I feel very fortunate indeed that one of my posts has been re-published on The World Policy Institute‘s blog. Interested readers can find the post here. My essay discusses what I learned from six years of teaching survivors of torture in Toronto. A longer version of the post remains here at home on Breakfast in Scarborough.
It’s my hope that the reflective piece will raise awareness of the terrible emotional devastation that torture causes, often long after the trauma occurred. I wish to thank each one of my former students for reminding me that our collective humanity depends on treating each other with kindness and dignity.
