18 Montebello Road -10:30 AM – In just 2 hours I’ve decided to reveal to some of my closest friends something that is probably best for me to keep quiet about. Why should I speak up about an issue that might cause some of these individuals to suddenly become distant to me? If I kept my mouth closed know one would every figure it out and I wouldn’t receive the questions directly and indirectly that I’m sure will come from this revelation. Yet something deeper is driving me to speak up and now is the time I believe I must. Hopefully my fears will not come true and instead open up a new world of greater understanding and empathy for those long forgotten.
