Colette, you and your experiences as revealed through your writing never cease to amaze me. When I first encountered you here on Medium you struck me as someone who read a lot, but didn’t share much about herself. But over time I’ve noticed that you have discreetly revealed bits and pieces of yourself here and there that would have missed had I not been paying attention. Your story is unfolding like a great play. A rich and poignant epic, as searing as it is beautiful.

The source of your passion for social justice and equality? I get it now, well, I understand a little better.

Thank you. Seriously. Seeing horror from the other side, a child’s innocence … if that doesn’t pierce and shatter the hardest heart, nothing will short of Christ himself.
