    It's strange when things that you've long forgotten come back suddenly. Tonight I was joking with my dad about him crying, and me comforting him, and suddenly a memory came back to me that I hadn't thought of in years. My grandfather (Opa) died a few years ago.

    not as ideal as what they seem.  Issues such as sexual abuse, mental illness, alcoholism, adultery, greed and restlessness, affect the lives of even those who appear to live the American Dream.  In F.
