Wisdom from someone who understands,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Future Without Forgiveness: A Personal Overview of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission (Paperback)
Desmond Tutu is a small fellow with a huge sgtreak of morality. He reminds me in a way of a real life hobbit! His deliberate attempt to set out facts from first hand accounts, to make sense of some of them, and to allow the reader to do the same provides a unique set of insights into human experience.
Big questions arise from reading this. Who suffers more, the tortured or the torturer? How does a maimed society move on? How can the children grow up to a better world? What must not be lost when the hardest lessons have been learned?
In grappling with the financial costs, the moral morass, the searing pain of a national societal disaster Tutu offers us all the chance to learn from the failings and the recoveries made under extreme commuity stress.
