Therese Athill recently wrote a powerful article for the Seattle Gay News which discusses spirituality, and other aspects of metaphysical benefits not just for those who have experienced a life of trauma, but also about those who have found a way to discover and grow in various ways. http://sgn.org/sgnnews49_12/page15.cfm?fbclid=IwAR17UU3asSQYlZfLlCv0ze6dMA9c5B9x5HmdCq60FQdhFMEoDUXWGV19Npw It's been a great honor to have been included in the article, especially in the sense where I can discuss my trauma in bigotry and homophobia as an outwardly gay child. While the full context of our conversation has not been published, some of the more pertinent aspects have been directly included. Don't dismiss those who may be coming across in a unique, or different way. You never know who they may end up becoming in their later life, and more so deserve an equal and fair chance just like everyone else.
