Death – A Common Experience

Death, it is one of the few things from which I seem able to move forward. While, to this day, I carry the pain and scars of childhood trauma, specifically being bullied, deaths of loved ones do not haunt me. I can still see the faces of S.B and M.M. and J.W. as they made... Continue Reading →
