A Lifetime Of Secrets












The newest addition to Frank Warren's Postsecret books has been released. This one's called A Lifetime Of Secrets. Some of the confessions in here are hard to read. Not because they're so shocking (which some are), but because some of them hit so close to home. And I'm sure it's the same for anyone who reads this. What's different about the way this book is organized is that it starts with secrets (anonymously) submitted by young kids and teens, and works it's way all the way up to the older generation, hence the title A LIFETIME Of Secrets. Want to try and understand the baggage some kids are carrying? Flip through the first section of the book. Want to understand why your parents don't have it all together? Check out the confessions of some parents. Since the book covers the different age groups, it helps to understand other people more, as well as ourselves. You never know if some of the submissions are by people who made up their secrets. But since you can't tell, the words and images that stare at you on each page have something to say to our lives.
