Hurricane Jerald: A Book On Forgiveness And Healing
Below is a true story, I know because it’s my story, it’s a book on forgiveness and healing. And Eventually, I find reconciliation with my abusive father. Growing up I lived in an unstable home. It brought me to a place of depression and anxiety. It took me years to get over everything. But even with finding my healing, there are little bits and pieces that like to come back.
Books on Forgiveness and healing are usually about family. And this book is about my relationship with my father. Inside of me was a missing piece, and it’d been gone so long, I didn’t even know it was gone. However, when my father passed away, that piece came home.
It was the last gift my dad gave to me.
I miss him every day, but I’ll see him again.

There are a lot of books out there, but my book on forgiveness and healing is a little different. First off it’s directly from the source. I’m the one who lived this life. The thought processes and reactions are mine, and it’s how I survived. My Book on Forgiveness and healing started as a way to let things go, to move on.
However, as I kept writing, I was amazed at how many other people experienced a similar life, and that terrifies me.
Hurricane Jerald is my story, and it’s a book on forgiveness and healing. I hope you enjoy it.
Hurricane Jerald A Book On Forgiveness and Healing: August 26th, 2017
The sun shined bright that day. I was driving to a meeting at a restaurant in my hometown. I rarely returned there, because I had painful memories and I didn’t want to remember. Feelings of failure and uselessness plagued the back of my mind in this city.
“Sterling, you can do this,” I told myself. It’s normal for me to talk with myself while driving. I’m pretty sure I’ve freaked out more than one motorist doing this on the highway. It’s how I process, and sometimes I need to hear my thoughts spoken out loud.
An intense feeling of terror came into my heart as I pulled into the parking lot. “18 years, God why am I doing this? Why are you bringing me into this?” There was no answer. “If I go through with this, will my family talk to me?” I sat in my car, hands on the wheel for a few minutes. “Maybe I should drive away? I can make up an excuse and deal with it later.”
Instead of driving away, I pulled the emergency brake on my car and opened the door. The walk across the parking lot was a long one. Almost like time had frozen, but I gained strength as I moved toward my fear.
This Reconciliation Came With A Stark Realization That I Might Be Hurt Again
Walking inside, I looked around. That’s when I heard the voice from the past. I could never forget it. “Sterling over here, I’ve already got a table.” It sounded happy and light-hearted. When I turned to my right, I was surprised. 18 years had passed, but the man looked the same. He had put on a few pounds, and his hair was white, but it was him. I’d recognize him anywhere.
“Hi Dad, it’s been a while,” and I sat there looking at the face of a man I almost killed.”
Hurricane Jerald, A Book On Forgiveness And Healing
Originally I wrote this story for myself. I wanted to make sense of my childhood trauma, and how I felt. My desire for writing this started when I was in my mid-20s and survived Hurricane Katrina. On one of my many trips down to the gulf coast, I was worried that I would forget all I had seen. Keep in mind it was only 3 months after the Hurricane landed.
So much was happening that I felt some documentation was required. I decided to stay up later (I wasn’t getting enough sleep anyway) every night. Because I wanted to document everything that I could. I feel that I made a good record of what happened, and what people went through.
This documentation eventually turned into a desire to write a book which eventually became Hurricane Jerald. (I have some hurricane stuff in it, but that’s mostly a metaphor) However I still want to post my short stories for Katrina, I think it’d be good to get those out in the public eye. There was a lot of tragedy, but a lot of human goodness at the same time.
You might read this and notice there are not a lot of Hurricane stories. I removed a lot of them because they generally pointed me in this direction. It became hard to add them once I started to focus on the relationship with my father. However, the Hurricane was important. It’s what made me realize that my heart was terrorized and looked like the outside.
