“The Silence of Trauma & Addiction, Confession of a Child Soldier.”
My message calls people up to be able to live from a place of love, for themselves, their friends, their family, and especially for strangers. Reconnecting with yourself and those around you. I would love to see people really see the people that sit beside them. To go home and love more, to be more grateful, for others to see other people as human beings. I want people to live with love, no matter what is going on in their world. Let’s set examples by living with love, being vulnerable, and expressing feelings of love, kindness, and gratitude. That is what will make the world a better place to live in.
Be the change you wish to see in the world. Do Not Give Up Now!
