This one was kind of hard for me. I could have asked my mother all the questions I wanted but I would have to wait 3 months to get the answers.... So I decided to ask my father the things I always wanted to know but was afraid to ask.... I am not afraid anymore, he died a year ago; My questions: -Why did you start drinking? -How can a father ignore his child for 13 years? -Did you ever make plans to stop drinking and change your life for the better? -Why did you hurt my mother? -What are you ashamed of? -Did you ever realize what effect your behavior had on me?
