Some get caught up specifically in bad things, perhaps their upbringings are to blame or maybe the individual could take all of the responsibility. When a society chooses what is to be socially acceptable, that limits relatives to only one kind of family and the object becomes destroying all other kinds. The 1950s was a time when technology wasn’t a big distraction from loved ones.

She suffered a lot of pain and she doesn’t want to relieve those moments, and break down to her children.

So when my first interview got deleted somehow from my phone I kind of had to force her to sit down and answer them again. I would say the questions I asked were pretty grueling because it is a sensitive topic.
