I applaud responsible American men peacefully protecting depressed, often emotionally ill self-harming neighbors who through no fault of their own were irresponsibly introduced to an emotionally and/or physically abusive childhood fraught with pain, struggle, hardships, FEAR, torment, demeaning government handouts, torment and uncertainty primarily responsible for far too many American teens and adults becoming depressed, much like urban storytellers and victims of childhood abuse, neglect and maltreatment Kendrick Lamar and the late Tupac Shakur who spoke about depression and suicidal thoughts.
However, unless meaningful ACTION is taken to plug the hole in the dyke responsible for creating the flood of abused and neglected kids who mature into depressed teens and adults, these responsible men, their responsible children and grandchildren will be forever struggling with a losing battle.
The first step. Aggressively educating teen girls and young women that placing the emotional well being of their child(ren) ABOVE ALL ELSE will more often than not result with a fairly or wonderfully happy American kid maturing into a reasonably responsible teen and adult respecting themselves and the well being of their peaceful neighbors, as the responsible men in this video clearly are doing.
Childhood Trauma is a real DISEASE so despicable it is responsible for human beings doing crazy, desperate things, like Tupac tattooing in bold letters ‘THUG LIFE’ right over his once NEGLECTED, hurting, hungry belly. Or creating American music art describing waking in the morning with thoughts of blasting himself before leaving his crib to snatch a neighbor’s purse for funds to feed his once neglected, hungry belly.
“The Hate U Give Little Infants Fvvks Everyone”. ~Tupac on T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E.
“We need more people who care; you know what I’m saying? We need more women, mothers, fathers, we need more of that, we don’t need any more entertainers.“ ~Tupac Shakur
Tupac was well aware that not only are American kids being UNJUSTLY OPPRESSED, IMPEDED and DEPRIVED from experiencing their full human potential, Tupac realized OUR NATION is being deprived of enjoying the potential achievements offered to ALL Americans by reasonably well adjusted kids maturing into responsible teens and adults who care about the future of OUR American Nation.
There is no doubt that prior to leaving us, a depressed, emotionally tormented Tupac Shakur, whose young life and wealth of human potential was taken from him/us by OTHER depressed, angry victims of Childhood Trauma, Abuse & Neglect, INTELLIGENTLY & CORRECTLY RECOGNIZED it is time to end “America’s War on Poverty,” renaming our Nation’s expanding social disorder and # ONE HEALTH CRISIS known as CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, to
“America’s War on Childhood Abuse, Neglect & Maltreatment”
Doctors Ross and Dietz offer insights into how our Early Childhood Development plays a key role in determining the type of individual we mature into.
Robert K. Ross, MD, President and CEO of The California Endowment, addressed inmates at Ironwood State Prison offering a compelling overview of the role that exposure to Childhood Trauma plays in the lives of Emotionally Troubled and chronically ill American teens and adults.
At 2:12:25 in this documentary about Mafia hit-man and victim of Early Childhood Trauma/Abuse, Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, Dr. Park Dietz explains why young Richard most likely developed into a emotionally disturbed, paranoid, cruel, heartless teen and man who did not give a frig about anyone else, including his wife and kids.
