Your words speak volumes beyond your post, nothuman, and are deeply appreciated...by me, for sure, but no doubt others. My story is not the worst of them...mild compared to others I have heard and witnessed. And I do not have the regret of saying "I wish I had..." because I DID step up to make that difference.
This thread stands as a reminder to all that time DOES run out, and if we spend our time harboring resentment, we will reap irreversible regret. The number-one word you posted is "acceptance". It is remarkable how far that attitude gets us.
Brotherly blessings to you and yours, nothuman.
