Margie Woke up 11/7/17…..

That day will be seared into my mind till the day I die… I can even tell you the time of day when I started telling Mike about Big Springs, Texas… and the rest as the old cliché goes… is history… 

It is ironic how the murder of 26 people in a small Texas church, was the trigger for waking Margie up after 50 years of abuse by her parents… 

When I stood in mom’s kitchen and she confirmed my suspicions about the missing memory… that was 2010… and when she turned her back on me as we drove away… I wonder what message she was trying to send… I had already gotten the message before the age of 2… all she did was show my sister-in-law, what kind of woman she really was… now that was priceless… seeing the expression on her face as mom turned her back… still laugh about it now… it was just perfection…. wonder if she ever picked her jaw up off the ground… the sister that is…

Then my sister started reaching out and I can only figure it’s because mother encouraged her or made comments that got her motivated to reach out, but then, that begs a question, WHY???

She hadn’t done it before, in fact, I never heard from any of my siblings or parents, unless…. they needed my brain and that is a true story that Mike can back up with 24 years of marriage and watching them in action….

I know the memories they do not want me to remember… once Margie started waking up, it was all just a matter of time, before everything was viewable…

Now I keep saying I don’t remember anything new… well… that’s not exactly 100% honest…. remember, I am working on a book, can’t give all the juicy stuff away…..

Our return to the mainland, will have a important role to play… the return to Big Springs, Texas and the house we lived in… it is still standing… I goggled it… funny how I can remember the address 50 years later….. doc is probably right about the eidetic stuff….

Will I write about any of the new memories that have come forward… not here… no, those will go in the book…. I have given my family ample time to own their behavior and just like Trump they are doubling down… because to own your behavior… means you are an adult and you are not guided through life by religion or anything else… but what is right and wrong with every action you take….

That takes humanity, and there is so little of it left….

Margie was born into a typical christian military family... Her story is anything but typical... Domestic violence, rape, attempted murder and all done while my dad served in the U. S. Air Force and they buried the truth... then my own children impacted by Air Force cover up while I am active duty.... Rape, Attempted murder, domestic violence and discrimination in the name of the United States Government... and it is still happening as I write... just look at Trump, Kavanaugh and Thomas.... Circle of Silence is no more....
