These are deeply personal questions and I am a bit hesitant to make many answers public. I certainly am a revisionist with my own story and that is definitely good and fitting. The way I tell or see my story now differs a lot from 10 years ago. As for my memories well I was a religious sister and for me now that says that I was addicted to goodness and also vulnerable to abuse. My interpretation of most of my memories is continually shifting especially this year of major revisions… I have traveled a lot since childhood and this means I am open and curious about other cultures and peoples and the world for me is much bigger than America and what happens here.
Perhaps it will be easier to answer this once I have gone on and can come back.
