“Our commitment to our veterans is a sacred covenant. And I don’t use those words lightly….” —President Obama speaking to veterans at the National Convention of the DAV”
Mr. President, Sir, with all due respect. Do you believe all Americans have a commitment, duty and moral responsibility to protect from harm our nation’s most valuable and cherished assets, many currently experiencing our nation’s generational Cycle of Child Abuse, Neglect and Maltreatment that evolved from America’s long-standing, ignorant Culture of Racism?
Specifically, sir, I am referring to Americans like your friend American Urban Storyteller Kendrick Lamar. An admittedly emotionally ill American traumatized by gun violence he witnessed at the tender age of five-years-old, outside the home where he, his siblings, and numerous cousins, as well as neighborhood friends had a right as well as absolute human need to feel SAFE, loved and cared for during a critical period of their human/childhood development.
Sir, after your friend Kendrick Lamar revealed he was raised, nurtured, socialized by young, “living wild,” shotgun toting, drug peddling, criminal child abusing, emotionally ill family and community GANG members responsible for Kendrick lamenting he was deprived from experiencing a SAFE, “Average Joe” American kid childhood…
…in 2015 urban storyteller Kendrick Lamar performed these words for a worldwide audience:
“AND WE HATE THE PO-PO, WANNA KILL US DEAD IN THE STREET FO’ SHO.”
Mr. President, sir, with all due respect, it’s apparent your good friend Kendrick, who more than once has publicly revealed he’s been experiencing acute depression as well as Suicidal Thoughts for much of his life, is experiencing some type of emotional or mental illness.
Illness directly related to the Childhood Trauma he experienced being raised by family members experiencing some type of emotional illness preventing them from embracing and following their innate, natural human urge to place their child’s emotional well-being Above All Else, as well as their instinctual human need to protect their child from harm.
The late American urban storyteller Tupac Shakur, an admitted emotionally ill street thug, as well as American grievously harmed by America’s Culture of Childhood Abuse & Neglect, sharing wisdom and describing his T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E American kid childhood:
“The Hate U Give Little Infants Fvvks Everyone” ~Tupac Shakur
“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
Sir, in addition to sharing a covenant with our nation’s protectors, do we not have a covenant and Duty to protect from harm young Americans so they may mature into reasonably responsible, fairly or wonderfully happy American teens and adults embracing genuine concern for the future of our nation?
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.
