My Vision of Peace
Is it human nature to seek solace in times of our sadness and pain, and to offer comfort to others enduring the same?
Is this the same human nature that sees Schadenfreude, corruption, and murder as part of daily life?

Questions, always more questions impossible to answer, much like the unanswered questions of thousands of Chilean families whose loved ones were arrested, tortured, and made to disappear during the brutal repression of the Pinochet regime.

The poignance of the Muro de los Desaparecidos memorial in Santiago's Cementario General is grimly heartwrenching, but also illogically positive.

In the end, it was the indomitable strength of the human spirit that triumphed over malevolence, bringing a more rational existence to the Chilean people united in their achievement of, what is today, a peaceful society.
