compassion, overcoming obstacles, recovery

Emblem 021: Initiation

Years later it’s completed. Decades after the terrible event you return to it and look again. That’s you in the water, all those years ago.

The wound you survived has been cleaned. Now it’s a door through which strength comes, and compassion.
