David Brooks has written a beautiful piece about the courageous story of Clemantine Wamariya.
One paragraph sums up life for most of us, and makes Clemantine’s struggles our own:
“We work hard to cram our lives into legible narratives. But we live in the fog of reality.
“Whether you have survived a trauma or not, the psyche is still a dark forest of scars and tender spots.
“Each relationship is intricacy piled upon intricacy, fertile ground for misunderstanding and mistreatment.”
Clemantine is indeed an amazing woman who has survived traumas and lives in truth and with grace. Brooks could not have said it better.
