I don't think Abraham's family died? From what I recall of the flashbacks, Abe's wife and kids saw him kill a man who was threatening them, and his wife and kids became afraid of him. That's why they weren't there when Abraham woke up, and left the "Don't look for us" note. Right?

It's my fucking war story, and I will tell it until I die and then, lo, Ken Burns shall tell the tale of my son's birth, and you shall weep from my sacrifice. » 9/19/14 9:11pm 9/19/14 9:11pm

My father was emotionally abusive, and on a couple occasions physically abusive. I have been out of his house for 10 years, but I made one casual comment about the abuse to my sister and, sure enough, I got a call from my parents. My mom denying the abuse (which she never witnessed), my dad lying and distorting the… » 9/09/14 2:30pm 9/09/14 2:30pm
