Trying Not to Drown
by V. M. Franck
On a rainy night while his neighbors watched Billy Graham on television, my brother Ken stood outside their living room window, raised his hunting rifle and fired. Four victims and two houses later he was arrested for murder, thrusting my family and me into horror. Viewed through time-laced lenses this is an honest account of what happened to him, my sister, our loving parents and especially me.
