When I was a four, my father brutally beat my mother...with a broomhandle, no less.

A neighbor called my mother's sister.

Who told my uncle.

When my uncle discovered what had occurred, he came to our apartment, kicked in the door and beat my father to within a centimeter of the end of his life.

My uncle then gathered my mom, sister and I up, got all of our clothing, whatever money my father had on him and move us in to his apartment.

We never lived with my father again.

And my father NEVER even remotely came CLOSE to putting his hands on my mother.

I'm glad my uncle didn't kill my father.

But I'm ALSO glad he ALMOST killed him.
