I dreaded it, not school-but the nighttime. The sick feeling was always there, kind of like having a bad cold, but it was in the pit of my stomach instead, and it got worse at night. I put on my pajamas and got into bed. I double-checked the alarm to make sure it was set for 5:30 AM. Brutus, my little Pekingese Pomeranian mix, who was also my best friend, jumped onto the bed and snuggled close beside me. I laid there in the dark-waiting-I knew what was coming. It wasn't long until I heard a commotion coming from the living room, doors slamming and things dropping to the floor. My body involuntarily flinched as the high-pitched sound of my mother's voice broke the Silence. Each word was slow and deliberate as if she was trying to stab my father with each word. ' son of a bitch!' Then I heard my father's deep voice as he yelled back. 'Go screw yourself, I didn't touch it! Why don't you just drag yourself over to the liquor cabinet and get another bottle!' I flew out of bed and ran for the closet. Brutus knew the routine; he was already ahead of me. I pulled the door shut and sat on a little shelf. Brutus jumped onto my lap. Sensing my fear, he whimpered and started licking my face. I kept a blanket in the closet and pulled it around us. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Aug 28, 2014

The Anonymous People is the groundbreaking independent film about the emerging Addiction Recovery Advocacy Movement released last year.
