The holidays are approaching! You can just smell the collard greens and deep fried turkey; hear gravely old gospel songs sung with family followed by good old fashioned story telling around the fire. This is the perception of a prefect southern family setting. But in my book “Why Ruin Another Life” the southern experience is totally different. The harsh realities of the not so visible are revealed by a disturbing story of a broken family and neglect. Life isn’t always as it is portrayed.
