Today’s prompt comes from 100 Inspirational Journal Prompts by Melissa Bolton @ The Mogul Mom
And it comes from… well, you know where by now….
Who is someone you admire? Why?
Right now, I have a lot of admiration for Leah Remini. Not sure if many of my readers know who she is, but she is an actress and recently left the Church of Scientology and is working to expose some of its bad practices. She has a new 8-part docuseries that just began on Nov 29th on A&E called Aftermath. As many of my readers know, I love research, and I have always been fascinated with Scientology (my dirty little secret is a Scientologist). I have read and watched reports of ex-Scientologists for years now. When Remini left, I knew she would shake things up. That’s just the kind of person she is. And believe me, it isn’t easy to be critical of this organization. They are brutal toward ex-Scientologists. They basically have a scorched-earth policy toward anyone who criticizes them. When you go to the Aftermath page, be sure to read the letters CoS sent to the producers of the show. The smear campaign is horrendous. People tell Auditors every secret they’ve ever kept and the CoS uses those secrets against them if/when they leave. Remini is brave for exposing them and I sincerely fear for her life.
