I love writing. Of all the skills I’ve attempted to master during my lifetime, writing is very high on my list of joyful accomplishments. This is because, as a child, I suffered from developmental trauma. I lived without a voice. I could cry, I could laugh, and I could rage, but the ability to speak my mind and heart in order to communicate something intelligible was not a skill I fully developed until I was an adult. My way of avoiding discovery of my distressful isolation was to smile, a lot. Early on I discovered that people tend to ignore a silent, smiling kid. They look fine, right? Cute. One of the kids nobody has to worry about. Education changed my life, as it changes the lives of many, many traumatized children.
