8. This story isn't so much about gun violence, as much as a person possessed by the demon known as

Alcoholism.

I've know alcoholics, and they just aren't themselves when they're gone. Something else comes out, something malevolent and hurtful... hateful.

As far as the impact of domestic violence, I have experienced it firsthand, and while my story is not unique, I still bear the emotional scars. This story was very real to me... I understand it on a very visceral level.
