Seven billion people in the world. With that many people, there is no viewpoint . . . no matter how horrible . . . that does not exist somewhere. The guy you talked to actually said "sorry," which is more than you'd get from most. I'm glad it didn't bother you guys too much.
"As long as the child within is not allowed to become aware of what happened to him or her, a part of his or her emotional life will remain frozen . . . all appeals to love, solidarity, and compassion will be useless."
