This is apropos for many of us. It's such a powerful essay in only 16 pages. I've read it many, many times and there are certain lines, for example: "Until you learn to name your ghosts and to baptize your hopes, you have not yet been born; you are still the creation of others." that resonate for many of us in challenging times.
