    I can't hate anyone really because I lose interest. I just can't live with hatred. All I know is this anger I think is what keeps me going sometimes.

    Peter - Requiescat In Pace

    I think I see a way out of the problem now.  Those of you who read the two prior parts of this essay remember that my brother Peter and I were on such bad terms as children that even after he became a middle-aged adult I was still not able to forgive him.  And I...
