 "I was astounded by what they were able to do, the courage that they showed, and with writing the book I wanted to bring some of their stories forward too, so people could really hear them. The purpose of the trial–one of the main purposes for me–is you’re really needing to re-weave the web of humanity that’s been broken, our community, our human community. It’s been broken so egregiously by horrible crimes. We want to stand with the victims, we don’t want to stand with the perpetrators. And they need to know that. They need to know that the people of the world recognize how seriously they’ve been harmed, and care about it." --Judith Armatta
