This blog isn’t dedicated to the stopping of the storms caused by all traumas. It is specifically dedicated to finding ways to Stop the Storm of traumas caused by adults passing their own unresolved traumas down to their offspring. I believe this is a reachable goal, one that requires the involvement of all people within a society as they come to recognize that what happens in the lives of infants and children impacts the course of physiological development in critically important ways.
Most of these changes are permanent and cannot be reversed. They cause complications and difficulties that early trauma survivors will suffer from for the rest of their lives. These changes were – and are – preventable.
If America wishes to be remembered as a nation of plenty that squandered its offspring to cause the disintegration of their society from the inside out, we are well on the way to recognizing our most negative potential. But, then, we are a nation that founded itself on lies told to and genocide committed against the indigenous people who lived here to begin with. Perhaps we have never been a nation with a heart — but rather have been a nation with a ridiculous ego.
As the links here indicate
America is sustaining, and even gaining, global negative status when it comes to our lack of regard for our offspring. Are we capable of national compassion and common sense?
In the meantime, this blog makes a point of discussing the other side of the “perfect American nation” mythology. There are troubles in pretend fantasy land. We could address and rectify the conditions that allow terrorism into the lives of our offspring. Yes, we could. Are we? Will we?
Why on earth NOT?
