Ron Goldman Validates Our Spirit,
This review is from: Circumcision, The Hidden Trauma : How an American Cultural Practice Affects Infants and Ultimately Us All (Paperback)
I am deeply grateful to Ron Goldman for his work. It is so important to us, as a society, to remember that we all start out as fragile, vulnerable individual people, worthy of protection from unnecessary harm. He helps us to recognise that regardless of the intent, the act of circumcision is perceived by the infant/child as terrifying and "overwhelmingly painful". We must not discount these early experiences, and be willing to accept the real possibility that negative and painful experiences endured in infancy, can affect the person throughout life.
