My father was here this weekend… This has never been a secret really but we don’t get along very well… I haven’t written or talked about him much in the past… but something happened this weekend that I need to get out in the open. I have to talk about him now because I am afraid that if I don’t I will just go back to where I was 3 years ago… back to the silence…

I came so close to deleting this website Saturday, but I am really glad that it is still here…

My father is the kind of man that would almost do anything to defend the “family honor”, and I guess in his life he has had to do that a lot… He had a crazy wife and he has a crazy son… right? But isn’t it overdoing it a little when you close your eyes to something like seeing your child’s body with cuts and bruises and you know why that is?

This is something that he told me a few years ago… It was around 1962… my dad comes home from work…the little child…his son… my older brother… is found in the back yard…. on the ground, and open window above and his wife acts like nothing has happened… For her that little boy never existed….

He knew very well what had happen… but because of “family honor” this was to him “only” an accident, and somehow the death of my brother was filed as “accidental”….

To defend the “family honor” my parents moved… They started a new life and had my sister Angela and they were doing great (according to my father)…but then I was born…

I probably was a difficult child…. I cried a lot and kept my parents awake my first moths… When I was old enough to walk I started to run and I was always getting myself into all kinds of problems… I couldn’t sit still of one second…. not until I discovered the piano

There are still a lot of gaps in my childhood memories but I am pretty sure my dad knew what was going on when he was away working. But again he choose not to do anything about it… all in the name of “family honor”.

Because of this website he is bringing this all up again… Keep quiet because it is bad for the family… What about what is bad for me dad? What about my brother? What about all the little children out there in the world that are being tortured by their parents? Should we close our eyes at them too because of their family honor????
