Violence is forever...
It festers in the soul like a cancer passing to the spirit of one's children and grandchildren. Long after nations have settled their differences, and peace proclaimed, memories live in the heart and soul. Peace to the individual spirit is much harder won than that for any nation. Healing is painful and sometimes it seems the most unreachable dream, but in strength and caring, one person, one step and one hand at the time it is possible.
