Family tragedies are like a sticker that appears too often in an album. Families stage small-scale global disasters. This has been said a lot of times. The wonderful thing is everybody knows. And still, here we are: doing the same again and again, like stickers that appear too often. Let me show you the full collection of stickers:
Sticker No. 1: There’s a suicide in every family.
Sticker No. 2: There’s a case of cancer in every family.
Sticker No. 3: There’s a case of sexual abuse in every family.
Sticker No. 4: There’s at least two, even three, people struggling with alcohol in every family.
Sticker No. 5: There’s a case of domestic violence kept in the dark in every family.
Sticker No. 6: There’s someone who spends money on whores in every family.
Sticker No. 7: There’s someone who is a closeted gay in every family.
Sticker No. 8: There are things that should remain unsaid in every family.
