Neglected but Undefeated - Adult Book Review

I was given the Book Neglected but Undefeated in E-book
form for review from the CWA Review Crew.

This is  a Must READ!!!

Wow, Where do I start. Jonathan Burkett shows so much courage
and strength
 as he shares his heart to the world in this true story of
his childhood. Abuse and neglect are so rampant in this world
and yet it is often so hard to see with your eyes because it is done behind
closed doors. Jonathans book touches on so many important subjects
in todays society. More needs to be done to protect our children!
Jonathan gives us a seat in the front row of his beatings as a child. I look
on the image of that small child on the book cover and can just see this
little boys face in my mind. The images evoked by his words  have
stayed with me the entire week. I can only imagine the horrible affect
and emotional struggle this event would cause in this mans life. At one
point I had to stop reading and I cried for this little boy. I just wanted
to reach in the pages and tell him that he is Loved . All of this was caused
by a mother who should have loved him. A person who should be protecting
him and hugging him. Should be enjoying each moment of his little world
before it is all gone. But she could not give it because of her own tragedy
and her own struggle that she was unable to separate herself from.

  Despite all that goes on in his childhood he stands strong and falters as any
one person would. Trying to find his way in this world and tragically begins
having seizures. As he grows he is sent out of the home and placed back
in so many times. Why was this allowed to go on when so many could see
what was happening. This I don't understand. We live in a world where we
walk around with our eyes closed. Jesus' coming has a ...resonated sound
about it. He is coming we must begin preparing our hearts NOW. Not
tomorrow or the next day as if He were part of our to do list. We fill our
days with so many things and struggle to find time just to read a few verses
of God's word a day. We struggle to sit at his feet in quiet and to take the
time to really gather the meaning of His words. We become self
consumed in a world that is only seeking self need and not really looking
at what is right in front of us. We turn out heads away to abuse , neglect
and hunger.
We close our eyes and pretend that it's not happening right here
so it's not happening. We waste our time sitting in front of computers
and TV sets when we could be out there doing something. Touching
people, talking to them, making the most out of this life. If Jesus knocked
on your door today would you be ready or would you try to do the mad
clean up rush that would just not quite be enough?? My own words hurt.
By the Grace of God's hand Jonathan has pulled his self up and
looked to the only parent who could truly support him God our Father.
He is working to change his life and to share all that he went through
so that he may help someone else. Beyond courageous. Beyond words.

Jonathan know that God loves you. You are loved and your name is
written on His hand and in His heart. Thank- you for sharing your
story with us. The world is blessed by having you in it.

"Jonathan Anthony Burkett was born in 1987. He told himself, that he would
never give up, regardless of the trials and tribulations. He decided to write
in order to help himself move towards a brighter future for himself; and also
because he knows that's what his Grandparents want for him."

Here are some words from a Poem Written by Jonathan Burkett
Called Love and Abuse this is a small exert from it you can read
this poem and several others at the back of Neglected  but

"One will be proving how weak they are in life
While hating and breaking another's heart
Worsening it even more
Whenever one decides to abuse"
I encourage you to pick up this book if nothing else to educate
yourself and to start walking with your Eyes wide open.

*Note there is some explicit language and sexual content within
the book but without it you would lose the true story and testimony of
this mans life.
