Strawberry Letter: Fraternity Wars
Dear Steve and Shirley,
I’m writing you this letter for your help. My father and I have been very close since I was a little boy. He has always cared for and helped me in every way in my life. My mother died when I was 5 and he put his life on hold and raised me by himself. He is the greatest father. Here’s the problem. All the males in my family are Ques, going back to the forties. I went against the bond, Omega is a great organization, but it was not in my heart. I just pledged Sigma last semester. When he found out he disowned me. I tried to explain and that’s when he beat me black and Blue. My uncles, his blood brothers, went over to the house with me and it took all 3 of them to pull him off of me. He said he never wants to see me ever again. That hurt me to the core. Please help. He has totally disowned me. I’m 19 and afraid that I will never see my father again.
