Hey! My name is Kristi Fahy. I am a freshman going to school for hospital administration. Thomas Worthington High School is where I graduated. In high school, I was a gymnast, and I wish I continued on through college. I love hanging out with friends and of course having a good time!
The essay by Scott Russel Sanders was a very deep, personal piece of work. A lot of his life, he knew his father as a monster, but they feared his exposure. "Father's drinking became the family secret. While growing up, we children never breathed a word of it beyond our four walls of our house." He wrote this essay for the sake of his children. Sanders knew the feeling of having an alcoholic family member, let alone his father, and if he could protect is own children from this, then he felt writing the essay was a good way of them becoming aware. It was very sad to understand how much his father's alcoholism affected their family. It seemed as though their lives revolved around this family secret. If this was ever an issue in my family, I don't know how I would ever be able to handle it. Hopefully the secret ends with Sanders' father.
