I have lived a trauma dominated life from the time of birth, and am greatly inspired and encouraged by your life and this article. I have done what I can to pay it forward, stay grateful, cope, adjust, reframe and find meaning and am under incredible stress at this time from loss and grief and the particular frustration of unfair victimization by glib thugs. Prayer, meditation, service wherever possible is the way for me. Finding balance and yet pulling out all the stops to practice the presence of God not unlike that described above. Open, where closing is more likely, seeking, while fearing to find only what is, accepting. Thank You.
