How appropriate given these recent tragedies. The author of this book was a much loved and remembered high school teacher of mine. He taught in a continuation school that had its fair share of at risk students. Not only was he a teacher, but he was the sort that you never forget-the kind who imprints lessons, words and thoughts which we echo to our own kids. I cannot wait to read this book as "Trauma in the lives of Children" was enlightening, so was having the privilege of being his student.
