ÉCOLE POLYTECHNIQUE DE MONTRÉAL
DECEMBER 6, 1989
14 GUN SHOTS, THEN A 15TH.
FAMILIES… CLOSE ONES… ALL OF QUEBEC…
…and a mother—broken, too.
Monique Lépine, Marc’s mother.
Sit down with her. Let her tell you about her last
30 years and answer questions she still has not been asked.
How does one recover after having fallen apart?
What to do… now? How can one, through it all, choose life?
Who can make one’s heart continue to beat?
From mourning till acceptation, from reconstruction till
invites us to experience these healing stages,
individually as well as collectively.
In 1989, my son committed a demented act that brought 14 families, as well as these young girls’ close ones, to suffer. Quebec society has also been ostracized by this painful event. I, too, along with my loved ones, was shattered. In writing Reborn, I want to bring balance and give back a bit of hope to those who will read me, by giving them a spiritual legacy. God heals the broken-hearted and contrite that trust in Him. I would also like to express my gratitude to all those who have helped and prayed for me these last 30 years.
Have a good read!
