“We who do the ignoring and forgetting oftentimes do not perceive it to be violence, because we do not know we do it. But sometimes we deliberately ignore and forget others…when those others fight back by demanding to be seen and heard –

"– as refugees sometimes do – they can appear to us like threatening ghosts who fates we ourselves have caused and denied.”
