Laughter is the Best Medicine


(water rushing) (brooding music) (fighting) – Think I care about this dress? (muffled arguing) – [Voiceover] Sometimes
someone hurts you so bad – I don’t think you understand. – [Voiceover]] It
stops hurting at all. (brooding music) Until something
makes you feel again. And then it all comes back. Every word. Every hurt. Every moment. How could you ever
understand where I come from? Even if you ask,
even if you listen, you do not really
hear, or see, or feel. You don’t remember my story. You haven’t walked my path. You haven’t seen what I’ve seen. (ocean waves) (desolate music) My past defines me. This is who I am. I am unseen, unheard (camera flashing) unwanted. That is what I am. If even I am anything. (siren) (car door) (knocking) – [Cop] You’re under arrest. Police. Get on the floor. (desolate music) – [Voiceover] It seem
like the seemed like the same thing that held
me up forced me down. – No. – [Voiceover] In a world
turned upside down, and order disappeared. (baby crying) Nothing was how it
was suppose to be. And a heavy sadness
filled my soul. (desolate music) (crickets) (thunder) (desolate music) – [Voiceover] Deeper and
deeper I fell within myself. – [Blonde Woman] It’s
all fluffy and fuzzy. – [Voiceover] And nothing
could show me out. (baby crying) Trapped in the
misery of my life. Lost in the sorrow of my soul. Unable to see the light. Unable to see the dawn. To feel. To hope. – What are you doing
picking my fruit? – [Voiceover] To dream. (screaming) -[Voiceover] I found the darkest
days of my life kept coming. (screaming) The blackest nights for
my soul never stopped. – No, No. – Yes. (screaming) (water running) – [Voiceover] It seemed like it was always nighttime
and nightmares, and never morning. And maybe you wonder why, but mostly you try
not think about it, and try to get by, and try to survive. And all the other stuff
seems so much like nothing compared to just wanting the most important
things back again. Like wishing you could
see your mom smile again and hear her sing that one
favorite song that always calmed you down when
things were all messed up. Or if you couldn’t
have her back, at least get to take
care of your baby brother because you know he needs you, and he’s going to be
so scared all alone. And whose going to hold his hand and whisper it’s going
to be alright to him? (baby crying) And who will whisper it to me? – Hi ya, Zoe. It’s so good to have you here. Are you ready to move in? – [Voiceover] I know
I’m helpless, dependent, desperate, but what
happens when those you need the most threaten
your very existence? I’ve heard plenty of promises and they all sound the same. But push hard enough
and sooner or later they all prove to be empty. The sun comes up every morning, but do you know where? Each place it’s
somewhere different. It’s hard to find east when
you keep moving around, but at least it comes. It always comes. I’ve come to depend on that. And slowly, slowly
seasons changed around me, and it seemed this time
that maybe the world would not be pulled out
from under me again. Feet safe, roots
starting to grow. Little buds of hope for me. Slowly attempting to
trust this new life. – Hi, come over and let me show you what I got for you. I got you a gift. (far away arguing) – Do you think I care
about this dress? I don’t think you understand me. Do you? I don’t think you understand me. – [Voiceover] I wish
someone would tell me
(background arguing) it would be O.K. – I swear to God you touch me
again, – I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I will kill you. – Here let me help you. – [Zoe] No, don’t touch me. – [Voiceover] That
one day, maybe. – I hate you, I hate you. – [Voiceover] I’ll feel normal. – [Zoe] I hate you. – [Voiceover] That I
won’t always be alone. That I’ll have a
mommy who will hug me and be strong for me, because maybe I can’t
do it all by myself. (desolate music) – [Foster Mother] Hi, yes. I’m calling to (whispering). Thank you so much. Thanks. O.K. (whispering) (desolate music) (drawer slam) (drawer slam) (drawer slam) – [Voiceover] This my
past, my history, my story, is not my fault. It’s not because of me. And doesn’t have to be
what defines my future. (desolate music) I am lovable. I am worthy of care. And that glimmer of light,
it makes all the difference. The glimmers of light
give me hope that someday my summer will come. (desolate music)

  1. Brought back certain memories, it was moving. No physical ie.. beating in my life, mental , wonder if she ever fully recovered and if so how?

  2. We live in the broken Times….Where Sticks n Stone's don't break them bones…but the Whispers in the Dark Corners that grow like moss in the North of yesterday….because I know what it's like to see something funny and not be able to laugh…

  3. This poor girl I hope she can have a amazing beautiful family that loves her for ever I’m so glad she can have her brother

  4. I got my Holy Ghost Goosebumps at the end!

    Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12

    Lasting hope is found in knowing and following Jesus 💟

  5. my dad died at six my mom got a new guy not 2 mouths later he and her both loved my other sisters and brother but i wasn't good enough so they beat me and he told me if i told he would have me raped so i let them get away with it then it had been 4 years of the same thing so i broke and told on them. well i was removed it helped but i still fill alone and no mater what i am worthless a wast of space.

  6. this made me cry. It's so true cause i know how she feels,. wasn't her falt ,are just her past ,her problems , her father

  7. She just need a care person that will be there for her. She is a good girl. It just she had some bad things happen to her. And o can't say I understand how she feels.bvut my kids can. They was take from me a long time. little girl keep u head up and u will be okay. Not all people are the same. Just try to let them in.

  8. I have a baby brother and I'd DIE if they took me away from him or my family, I swear I can't live a day without seeing faces that I know and won't ever forget.

  9. I know these kind of things are hard to go through but when someone is trying to help you you gotta learn to let them help

  10. well if u want with your sorrow thing.. but u are actually playing in full 4 k movies seen by bilions of viewers and u can eat eggs

  11. I understand how she feels . Not in an exact way .but my mother used to drink heavily in a dysfunctional family…… this ain't easy .. I feel bad for what she wint through

  12. There has to be something we could do for these children. They deserve better, we are better than this. These children are angels..

  13. The single most persecuted demographic on this planet is children and it has always been that way. Is it any wonder why we are collectively a very screwed up species?

  14. I saw more things bad like that girl violence familly Its so hard to out it …the girl found how give her help..But that moment when i was 10 year..o dont found any help only my mother🎆

  15. I wasn't in the states custody but raised like it. Growing up I lived with different family members after my grandma died when I was 8. I had to carry my clothes in a trash bag too, just like this little girl. The rules changed everytime I moved. What was expected in one house could be a sin in another. You always get treated like less than and never recognized for what you are capable of. I washed clothes for 5people in one home when I was 10years old. Then when I was 16 I wasn't even allowed to use the washer. I lived in the filth of a dog hoarder (my mother) who had 9 dogs in the house that never went outside to use the bathroom. I got 2ear infections and 1lung infection, and was covered in flea bites scratched raw. Another relative I lived with was extremely abusive and strangled us when we were 10years old and even older. I definitely relate to this video. Thanks for making it to educate foster parents to be. I remember when I met my godparents (Catholic) my godfather was frustrated with me, he said, "How come you don't call us anything? Call us aunt and uncle or by our first names. I barely knew them and felt like they didn't even belong to me. Anyway, ima watch the next 2 videos now. Thanks again this is a great idea!!!😊

  16. Don't worry the doctors have pills for these people…. They gave me an injection every month… Or so often… Now I pretend I feel human, but I'm a guy… No one cares.

  17. I pray that in real life kids will never be treated like an animal 🙏. If was separated from my brother at her age I am not sure I can live again.

  18. Omg did someone read my life as a child from my memory. Oh I’m crying so hard right this minute. My past just throat punched me.

  19. Блин,я просто реву,ведь половина подростков с такими не сталкивалось,мы реально не знаем боль

  20. Guys plz just don't taken it seriously cuz this is just a acting but it is just trying to give u a moral
    Tho I mean trying to tell that don't get angry with that guy but his acting was outrageous 🙂👌

  21. It is very easy for others to tear at the fabric of someone's security (especially when they are bullies or don't understand your hurts), and it may take years and years and years to repair the damage that they do…and years, oh, I cried when she got her baby brother back.

  22. Needs a more balanced view..not one from O.T CYFS..pls make one of the sickening abuse that most kids go through once in OT/Cyfs care and then onto the Murder/RAPE/emotional and physical abuses daily/yearly. Yep this video portrays real experiences that some go through BUT to get a better understanding of the whole picture you need both sides

  23. Any so called man who puts his hands on a child or a women is just a coward. It's so easy for them to abuse a child or a woman or even a pet because they can't fight back . I've worked at shelters and the women there almost always end up back with their abuser because it's all they know . Sad that the abusing pieces of shit still have that hold over some . The best way to end any abuse is to secretly have a weapon hidden. Self defence is a choice. Arm yourself so there is no next time ..🇺🇸

  24. Knowing her case would had stability to her sooner if they were homed together or even visits, her brother would had been allowed in her life knowing all she was and could be was always a sister and the sad part of this is it happens every day kids are torn from their siblings causing more harm because they rely on each other to get threw the darkest hours and days how I know this I’ve lived it the feeling of abandonment Loneness even when their are others around if they keep the children together less damage would be done to the child giving them a sense of normalcy minus the violence and abuse but they only see it as life because this is all you know and normal is not normal

  25. I've watched this so many times and it breaks my heart, but gives me hope at the same time 🙂 so beautiful, well done Abby and everyone who worked on this project!

  26. People keep telling you to love yourself but how can you with all the overwhelming comments that tell you
    You are NOTHING and will ALWAYS BE NOTHING
