The Book “a recollection of reconciliation”
This memoir captures moments in my life thus far which made me who I am today.

I was baffled at the time of seeing this video since I still couldn’t comprehend what was happening but it felt like I was looking through a portal in time, seeing my past. My father soon goes into a hospital room with my mom and two nurses in the room with her. A bunch of “stuff” happens, and moments later the video captures a tiny baby crying and soaked in blood as the baby was carried to a table where the nurse gave my dad the honor of cutting my umbilical cord. Happy to inform by this part of the video, I was definitely grossed out and walked out of my mom’s room with more questi...
