“The ordinary response to atrocities is to banish them from consciousness. Certain violations of the social compact are too terrible to utter aloud: this is the meaning of the word unspeak- able. Atrocities, however, refused to be buried. Equally as powerful as the desire to deny atrocities is the conviction that denial does not work. Remembering and telling the truth about terrible events are prerequisites both for the restoration of the social order and for the healing of individual victims.”
— Judith L. Herman, MD, Trauma and Recovery
A meaningful quote, a timely poem……
we learn immense life lessons and we vow to seize the moment,
create, soar, thrive…..
What is most uncomfortable… Accept it completely.
Allow the feeling to overcome You.
Do not fear this Nor be afraid.
Rain or Shine. Learn to
Give love Always.
Though Youmust Accept sorrow Completely…
For in this
Will understand. You
Trust in this. I know
For this…feel… Unique…
Give all you have to give and more.
You will win
At life…and more.
Not at differences But at ways to create Similarities.
Don’t go chang’n From what makes you Unique
All the best…
