Strange faces, who affirm the experience of this pain together. Angry, contemplative, downcast, troubled. Some uncertain, others conscious, some loud, some quiet. So different and yet so alike in the one conviction that brings them all together: it is not all right to commit violence against children. It is not okay to look the other way. We are responsible for creating a place where children can grow to become mindful and aware people without losing their way along the path.
When fear and violence predominate, when no sound in the world is louder than the deafening silence, when solitude and seclusion become a warning to our existence – what are we to call ourselves then?
This is not a question.
This is the answer.
To the end.
