If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.

I can remember getting ready for school, watching my mother sit by the radio with her steaming coffee mug, eyes gazing wide and frightened as she listened to the news reports of the latest body pulled from the house.
