So, I told everything I wanted in the header. I got a copy of the original English-language book. I am reading it so passionately in the Moscow metro that I sometimes miss my stops...

Gotta love it. I am on page 89 now. Thanks for recommending it for reading, gents.

Alexey

When you feel all alone and unhappy, turn to you Inner Child and talk to Him.
You will see He can comfort you like nothing else!

It is a great book, Alexey. I bought the movie a few weeks ago and enjoyed it as well as the book.

I have also downloaded and seen the movie, Eddie. I liked it very much!

I am now on the America part of the book. Still enjoying it a lot.

Have them both, Alexey. Find the story quite triggering in a place or two, but like you I also find the story very riveting.

It is triggering, yes.

As it happened, my wife and I were seeking out a video last night and we picked out The Kite Runner. Had no idea really other than about 2 boys growing up in Kabul.

I found the movie to be very heart wretching at times. More from the silence of the main charater. My heart was torn with the pain he was suffering.

Was scared at first when we saw the warning about CSA... I must admit it did bring up some associated pain, however I surprised myself with how well I took it. Perhaps with the help of all of you here and doing the T work it is starting to pay off.

I have heard it said that "We will not shut the door on the past, but we will find how it can be used to help others.."
