There is healing, and moving on for some.
As you watch the video below, ponder
how over the years, as you have heard of various horror crimes, in particular those involving kidnapping and torture of children--
how much you wanted to know
that if ever a child was found, was saved--that she would be whole again, that s/he would be healed. Stronger than ever. That s/he would not be permanently wounded.
Elizabeth Smart, taken at age 14 at knifepoint from her bedroom, gave us some comfort
as she shared
factually, simply, graciously
with great insight and humble wisdom
her Moving On
and her confrontation with the criminal...
She has started a foundation--" I think one of the biggest ways to overcome any trial in life, to heal from any any kind of experience is by helping those around you --because by lifting those around you up
you end up lifting yourself up as well..."
here is the video
This is actually the moment many of us have waited for many times, for those we will never meet, for those we have prayed for. This is what by Grace we hope the recovery from monsters looks like.
