I have to call this a wonderful challenge. Being forced to look back at a particular place in my lifetime, which I had tried to drown in the depths of my being, I've found some solace in dredging up the negative experiences. When Martha contacted my cousin Cole, he was not aware I’d be so vulnerable, but he knew something inside me deserved exposure. He was so right. Sharing my experiences for the book woke me up. Now, I’m just attempting to accept the facts of my life.
