Jackie’s fear has since faded, but it lurks and swells unpredictably, in waves of silent terror that can knock her back at any moment. Fear was a constant stealth companion
When does the fear go away? Does it ever?

Well everyone is different, but the Columbine kids are 20 years out, and for most of them it gradually faded. Many were still a wreck at the 5-year mark.

Heather Morris shared a note and highlight from
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather   Morris
Dedication To the memory of Lale Sokolov. Thank you for trusting me to tell your and Gita’s story.
Cilka is also mentioned many times in the quoted passages. I have been asked on countless occasions when talking and in the thousands of emails I have received ‘what happened to Cilka’. It only seemed fitting that I should tell you what happened to her. Cilka’s story is now told in my next book – Cilka’s Journey. How did this 16-year-old girl survive not one but two imprisonments of the most evil, horrific kind. Not only survive but live a long happy life. From people who knew her for many decades I am told she was a loving, compassionate, funny woman who loved, and was loved in return. You ...more

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power, but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation, but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable, then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap, however, is self-rejection. As soon as someone accuses me or criticizes me, as soon as I am rejected, left alone, or abandoned, I find myself thinking, "Well, that proves once again that I am a nobody." ... [My dark side says,] I am no good... I deserve to be pushed aside, forgotten, rejected, and abandoned. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the "Beloved." Being the Beloved constitutes the core truth of our existence.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“The final portrait is often furthest from the truth.”
