Once a man made reference to a story of depraved violence.

I said, ready-made, "I can imagine!"
He said "No, you can't."

This humbling exchange has reshaped my way of responding to such reports of suffering: "I can't imagine." It comes to this: if I must resort to cliché, at least I can be honest.
