WHO KNOWS WHAT MONSTER YOU’LL AWAKEN
Guilt is a powerful affliction. You can try to turn your back on it, but that's when it sneaks up
behind you and eats you alive. Some people struggle to understand their own guilt,
unwilling or unable to justify the part they play in it. Others run away from their guilt,
shading their conscience until there's no conscience left at all.
Some say that our lives are defined by the sum of our choices. But it isn't really our choices
that distinguish who we are but our commitment to them. For some; commitment is like
faith, a chosen devotion to another person or an intangible ideal.
There's an old saying about those who can't remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
But those who refuse to forget the past are condemned to relive it. The past is a tricky thing.
Sometimes it's etched in stone. And other times it's rendered in soft memories. But if you
meddle too long in deep, dark things, who knows what monsters you'll awaken?
