When your father is the BTK serial killer, forgiveness is not tidy

Few people are the sons or daughters of serial killers. But psychologists say all of us suffer trauma in life. How we respond defines us. One key, as Kerri Rawson’s psychologist said later, is who we have in our lives and how good they are at guiding us. Another key, as Kerri herself would say someday, is whether we can forgive the seemingly unforgivable.

So many words have been written and so many stories have been told that many of us are tired of hearing how the monster hunted people and hurt children and dressed in women's underwear. But one story has not yet been told. And it mentions the monster hardly at all.
