Guess my parents' separation wasn’t a complete shock. Those two were destined to split up anyway.
There were times Dad got violent and fought with Mom. When it happened, us youngsters gathered together and wrapped around each other, each of us boo-hooing and bawling. It wasn’t until we became teenagers that we four eldest banded together to stop Dad from his violent, evil ways.
I don’t recall which of my siblings said, “Next time Daddy fights Mommy . . ., let’s jump him.”
The rest of us replied, “Yeah, let’s take him down!”
