    and got it through therapy that lasted into my 40's.  My father wasn't visible in my youth and it was very difficult growing up "alone."  

    When I met Javier, his future was focused around his difficult financial needs (and I was able to placate them, somewhat).  Yeah, he'd been abandoned but he never succumbed to emotions or pity.  

    Spiritually, he never lost a beat; he just knew he needed to get ahead, even if it would be on his own.  And he accomplished his logical goals in spades.  

    Perhaps I helped him most with the emotional issues...I had had practice, after all.

    Guns don't kill people but there's always one there at the time of death.
