Words must be found

At the end of a review by Melissa Benn of a book about forgiveness after horrific murder, this quote:

Inevitably, it is Lucy Partington who haunts this narrative. But at its heart is also a consideration of the power of language. As the ever tenacious Partington asserts: “Words must be found. There must be something for all of us to learn from the profoundly shocking profanity of the murder … before it becomes buried under the concrete of fear, prejudice, or even worse, indifference.”

And it reminds why I do this work.
