I feel as though this story should be shared with the world. This is an epic tale of love and hate, of fear and courage, of hope, of disappointment, of pain and suffering, but most of all, it is a tale of a family- of my family.
This story cannot be told in one sitting. It must be given to you as it was given to me, a bit at a time. The story is too great to write, or read in one sitting, so I will tell my tale over a period of days.
Thus begins My Cousin.
