A survivor of early childhood trauma, kinship care, Orphanage, Foster Care, reunification into an alcoholic and physically & emotionally violent step family, Danny emancipated out at 17 and never looked back! He says of his life today:
"As the oldest of six, encouraging came easy to me, though I first learned to aggravate and agitate, it wasn’t long before supporting and encouraging became my life-long passion. I discovered early that, although it was fun to lead my siblings into mischief and other ridiculous situations, encouraging them was much more rewarding."
What does this have to do with you and the rest of our topsy-turvy, self-centered, masochistic world? Plenty. With all the chaos and anti-culture everything whirling about like a devastating tornado, I’ve noticed some slivers of positive news popping up in the nightly news and on social media. People seem ready for some ENCOURAGING WORDS! And the timing couldn’t be better.
We can get through this! People come together and help each other during major disasters. There are always those that try to take advantage, but when we stick together, we can overcome. When we look for positive influences, we will see more positive ways to deal with stress and trauma.
