      VERY POWERFUL! “Hurt people hurt people, as survivors know.” Our system is obviously broke and I agree with the author, “It’s time for public officials to start listening to the survivors, families and communities who experience violence and trauma firsthand.” This amazing individual has personal insights and answers that make sense and are practical to implement. Change is imperative.

      I can't imagine having this man's capacity for forgiveness and understanding. All the more reason to listen to what he has to say.
