“I do know this. It's the things we run from that hurt us the most." –Brad Sturdevant”
Norma Johnston

“When we really love and are loved, we are no longer free to act as we please, because we can't shake off the knowledge that whatever we do affects those we love and who love us. This is what family means... Mutual love and responsibility, and the discipline of love.”
Norma Johnston, The Keeping Days
