I have to admit that I have rarely encountered such reserve in putting pen to paper as I have since January 2011. During recent months I have kept on writing scattered notes every now and then. Whenever I was finished with a short article, another dramatic event, massacre or killing occurred. This led me to stop writing at once. The overwhelming events affected me by triggering a deep resistance to writing, let alone publishing, as if the written word could have been a direct betrayal of the lived experience (Figure 4.1).
