This author has written with amazing clarity and awareness. Doctor Rosaleen O`Brien describes Benazir Bhutto`s path through life as courageous, awe inspiring, and heroic. When Benazir`s father was put to death, that would have stopped most young daughters in their tracks, this book takes us along a road that eventually saw a young educated and intelligent lady cut down.
What cause can one have that they are ready to lay down their life for which could be greater than seeking democratic rights for all, old, young, rich and poor? This book readily shows in verse the price we pay for what we believe in. Through poetic eyes this author shares Benazir`s hopes, dreams and fears as you are invited to read about the short life of one of our most important leaders who sadly is no longer with us. This is not the first book to reveal Benazir`s innermost thoughts, many books have been written on this subject, indeed many more books will be written describing how she has lost several family members who believed in establishing a democratic system where all can use free will. Is Pakistan now ready to endorse Benazir Bhutto`s ideals and take the country onwards so as to engage with other developed nations bringing about a possibility of enhancing trade agreements while instituting and applying democratic rights Then perhaps never again can it be said that there is a fight going on in Pakistan to establish democratic rights and no longer can it be said that it is a cause to die for. Doctor Rosaleen O`Brien has visited and lived in Pakistan and she hopes democracy in Pakistan can act as a paradigm for other governments to follow.
About the Author
I have been in receipt of trauma counselling since 1999 on a daily basis,at times speaking till the early hours of the morning.Support from my trauma Counsellor helps me to come to terms with accepting that what has happened to me cannot now be changed. I cannot ever forgive those who had a vicarious liability to look after me and failed. As a result of being locked away for some years all because we were poor has brought certain limitations to my day to day life. Writing is a form of therapy and allows me to be free to be the person that I want to be, and should have been my birthright. Through writing I can reach out to others who may have had such an unfortunate experience as myself . Daily flashbacks can be upsetting and I fill my life with things to do so as to block them out. Day to day life can be exhausting and coping mechanisms that I learnt in order to survive have not helped me in the outside world. God help all fellow survivors and perhaps one day Ireland will accept the terrible price we paid. Shame on all you right thinking residents in Ireland to allow the government and Catholic Church to ignore harm done to me and many others who are either dead or too ill to tell their story. Thanks to Chipmunkapublishing I have been able to confront my demons and a Big Thank you to Reatha my trauma counsellor without her I would not be here today writing about my stolen life.
