DEAR FRIENDS- All across America and around the world, people are in pain about the horrific and heartbreaking massacre of the innocents. The collective cry from the heart of humanity is: 'How could this happen?"
Every child is born innocent and pure, ready to love and be loved. It takes a mind-and-soul shattering amount of pain during one's childhood to turn a newborn child with a loving nature into a cold-hearted monster who re-enacts his own suffering on similarly innocent children. We must awaken now to how the physical, emotional and sexual violence and manipulation of vulnerable children can create enough rage and pain to cause the murder and destruction of all we hold dear. The killing of the precious angels of Newtown....
The great challenges to waking people up to the real and actual causes of this heartless violence are: 1. that people are so frightened of the pain of their own childhoods; and 2. that the taboo against seeing how dysfunctional/abusive child rearing turns once-innocent children into mentally disturbed killers is still very strong. Society tends to protect the parents in these situations with an unconscious and tragic "code of silence". We must break the code of silence about familial emotional/physical/sexual dysfunction- over and over again- until the world emerges from its collective blindness and sees the truth.. In our loving and compassionate nature- which must be nurtured and supported from the moment every child is born- is the future of the world. WITH LOVE AND HOPE- BRYAN
