Year 1992 in American History
On January 12, 1992 in Honolulu, Hawaii, I was born into one of the most chaotic years in our history.

Frank was accidentally killed when he was hit by a car, but the man who hit him, John Favara, was mysteriously kidnapped and never seen again after the accident was viewed as accidental by the authorities. After becoming married, John attempted for a while to live a normal suburban life for the sake of his loving wife, Victoria,
