This word collage portrays the schism of this issue.
On one side: anger, horrified, silenced, let down, confused, rejected, upset, heart-broken, lost, horrible, marginalized.
On the other side: out, searching, giving voice, learning, loved, accepting, changing, hopeful, strength, standing up.
Between the two sides: fear… conflict, Great Divide, Schism, seperation, …Fear… Fear… Misinformation.
Connecting one side to the other is a bridge… of hope.
