When Louis McShane finally began to speak about what he had seen and experienced fifty years earlier, he discovered an echo. Others had been there, too, and he began to sleep at night.

When people exhibit the signs of invisible emotional scars, there may be a story that needs to be told to a compassionate and concerned listener.
