  I have experienced more than some and less than others.

 I took on the Role of an adult at the age of 12 after my mom had a tragic operation on her brain, and my father and I taught her how to walk, write her name and survive all over again. 

“The strongest woman I knew had to lean on her daughter and other children when Dad was out enjoying his alcohol. You see and hear things you never want to see and hear again, so you put on a good face and toughing up your heart.”

“This man works hard and enjoys life outside of the four walls. Again you see and hear things you never want to see and hear, so you put on a good face and toughing up that heart a little more.”

Now that man has passed away.
