Dear Teera

Well it took me about six months to get started reading, carefully reading and re-reading your story! It was so amazing, uplifting and a deep lesson on strength of character, moving on with forgiveness and without bitterness...Thank you for sharing this with me and all your readers.

As the story unfolded, I had so many different feelings... gratitude that you were such a wonderful secretary and worker at B C L Amparai and that we had a good working relationship; joy that I was a part of your story (albeit a small part); nostalgia as I relived and remembered much of the horrific incidents in Amparai, I always remember Chandra as a gentle, quiet and well mannered person, I therefore found it difficult to come to terms with what happened; thankful that I was able to make a small contribution towards assisting you during those unforgettable days; horror as the subsequent sad events unfolded; admiration of your resilience, incredible will to keep going under all circumstance, care for your kids and loved ones and your deep faith and trust in God; tearful joy while reading about your reuniting with the scenes of Sri Lanka & it’s people on your return trip and your beautiful ability to forgive and move on; admiration of your generosity in raising funds and helping the “Welcome House”. 

Patrick is obviously a fine young man & I feel I know him now through your words about him at the end of the book. He has given a great and perfect sketch of you...my warm wishes to him. My sincere thanks for the signed copy of your book, with your beautiful words to Heather and me. We are deeply overjoyed that we were a part of your life in Amparai and that we have been able to re-connect after so many years and be in touch via email.
Much love from Heather & me to you & your beautiful family (the photos in the book were great)

God bless you

Arthur Jayasundera
