True Reconciliation Doesn't Hide, It Exposes

Forgiving and being reconciled are not about pretending things are other than they are. It is not patting one another on the back and turning a blind eye to the wrong.  True reconciliation exposes the awfulness, the abuse, the pain, the degradation, the truth.

- Desmond Tutu, No Future Without Forgiveness (New York: Doubleday, 2000), p. 270.
