We Grew Up in Violence

My siblings and I grew up in violence.

Our experiences with violence shaped what we saw this election cycle and how we saw it.

Today, my just-younger sister and I wrote about this in “We Grew Up in Violence: Thoughts on the Changing of the Guard.” We hope you’ll read it … and know that we’re writing with love for our children and yours.

    My father often said ‘there is none so blind as he who refuses to see’. Sadly he was right.

      So true. I wish more folks would read de Becker (to start) on the path away from refusal/toward seeing.

    I think we all should stand for a world without violence but with peace and love

    I truly appreciate you have not fallen victim to your journey. Your children are fortunate to have a mother like you.
