Uplifting meditations designed for readers who have been victims of torture, abuse, and cruelty at the hands of other human beings. Written to bring hope and comfort to victims of domestic or partner abuse or child abuse, service members with PTSD, victims of torture in declared and undeclared wars and forced conscription, victims of sexual abuse and slavery, victims of unjust labor practices and genocide. This is not a book about retribution but about recognizing our individual and collective suffering. Once we become able to cherish and hold sacred our own and one another’s broken hearts, we stand to face our perpetrators as survivors. We learn that we are stronger because of our experiences. And perhaps we also learn to forgive.
