! The Golem moves to the well. In his study above. Rabbi Loew observes his creature, with his daughter Miriam. She fears it. He starts off in the wrong direction and Famulus motions the true way. As the Golem walks down the street, Famulus is his shadow.
The carved creation that alchemy turned into a massive living monster. The elders cringe in fear. He will come to you each day with a list of articles we need. Greatly per- plexed, because he cannot remove the basket from the folded stone arm, Famulus motions the Golem to straighten it. The reaction is so sudden it fright- ens Famulus but he takes the basket from the out- stretched arm. Famulus becomes fascinated with controlling the creature, takes him to the forge to try to ex- plain how the bellows fans the flame for his al- chemy skillet.
Golem stok- ing the forge with vigor. He orders the Golem to wait. Armored guards gather to look the Golem over. Loew approaches the Emporer. Everyone is horrified as Rabbi Loew signals for Golem to approach.
The Golem stalks thru the crowd of dancers to a position in front of Em- porer Ludwig. A geyser of smoke erupts above the throne. The ceiling slips. The court panics. The Golem bars the door. He positions himself on two fallen beams and reaching upward holds the ceiling; it splits down the middle, leaving a tent-like area above the Emperor's guests, with the mighty Golem supporting the peak.
When Loew reaches to removed the amulet, the Golem is furious! His eyes glare, his chisel-shaped white teeth gnash with rage and he raises his arms to strike Loew down. At which point the Rabbi snatches the amulet. The Golem topples upon the floor. Asta- roth will demand his creature back. Then the life- less clay will scorn its master and turn to destroy him and all it meets.
Golem," says Loew. He awakens the creature. Famulus orders him to pound and Golem rattles the plaster but the door holds.
Then Famu- lus demonstrates a shoving rush at the door. When he attempts it, the Golem pushes both fists thru the oaneling and walks into the room carrying the door. He is hurled aside and runs out the door. Famulus stays with Miriam and sends Golem after Florian. Before the knight can find the door, the Golem bars his escape; the knight flees up the stairs to the high tower.
Crouching against a parapet, broken knife in hand, he watches Golem emerge from the trap- door. There is a struggle on the roof and the Golem hurls the knave to death on the street below. They click open and glare with fury! The Golem s square chiseled whit teeth gnash with rage! Estes Jr. The girl cowers in fear but is seized by the Golem and carried downstairs. He places her on the work table. Famulus arrives with fire in his eye.
The Golem covers the amulet with his hand as Famulus leaps in vain. Then the Golem seizes a firebrand from the forge and uses it to keep Famulus away — and sets fire to the house! Grin- ning idiotically he experiences fire! Famulus has fled. Grabbing the girl by her pigtails, the Go- lem drags her away. At the ceremony in the Synagogue, Famulus interrupts with a message for Rabbi Loew. The Golem stands alone at the far end of the ghetto, dragging Miriam by the hair.
Loews roof in flames. Crowds milling. A man shouts. Golem places Miriam on a boulder, strides off. The Golem arrives at the great ghetto gate. He tries to push the gate open; the huge bar is in place. He pushes harder and the bar breaks. The gates swing wide. The child- ren are frightened and run. All except one small blonde girl-child. With happiness on his face, Golem confronts the child.
