jULY 6, 2019: 'The 800-Pound Gorilla in the Room" by David Busboom

Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EDST) July 6th, 2019  -- 00:30  A.M. (GMT) July 7th -- for a discussion of "The 800-Pound Gorilla in the Room" by  David Busboom.  The 800-pound gorilla is of course the embarrassing topic that everyone in the room knows something about but is reluctant to discuss in public.  It could be something like Uncle Fred's incarceration following his conviction for child molestation,  Mary's dropping out of high school to give birth to her love child, or as in this case, a special needs child in the family.  It's an interesting examination of the challenges faced by the family when faced with such a challenge.

The story is a recent offering of the Saturday Evening Post and is available on line at:   https://www.saturdayeveningpost.com/2019/06/the-800-pound-gorilla-in-the-room/
