Autumn in New York always brought dread to Frank Dioguardia, a New Jersey college professor.
He would relive his father's death from decades ago and begin counting the days until he lived longer than his father.
This year would be different, causing him to realize that after 30 years of marriage and three children he had been inhabiting the earth for the wrong reasons.
Frank's epiphany came once he crossed his moral code by committing a violent act on a stranger during the Columbus Day parade and became the focus of an exploitative media frenzy.
Both events, through soul searching and action, freed him from his past forever changing the course of his life.
Shared Sorrows is the story of love, in it many forms, and redemption.
