Burn them all, with white hot fire

I'm about 20% of the way through reading Moira Greyland Peat's horrifying childhood autobiography "The Last Closet: The Dark Side of Avalon", and I'm having to keep a firm grip on a pressurizing bubble of rage, disgust, and horror.

I knew it was bad, but I hadn't realized how bad it was. And what's worse, is the reality was again even worse than what she has put in the book, since she said she's left many things out of the book that she was not able to separately corroborate.

People knew. Lots of people knew. Lots of people still knew, who now surely are hoping they die of comfortable old age before Moira's book prompt more people to remember, and speak what they remember, and name the people they remember...

(I just wrote, erased, rewrote, and erased again a number of paragraphs here. I may let it keep getting reworked in my head, and I may write it out again later.)

Burn it all, with white hot fire.
