comments from website visitors:

I really like the picture entitled "I kept all of them." It frames for all of us who could not go to that jail, the vast mystery of the human spirit that can endure and continue even in the face of great suffering. And, on a personal level, it connects me with the act of writing, of people taking time to record their feelings and ideas. Of diaries and notebooks.

What I can say to my family, and my community, is that the most important thing is love, not money. Sometimes they say that they donít visit us because they have nothing to give us. We need love, not things. Even with money you can still feel alone inside.
