As long as the images of a childhood torn open by depraved criminals lingers in our souls, we are unable to write. Maybe, maybe…… Maybe, by next week we will be able to muster up some fragments to try to heal this injury. For now, a two week silence is far too little to express the collective and personal horror over what we read, and we don’t wish to apologise for this silence. And for the fact that we share a citizenship and humanity with the perpetrators, our collective responsibility for these events and many more, we can only express it in the words of another “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” Martin Luther King Jr.
