Shame, Blame, Grief

Mixed with a concoction of doubt Shaming a child leaves a scar that goes to the bones of who we think we are.  The finger pointing in a small face, the look of disgust on a parent’s face, the sinking sensation in the pit of the stomach penetrate to the core. Distress. Slightly, maybe distinctively […]

No matter where you start. Whether it’s the starting line of a race, midfield, ahead or behind someone, the starting place matters.
