  1. Aiding traumatized children is a noble endeavor. The need to provide them security and stability and a peaceful environment is essential to make sure that the scars (emotionally, physically. mentally, and spiritually) will not be a source of anger, resentment, and embarassment, but rather, of strength and endurance and triumph. - Layce of good research topics.

  2. I'm so happy to see such summits created. It is great for our kids and for us as well.
