6. is there any doubt?

I'm the child of Holocaust survivors..Auschwitz..this is what that sign means to me: my mother's screaming night terrors, a kitchen counter ablaze with memorial candles on Yom Kippur each one representing a mother, father, sister, brother, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, cousin...a mother paralyzed with fear at the sight of a train, learning to "count" on the numbers tattooed on my parents forearms...a mother in and out of psychiatric hospitals (survivors's guilt attempted suicides), parents glued to a tv during holocaust documentaries in hopes that they could recognize a family member...this is the Republican Party, hate for the "other" out of the shadows and into the White House...
