Shoshana Garfield writing for The Guardian has a wonderful article on the faith of people who have been tortured. The message is clear:
"I believe that they are telling the truth.... beyond displaying typical impacts of deep trauma, 100% of the clients who reported such miraculous interventions in my clinic room were perfectly sane. I can therefore only come to the professional conclusion that these reports are, to the best of our knowledge, generally true."
This article is fantastic. It is very short, and although you will finish it in a few minutes the uplifting feeling that comes from reading it remains long after you are done.
