“Forgiving and being reconciled to our enemies [is] not about pretending that things are other than they are. / It is not about patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong. / True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the hurt, the truth. / It could even sometimes make things worse. / It is a risky undertaking but in the end it is worthwhile, because in the end only an honest confrontation with reality can bring real healing. / Superficial reconciliation can bring only superficial healing.”
― Desmond Tutu
