genuine healing…

as individuals we can take ownership of our own healing to transform our pain, to relieve our suffering. however, it seems to me that systemic, societal, or collective harm requires acknowledgment of the harm done and some form of accountability in order to heal. we’d rather slap a band-aid on where major surgery is needed and then move on. it may be easier, but it isn’t healing.

may we scrap the band-aids and be willing to do the difficult work needed.
