The first words anyone from my family can remember me saying were in a seedy little bar in Barcelona, Spain.

It was the summer of 1968.

I was three years old.

My father died the year before. He was 43 years young and, like JFK, he was a handsome man who would never age because of a sad fate he couldn’t foresee.

My mother was left alone to raise 9 kids ranging from 15 to myself—the youngest—at two.

“The people’s silence is a tyrant’s greatest advocate. The less captives talked, the less they knew; the less they knew, the more they feared; and the more they feared, the more easily others could manipulate them to their own ends, the more easily the captives could be controlled.”
John Kramer, Blythe

“To be free, you must think. There is no way to follow blindly and to be free.”
John Kramer, Blythe

“Too much reason limits man to the physical world and blinds his imagination to the greater things that may be. But too much faith blinds him from curing the human suffering in this world. Men with too much faith accept suffering; they expect it and even seek it out.”
John Kramer, Blythe
