Rufina Amaya Continues to Inspire, a Role She Did Not Choose

Last night, I heard a portion of a story. As we know, story is powerful, and each of us has at least one to share that will impact listeners. Rufina Amaya, of El Salvador, was a survivor of an unfathomable tragedy during a civil war. Her one voice later bravely brought truth and redemption. I am deeply moved and so curious about her and the hours that ripped her life to pieces, only to be stitched back together in a way that over time brought light to a dark time. Somehow. Courage, almost crushed, inspires.
