Synopsis

Tyler’s Pain is the true story of racism—how, even though we have come a long way in this world, it is still a current and relevant problem. Janette Rusher’s daughter, Tyler is now eighteen years old. When she was ten, she had to endure the taunts of children who insulted her because she was black—different from them. They had been taught that it was acceptable to treat others who are different in a disparaging manner. It is hard to imagine that a child of ten might be considering her own death in order to avoid the daily pain of being targeted just for being a different race. Tyler’s Pain is the story of a mother’s journey guiding her daughter through such events to insure that she survived. She wanted her daughter to understand that the world is good and that the actions of a few ignorant people should not change a happy life. Above all, Rusher wanted her to know how important it is to must stand tall and always fight for what you believe in. Tyler’s Pain does not favor one race or another. The message that resonates through it is that, through patience, love, and faith, it is possible to make a difference in the life and perceptions of a child.
