    • Imagine the strength it took for each generation in that family to endure and survive when that violence is *all* you know. There were no other intimate examples of a healthy functioning family. It carried over from one generation into the next. I can imagine by the time it touched L.Y.’s daughter that it was “normal.” It’s a devastatingly painful legacy, and no one wants their children to go through it, but they didn’t know. What is good about this story is that L.Y. stood up and said enough was enough. She wasn’t going to allow her daughter to teach her granddaughter this way of life (if they made it that far.) And she broke the silence for every generation in her family. Poignant example of the power of silence and the power of breaking that silence.
