Michael Royal Posted about 2 years ago Joshua Prager: In search of the man who broke my neck An inspiring story but also an uncomfortable one. I wonder how I would have reacted in your position if placed in the same room. while listening I tried to 'walk in your shoes' but found it challenging I must admit. Perhaps 21 years has given you a perspective that 20 minutes cannot hope to replicate! My instincts were telling me to rationalise with Ahbid (sp) to try to see if he could understand how his actions had profoundly impacted the lives of others, one of whom does not have a life. But that is possibly one of your points. Each of us has our own perspective even if it does not seem truthful to us. It is not just about us being able to convince the other person our reality is right. It is about accepting and understanding that it is up to the other person to determine their own view of reality (as do we of our own view of reality) and also accept that their reality (and ours) may or may not change over time.
