(male #1) it's a little something i've done every night since i was a kid, empty my pocket change into this old jar. it's never much, just what's left after i break a dollar. and i never thought i could get quality life insurance with my spare change. neither did i. until i saw a commercial for the colonial penn program. imagine people our age getting life insurance at such an affordable rate. it's true. if you're 50 to 85, you can get guaranteed acceptance life insurance through the colonial penn program for less than 35 cents a day, just $9.95 a month. there's no medical exam and no health questions. you know, the average cost of a funeral is over $8,300. now that's a big burden to leave your loved ones. as long as you're 50 to 85, you cannot be turned down because of your health. your premium never goes up and your benefit never goes down due to age.

how they feel about their time involved in that sect, looking back in hindsight? terry: it is fascinating because some of them, the scales fell from their eyes, and they no longer believe what they believed. they see david koresh as someone who had total control, too much control over their eyes. others are true believers still in say koresh will come back from the dead, as he said they would, and they are waiting for his return. adrianna: how have they been able to move forward? some were actually trained to use weapons in case of an apocalyptic event. psychologically, how has that affected them from 1993 until now? question,t is a great and you're absolutely right. it was the belief of this community that the apocalypse was coming and they had to arm themselves because it would be brought down by the united states government. that was the belief, and they did

the hardest thing for the adults, decades later, is to think that their parents somehow put david koresh and this religious belief that he preached ahead of them. some of them are still hurt and bitter. some of them have made peace with it. they all look back on really a time in their childhood which still haunts them. adrianna: fascinating stuff. that is coming on tonight at 10:00 right here on abc 7's "20/20."
