Trauma to Triumphs

the true beauty in humanity

I think trauma really does confront you with the best and the worst.   You see the horrendous things that people do to each other, but you also see resiliency, the power of love, the power of caring, the power of commitment, the knowledge that there are things that are larger than our individual survival.   And in some ways, I don’t think you can appreciate the glory of life unless you also know the dark side of life”.

Children can Transform Trauma into Triumphs

  • The brain of the child has the potential to rewire, heal; and find safety and peace
  • The biggest factor in determining the future is the quality of the good people in a child’s life
  • The most powerful influence on children is witnessing kindness, compassion, and love.                           

The smallest acts of kindness  will re-instill hope, a sense of self worth, and faith in the world of a child
