In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it's a men's issue
A paradigm-shifting perspective ... some people will say, "Well, he needs sensitivity training." And other people will say, "Well get off it. You know, that's political correctness run amok, and he made a stupid statement. Move on."
My argument is, he doesn't need sensitivity training...
He needs leadership training...
because he's being a bad leader, because in a society with gender diversity and sexual diversity and racial and ethnic diversity...
you make those kind of comments, you're failing at your leadership.
If we can make this point that I'm making to powerful men and women in our society at all levels of institutional authority and power, it's going to change, it's going to change the paradigm of people's thinking...
And one of the ways to do that is to say there's an awful lot of men who care deeply about these issues. I know this. I work with men, and I've been working with tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of men for many, many decades now. It's scary, when you think about it, how many years. But there's so many men who care deeply about these issues...
but caring deeply is not enough.
We need more men with the guts, with the courage, with the strength, with the moral integrity to break our complicit silence and challenge each other and stand with women and not against them.
By the way, we owe it to women. There's no question about it...
But we also owe it to our sons.
...owe it to young men who are growing up all over the world in situations where they didn't make the choice to be a man in a culture that tells them that manhood is a certain way. They didn't make the choice. We that have a choice have an opportunity and a responsibility to them as well.
I hope that, going forward, men and women...
can begin the change and the transformation that will happen so that future generations won't have the level of tragedy that we deal with on a daily basis.
Not so much, the candy...
From a memoir's perspective, our author, a lifelong writer, courageously takes us on her journey.
Her education opens doors to opportunities made irresistibly intriguing by distant cultures. Then unforeseeable pain comes with the abduction of her children and shattering relationships. As so richly detailed from her journals, a harrowing search ensues, first to reunite her family, then continues towards emotional mending.
In her story, we find the hope to live through the most devastating of circumstances and then beyond. She creates the wisdom-seasoned forgiveness born out of compassion for others and, in no small part, a compassion for self.
