Greeting. Recently ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victim-survivor Oprah Winfrey passionately addressed America’s easily PREVENTABLE, though potentially life scarring CHILD CARE PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS.
“Oprah Winfrey Dancing On Table Tops, Fixing The ‘Hole In Your Soul'”
For twelve years I was a cop, robbery and death investigator serving YOUNG ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victims Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls’ Brooklyn neighborhoods. I can attest the medical health data and information Oprah, as well as medical doctors and ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) medical researchers share in this POWERFUL ’60 Minutes’ segment are accurate and true.
On Sunday, March 11, 2018, during a 60 Minutes segment titled “Treating Trauma”, Belinda Pittman-McGee, a Domestic Abuse victim-survivor, EDUCATES Oprah Winfrey, a ‘Childhood Trauma’ aka ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (#ACEs) victim-survivor, about our Nation’s PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS, a potentially life scarring medical disease and condition known as, ‘Childhood Trauma’ aka ‘Adverse Childhood Experiences’ (#ACEs).
In my opinion, this brief exchange with world renown Childhood Development researcher Dr. Bruce Perry, M.D., Ph.D, is the most ‘important highlight’ of the entire 14 minute segment.
The second mind blowing highlight is when Oprah asks Mrs. Pittman-McGee if she believes the cycle of poverty, joblessness, homelessness and incarceration can be solved without first addressing the issue of Childhood Trauma…and Mrs. Pittman-McGee immediately replies, “No.”
Perhaps training, conditioning, educating our Nation’s most precious assets to believe it is okay to ‘snitch’ by reporting to their school officials “Suspected Cases of Child Abuse, Emotional Neglect and Maltreatment”, will help reduce the number of abused, emotionally neglected and maltreated children maturing into depressed, angry, frustrated, sometimes suic!dal, homic!dal thinking teens and adults (May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suic!de by Black Children Surprises Researchers – The New York Times) largely lacking compassion, empathy and respect for their peaceful as well as less fortunate neighbors?
I am focused on finding SOLUTIONS, as well as improving the Quality of Life for American kids, who THRU NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN, are IRRESPONSIBLY introduced to a potentially life scarring child and teen upbringing depriving them of enjoying a SAFE, fairly or wonderfully happy American kid childhood all Americans have a right, as well as ABSOLUTE NEED to experience during a critical period of human childhood development.
I write about and share evidence of America’s MUCH IGNORED, oppressive, potentially life scarring black or African American MATERNAL CHILD CARE #T_H_U_G_L_I_F_E NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS that I, as well as a growing number of my reasonably responsible, caring, concerned American and foreign born neighbors believe is impeding our black or American friends, neighbors and co-workers of African descent from experiencing the equality and respect all peaceful, reasonably responsible Americans are entitled to enjoy.

“We need more people who care; you know what I’m saying? We need more women, mothers, fathers, we need more of that…” ~Tupac Shakur
Unfortunately, before he developed the confidence to properly promote his #THUGLIFE Child Abuse AWARENESS concept, Tupac was brutally murdered by OTHER emotionally or mentally ill victims (May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suic!de by Black Children Surprises Researchers – The New York Times) of America’s Culture of African American Child Abuse, Neglect and Emotional Maltreatment evolving from America’s multi-generational, ignorant, once legal Culture of Racism.
Sadly, Tupac LOUDLY and consistently revealed to his fans and admirers, THROUGH NO FAULT OF HIS OWN, he was a ‘Childhood Trauma’ (#ACEs) victim who matured into an admitted depressed, suic!dal thinking teen and adult speaking about harming his peaceful neighbors to acquire cash needed to feed his neglected, hungry, “hurting” belly…yet NO ONE listened!
Much like Tupac I’m sorry to pick on moms, though since ancient times they are the primary caregivers we look to keep our young minds feeling SAFE, protected, cared for and loved right from our start.
In her own way, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, M.D., pediatrician and CEO of ‘The Center for Youth Wellness’ joins Tupac Shakur, the late American urban story-TRUTH-teller and creator of the #THUGLIFE Child Abuse, Emotional Maltreatment & Neglect AWARENESS concept, in PASSIONATELY speaking about the relationship between Adverse Childhood Experiences (#ACEs), aka Childhood Trauma, and later-life health and well being.

If you watch both Polaris Law video broadcasts and do not want to offer him a hug or hand shake, accompanied by kind words praising, as well as thanking Polaris for showing his strength and imparting his hard earned wisdom, you may need to take a long look in the mirror.
