Sample text

As soon as I pass Abingdon, at the first glimpse of the mountains, I start to feel Vietnam all around me. It almost makes me shudder. For me, the word “Vietnam” has never signified a country or even a foreign war. To me it has always been synonymous with my father and the undeclared war that raged within our home. The jaggedness of those mountains always triggers memories of the secret war that threatens to destroy the bulwark of the life I have carefully constructed for myself. It’s as if I’ve foolishly lifted my head above the rim of my carefully dug foxhole and given the enemy a clear shot.

He’d hit his head on some rocks. That’s why there was so much blood. Day Two 21 Everyone at school would feel sorry for me if I had a father who died of brain cancer.  Things that would simply annoy or mildly upset anyone else would be enough to throw him over the edge.  He kept it cleaned and loaded, so it was always ready. ” We used to try to stop him, but there was no use.  She wanted to get to heaven, and according to her beliefs there was no quicker way to hell than to commit suicide.  We didn’t talk about what was happening or how we felt.
