Without Family You Have Nothing Quotes

This is what makes me crazy in this family, Dad. I dont care that you hit us. I really dont. Thats over and theres nothing any of us can do about it. But I cant stand it when I state a simple fact about this familys history and Im told by you or Mom that it didnt happen. But youve got to know, Dad, and Im saying this as a son who loves you, that you were a shit to your kids. Not all the time. Not every day. Not every month. But we never knew what would set you off. We never knew when your temper would explode and wed have the strongest shrimper on the river knocking us around the house. So we learned to be afraid without making a sound. And Mom was a loyal wife to you, Dad. She would never let us tell a soul that you were hitting us. Most of the time, she was like you and would simply tell us it didnt happen the way we remembered it.
