You know if it's humanly possible, I'll get it for you. And if it ain't humanly possible, I'll die trying.
Your father's the only one who can help himself. Only he knows how to fight his demons.
You've got to do something to help dad!
Faster than the speed of light!
Why do you always encourage him?
How fast do you think I can make this car go?
Jeannette turned ten that Spring, and more than anything in the world, she wanted her father to stop drinking for her birthday present.
Hup, two, three, four!
Her dad dealt with alcohol withdrawals for days. Everyone else around the house acted as though it were normal. Jeannette just wanted her father to be ok.
You poor people! Are you okay?
We're not poor.
After recuperating, dad wanted the family to go on vacation for a little bit to the Grand Canyon. Everyone was thrilled about the idea. After they were packed and in the car, dad wondered just how fast he could go.
A terrible noise was heard from the back of the car, and smoke poured from underneath the hood. Dad tried to fix it, but was not successful. Mom wasn't happy. Dad tried to lift everyone's spirits, but eventually just grew quiet.
After walking for a couple of hours, the family stopped by a motel sign to hitchhike. No cars stopped until midday. A lady in a blue Buick stopped by them and rolled down her window, offering to give them a ride back home to Phoenix.
When the woman finally dropped them off, dad left. Jeannette waited for him on the front porch, wondering where he could've gone. He never came home.
