This talk is about what it means to learn to sit in uncomfortable places that can't be defined, easily solved or quickly rectified. It is about listening to stories of personal horror as a means of activism. The more we face the stories that have no end or solution, the better we become at living and seeing the world as it is. In that honesty, we can begin to heal.
