The Stolen Kids of Sarah Lawrence What happened to the group of
bright college students who fell under the sway of a classmate’s father?
Talia told her housemates that her father was getting out of prison and needed to crash with them for a while, they were mostly unfazed.
Within days of his release, Larry Ray moved onto Sarah Lawrence’s campus.
The residents of Slonim 9 were in some ways typical Sarah Lawrence students
They were also sensitive and, in ways common to 19-year-olds, searching for guidance. There was Daniel Barban Levin, who had begun exploring his
sexuality. Claudia and Santos had both struggled with depression. Another roommate, Isabella, went through a bad breakup soon after Larry arrived.
Talia’s boyfriend at the time remembers seeing Larry and Isabella reclining on Talia’s bed. Larry was stroking Isabella’s hair, soothing her.
I can't go into detail like I wanted to. But I wanted to share this article, it caught my attention almost immediately and takes you very deep into
the life of a group of young teenagers who were quickly manipulated by one of their peer's father. If you have kids in college or getting ready to go
to college, or you yourself are preparing or already enrolled, take time to read this.
This story is about Larry Ray, the father of Talia Ray. Talia's parents divorced when she was young but it was too late, she'd already been
brainwashed by her father. She told the court that her mother and relatives sexually abused her and Larry was granted full custody. The story is long,
but it sucked me right in and I couldn't stop reading until I got to the end. To hear these kids tell their part is frightening.
I grew up skeptical of people like this, but these kids were all facing their type of loneliness or confusion. Larry, because of their situations and
because of the fact that his daughter, their leader, said he was a great guy, was able to step right in and take a nearly immediate control.
I hope you have time to read the article in its entirety because the snippets do no justice the reality of the story and how easy kids can be
manipulated and controlled. The only reason the parents, who Larry turned the children against, didn't act physically is because they didn't want
Larry hurting their child(ren). As a father of a 17 year old son, there's nothing in this world that would stop me from putting my life in danger to
make sure his life is safe.
Enjoy the read and let me know what you think. I can't even begin to cover the disgust and the severity of this, knowing there are people out there
like Larry. Not as bad as Manson, but I have no doubt he would've taken it that far if he needed to.
