The Death of George the Duck: A Reason Not to Turn Away

The Death of George the Duck: A Reason Not to Turn Away

Ratings: (0)|Views: 12 |Likes:
Published by Jane Gilgun
The death of George the Duck, late of River Walk in San Antonio, Texas, USA, was a tipping point for me. Never again will I hold back publishing the many stories I have written about what perpetrators say about the violence they commit. I believe that if we turn away from what violence really is, we are protecting perpetrators and are implicated in violence. Yes, survivors must take care of themselves and avoid re-traumaztizing themselves by reading these stories. On the other hand, the rest of us have to find the courage to take it in and stand up to the forces that shape people who commit violence.
