... and it is one of the most amazing pictures I have seen in the days of my life dear Ian. Could be set perfectly on the front cover of a leaflet for peace-building. Love it.

I am only just now reading your story Ian.... people like this mother are the mrtyrs of our time and those who make mankind become a better species. I deeply admire her. I don't know if I had such strength ....
I concur, and it gets a nomination for the images that I am considering enlarging and printing to be hung in the gallery in our new home - when it is built. How I would love to have it hanging when you first walk in. It has been used in a peacebuilding prospectus, but on the inside not on the front cover.
I too love the symbolism. ... and the story that I shared fits it perfectly.
I don't want for you to be a martyr, but to live and celebrate peace. However when martyrs do suffer, they often emerge with a whole new perspective on grace, and hope and peace. On Forgiveness is one book I think I must write before too much longer.
And that may require your input.
Warmest regards from Brisbane. We're home again... sort of for an eternity.
Start writing the book TODAY dear Ian. Whatever input I can provide (?), I certainly will. And see the wonderful picture hanging on that wall.... never stop beliving in dreams dear one.

Much has been written about forgiveness on personal and interpersonal levels, but when we step up to institutional (sub-systemic) and cultural (or systemic levels) it is much more limited. Yet there is much experience and still much to learn at these levels. I think this is true for every nation. We must have the political will to learn the lessons and apply them creatively. The world needs to waltz. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
