Letter about understanding violence…
To the Editor,
Recently I have been trying to understand the violence in our society and trying to figure out what we can do to encourage civility and restraint
In reading Pure Land by Annette Mcgivney, I felt I gained some insight into how our minds deal with trauma in our lives. According to a report from the U.S. department of Health and Human Services, “3.4 million children in the United States were deemed at risk in 2015 for being victims of domestic abuse and neglect.”
Childhood trauma that is not treated when the child is in the process of growing remains in the mind and can “fire-off” in unfortunate ways when they are adults. I recommend this book to anyone who shares my concerns.
