I had a flash memory of sitting with my terminally ill grandmother, and begging her for her secrets of our family history. I knew tidbits and thought she hid the rest out of shame or to protect the bad men. Now, I wonder if she was protecting the past or the future. Maybe she didn't want to poison her grandchildren's minds or burden them. Maybe she needed to carry those secrets to her grave so we wouldn't carry them in our lives. I love a story that gives a person insight like that. a story that changes my story about myself, experiences, someone else or even the world.
