I have just read "Violence is no way forward" in the issue of May 12 about former terrorist Christine Hewicker. What courage and humility she has, to tell her life story and to be traveling around her country in order to inform others so they can be awake and alert to the pull of hatred and anger: That is some turnaround from being behind bars to having your picture on the front of the Sentinel. At first I didn't think the article would be of much interest to me, but when I started reading it, I could relate myself (in a smaller way) to what she went through.

I attended a Christian Science Sunday School from a young age up until I was 20, and then I drifted away for about 15 years and even became anti-religion. For a number of years if anyone religious was near me, I would use swear words that I knew would offend them; however, I did notice that they did not react, which rather took the "bite" away. I tried to rob people of their happy marriages and relationships.
