Une réflexion sur “Your Thursday Briefing

  1. Words like « healing » are presently used by those who fanned the flames of division even to the point of insurrection. Even now their supporters plot more violence, and they use words like ‘healing’ and ‘unity’ to stave off any consequences for their own actions.

    One does not heal an abusive relationship. One begins healing only after getting well away from the abuser.
