“The past gives you no justice. Sentences are passed. But that doesn't mean you get justice. You can stand there forever and rail and say, 'Someone has to pay. I want what was taken from me.' But you're just going to get silence coming back at you. The past doesn't pay. We pay. And we're all free to decide when we've had enough.”
Michael Hainey, After Visiting Friends: A Son's Story

“Fear is the trick of the enemy. And your enemy comes in many robes. But he has only one face. You know his face. You've seen it many times. You need not fear it. In your heart, you know you will triumph and you will defeat your enemy with the one weapon that you have inside you that he cannot touch--truth.”
Michael Hainey, After Visiting Friends: A Son's Story
tags: fear, truth

“And yet--we wonder.

What if how we are told it happened is not how it happened? What if the story we have been told is just that? A story. Not the truth.”
Michael Hainey, After Visiting Friends: A Son's Story
