Their mom left their dad 6 years ago. she got sick of his drinking and beatings.
Kathy was sad. Raquel was glad.
After that, Kathy went through a series of affairs and married twice, haivng three children.
Raquel never married. She became career driven.

But Raquel knew her name meant lamb and that lambs really can't roar. She decided to forgive, to pray for him, to pray for the family.
But Kathy just went on drinking her bitter herbs.
