Winner of StoryNosh: Courage, Emends features the deeply moving story of Erica’s conundrum: can she eulogize the father who forced her into a lifetime of lies?
Many of us have been faced with the seemingly impossible task of figuring out how to forgive someone who did something unforgivable. Or even more challenging…you try desperately to figure out how to forgive yourself for letting something unforgivable happen. Where is the line between victim and perpetrator? How much self-blame is too much? At what point do we just have to let it go?
No one has the answers, but perhaps Erica’s story will help provide you with some inspiration to free yourself of your guilt, to reconcile, or perhaps help you realize you are far from being alone in your struggles.
