Blog: Why Now? - 2017-01-05
It goes beyond the show trending on Twitter every week, many, many emails and messages on Facebook and handshakes in the supermarket from complete strangers. Most heartening is the number of people who are reaching out to tell their stories. Many have not been heard from before, and the stories are utterly devastating. Perhaps it is a measure of the level of devastation inflicted on people how long it takes for them to be able to talk about it. It is both heartening and heartbreaking to see how many have come forward, and continue to come forward. And it is my hope that many more will come forward.
It got me to thinking Why Now? Why have so many stepped into the light and why should everyone take the opportunity to do so now.
