I knew if I came out from under that bed that all chaos would happen. I stayed under the bed for a very long time. The police and my father finally convinced me it was safe to come out from under the bed. I told the horrific story to my father. My life from that moment on changed forever. My family was forced to move. My parents divorced. My mother became a single mother of six children. In the 1960s, a divorced woman was labeled with a capital S (Scarlet).
So many experiences in such a short time of life. Many are unbelievable, but each one of it is true.
