I AM reading a news story about women captured by, then freed from, Boko Haram. The women tell their stories.
The dissonance between the report and the reality screams.
One woman: I survived, but my child was lost. Then, the story moves on to the next paragraph.
Wait a minute! How can we simply move on to the next paragraph after this statement, my child was lost? How much agony is contained in that statement? Is it to be glossed over — then, the next paragraph — just because hundreds of other women were also captured by Boko Haram?
