Who Are We Kidding?

Just watched Sissy Spacek in Beyond the Call and am reminded that there are hurts we cannot hide. They must simply be held. Hurts like war or incest where the victims are innumerable must be made room for until we are able to end them. Making room does not entail the silence of complicity. But it does require a paradigm shift such as has yet to be seen. It requires those who do not consider themselves victims to take preventative steps as though they were about to be.
Thank you, Veterans, for serving in wars you did not have the luxury to declare or decline. Welcome home. Thank you, Survivors of other kinds. May you soon dwell in peace in homes worthy of you where the ones you love are not the enemy.
