Thank you. I don't know you. But I have thought of the both of you many, many times. I write poetry. (I often think of victims of crime--recently I wrote another poem about Goodman, Cheney, and Schwerner!) My poems often speak of the randomness in life, the unfairness. And when I finish I still see the randomness and the unfairness. Parts of your response are words I have written in poems and stories or said in lectures. I love knowing you are a forgiving individual. The perpetrator is not well. he should have had help ages ago. I am glad you can say you are in "a good place," not the same place, not the best place, but a "good place." Writing can sometimes bring us to a good place. Know I will think of you two. I shall continue to wish you well and say prayers for you. Time won't necessarily heal the pain, but I have learned that it sometimes lessens the pain.
