David Briola, Semi-Finalist in the 2010-2011 massmouth season, told us about feeling unsafe in his home as a boy. He remembered one day his father trying to force an apple down his mother's throat and, though he was only five years old, running to his mother's aid. He told us what it felt like to hold her as she cried and he cried too. But the violence continued. He told us of the night he realized that violence had found a home in his heart and how he knew then that he had to change his life. David took first place and again earned a spot in the Semi-Finals in the 2011-2012 massmouth season.
