Love Beyond Fear...

Barbara Chester, a psychologist, who directed
the first U.S. center for rehabilitation of torture victims in
Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1997 wrote:
"Torture is an act that defies the boundaries of language. We reserve the
thought to express an anguish deeper than pain. Ultimately, however,
working with torture survivors has taught me that the fact of pain beyond
pain leaves only the hope of uncovering a calm, healthy, and entire soul
within a distressed and devastated body that if there is pain beyond pain,
there is also tranquility beyond reason, faith beyond injustice and love
beyond fear."
(Written in an unfinished book, Mercy Has a Human Heart,
halted by her death at age 47 from cancer).

They Did Not Realize
