“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
“Could a ‘good enough’ mother lose custody of a child to a rela- tively uninvolved or abusive father. Must Custodially embattled mothers be viewed only as victims? Can such mothers also be viewed as philosophical and spiritual warriors and heroes? Grad- ually I came to view them as such. Under siege, ‘good enough’ mothers remain connected to their children in nurturant and non-violent ways. They resisted the temptation to use violent means to obtain custody of their children. This is one of the rea- sons they lost custody but they never disconnected.”
— Phyllis Chesler, Mothers on Trial
