What if at an early age you were pushed into adulthood in a blink of an eye. No warning, nothing. Just get out and you better run; run as fast as you can because behind every closed door, every dark alley, every lurking car is someone waiting for the opportunity to snatch you. To rape, beat, torture, and sell you to the highest bidder. You will have no choice but to fight in order to free yourself, something that twelve year old Aaliyah Petty had to learn the hard way. She had adult decisions to make and no one to direct her what path would be the safest. Instead, the ones that were supposed to help her grow and teach her things that no one else could, turned their backs for their own personal gain and envy.
