  1. Riveting. Am humbled by the strength of Kahlie Towle, growing up intact in an environment of violence, physical danger and worst of all, denial.

  2. Damn. Never had a story give me the chills the way Kahli Towle did. My God. I’m sitting at my desk shaking my head. Glad she’s okay. The truth always comes out.

  3. Wow Kahlie story is chilling and amazing and I want to hear more.
    What a women.

  4. Kahli, I hope you see this because your story really touched me and I want you to know that I think you are an amazing person. In my eyes, you are a hero. You were incredibly brave and I want to heap praises on you, but I can’t seem to find the words. You are an inspiration and I can only hope that I would be able to deal with such a situation as well as you were able to as a child.

  5. Kahlie story is amazing. Goosebumps!

  6. Not sure if this will ever get read, but Yang’s pronunciation of ‘agape’ should have been ‘Agape’ with the ‘e’ having an ‘ay’ sound. It’s a kind of love.
