I was a small child when I first heard the name of a man who had entered my life at birth, unheralded, unannounced, and unrecognized. For years even my parents were unaware of his presence for he hid behind a cloak of invisibility. He was the omnipresent guest who was never seen, and while my parents knew his name, they had no idea of the power he exerted over our lives.
