Oprah Asks: Do They Remember?

Orprah recently asked guest Dr. Bruce Perry about child abuse neglect and if "they do remember." As many of my readers and others know, the answer is yes... They Do Remember. We do not get over it! But we can get through it.

After many years of struggling with addictions, failed relationships, numerous jobs ending, I was forced to look inside to the why--why was I not able to connect with others or even myself. Pain is pain. Yes, many children suffer horrific beginnings and some saddly die. We are here for a reason. We are here to connect. We are here to learn how to love. Each one of us has a purpose. Perhaps yours is to help someone else connect.

  1. Sandy,

    Deb & I know Dr. Perry. His work on the effects of violence on children is groundbreaking to say the least. Debbie nominated him for an Ambassador of Peace award several years ago and he won. Also the work of the OC Safe from the Start Coalition (which Deb is a consultant for) was based in part on Dr. Perry work. He is a great guy. -Dallas
