    There are so many more stories out there, but people don't want to talk about it.  They don't want to remember, they don't want to draw attention.   Think of the most painful experience in your life, then magnify it by a million times, then ask yourself if you would want to talk about it.  So many untold stories.  It's a real shame, but I do get why the stories remain untold.  I just wish we could find a way to tell these stories without causing further pain to the people who had to live through that.

      Actually, my friend's father tells these stories all the time, in fact, you cannot stop him, but I think my friend, himself, appears to experience greater pain from hearing the stories than his father who lived those experiences. These stories should be told. Hmmm, ideally documented on video.
