Dear Esther Rockett,
I am a 15-year-old girl and have known Serge Benhayon since I was too young to remember. Both my mother and father have attended Universal Medicine courses for over a decade, and for many years my sister (who is 3 years my senior) and myself have been attending presentations and workshops too.
I am extremely close to Serge Benhayon and his family – for around 3 months of the year Serge and Miranda Benhayon stay in our home, and many times I have visited and stayed with them in Australia. Simone Benhayon lives just down the road from me, and I would consider us very close friends. I have many other friends in the Universal Medicine student community too, some similar to my age and some much older.
I am fully aware that over the last three years you, Esther Rockett, and a group of other individuals including Lance Martin, have been making claims that many teenage girls were being forced/coerced into Serge Benhayon’s home, groomed, molested, sexually abused, messed with mentally, pried on etc. etc. I’m guessing that myself – a 15 year old that has grown up with Serge Benhayon like a second dad to her – is likely (according to you) to be a victim of this manipulation and abuse of power.
Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Susie Williams and I am 15 years old.
I love life. Do you know how many teenagers can say that these days? I’d say in my school you could count them on one hand.
I have never once touched alcohol, a cigarette or drugs of any kind. I can hear your response, Esther Rockett: ‘Ah – a classic Universal Medicine trait! She must have been brainwashed to not touch anything that would mean entities could enter her and rape her’. Blah, blah, Esther. I have made this choice because (sadly unlike a lot of other young people) I have been educated properly as to the effects of these substances to the human body. I do not like the sound of a hangover, of being out of control of my body, of an altered mental state. I would prefer not to have black lungs or liver cancer. I value myself too much to use, drink or smoke substances that will damage my body or mind. When it comes to my body and my life, I choose never to compromise for ‘experimentation’ or socially fitting in. Period.
Ah, you say – must be a social reject… Spends too much time at those UniMed Courses to have any friends.
Wrong. Although I may not classically fit the profile of a ‘fun, aloof, careless teen’, that does not mean I am a ‘reject’ or outsider. I am the most caring and supportive friend you could have – the people around me refer to me as ‘the big sister’, with an utmost refusal to lie or manipulate, and an everlasting hug to return to. Loyalty like nothing you’ve ever seen.
The grades! The grades!! Filling that brain with such eso crap must leave little room for school!
Wrong again. Straight A student, deal with it.
Obese? Eating disorders? Insomnia? Anxiety? Criminal? Self harm?! Surely there must be some signs and symptoms of being a sexual abuse victim?
Esther Rockett. You are wrong.
Just under three quarters of the children in my school have a mental health problem. Almost everyone I know has self-harmed once or regularly in his or her life. Some of my friends have criminal records. They do illegal drugs like MDMA and cocaine at 15. Some deal drugs. A large percentage of young people have anxiety or depression. We all know obesity stats are on the rise. Insomnia is huge. Eating disorders are more and more common.
And I fit into none of these categories.
I am a healthy, fit, dedicated, bright, caring, joyful, mature and confident young woman, who is showing a lot of her friends and peers what it means to truly live life, and not allow yourself to be at the tail end of societal nonsense and corruption.
And YOU believe I am a sexual abuse victim. Someone who has been brainwashed. Molested. Played with.
My life is wonderful when so many other young people are struggling to even wake up in the morning. Not because they lack motivation but because nothing can take away the self abusive thoughts, or the anxiety, depression, abuse they are victim to from their family, the headache they get when not under the influence of drugs, when they see and feel more about the world than society allows them to.
So why are you spending so much of your time focusing on me, or those who are truly joyful, when the world is crippled and humanity are suffering so greatly?
Just today I completed a physics exam, where I had to analyze and compare different graphs. If my life were a graph, it would be a straight line proportionally going straight up. As the years go on, I seem to love life more and grow in my confidence and grace. There are around 1,799,999,990 other young people whose graphs look the polar opposite to this. Years pass and their mental and physical health deteriorate under the pressures of society.
Get your facts straight. You can figure out where the ‘problem’ lies within the two.
15 year olds can do it, so can’t you too?
