"I believe these stories exist because we sometimes need to create unreal monsters and bogies to stand in for all the things we fear in our real lives: the parent who punches instead of kissing; the auto accident that takes a loved one; the cancer we one day discover living in our own bodies. If such terrible occurrences were acts of darkness; they might actually be easier to cope with. But instead of being dark; they have their own terrible brilliance.. and none shine so bright as the acts of cruelty we sometimes perpetrate in our own families. —- Stephen King"
