After seeing the movie ”Incendies”, which deals with secrets, I started thinking about my own secrets and why I hold them.   In the past, my secrets were generally about not saying what I would like, because of the fear of reprisals and repercussions. Keeping quiet because of these things did a kind of violence to my psyche.  When I think of Anita Hill, the High School cheerleader in Silsbee Texas and now the New York Hotel maid who spoke up I am so am impressed with the bravery of these women.
