a flower can bloom

“I have come from a shell to a seed and from a seed to a small flower.” That’s the testimony of someone who was tortured—and has been blessed with therapy and rehabilitation.

Tomorrow is the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture (or for short, the International Day Against Torture). I’ve mentioned this day in previous years.

What a joy it will be when we finally say “no” to this reprehensible practice and actually mean it.
