The Ugly Truth
"DEAR JOHN": Use these two words to start a letter. Use 100 ADDITIONAL words to say what you want to say to 'Dear John' in your letter.
News of your death couldn’t have reached me fast enough. Since remembering how you abused me as a child, all the conscious feelings of fear I had for you became clear. You cast me out of the family for revealing your ugly truth, labeling me as the liar. Yet no innocent father…a father who loved his daughter…would have responded in that manner.
The news may have been late in reaching me, but now I can breathe knowing you are no longer roaming this earth capable of harming another. I long ago disavowed you as my father. Hell surely awaits you.
