Patrick Stewart was always my kind of leader in Star Trek – Next Generation (oops! my inner geekiness just lept out).
His personal story has come to my attention just this week.
He was a child raised in the midst of domestic abuse. Of course my ears perked up when I saw Star Trek meet one of my passions but I was astounded at the grace and strength he extends in this video.
If you outlast the home-movie cinematography, you will catch a glimpse of one who stands as a
Warrior and Healer
in the same few minutes.
Inspiring. Moving. Truth. Great!

Being wounded encompasses so many more paths than an abusive childhood or abusive partner. I have friends who have faced the wounds of chronic and debilitating illness, infertility, divorce, death of a child or loved one.
We are all wounded in some way – at some time in our lives.
If you know of other videos, songs, blogs or thoughts of your own that you would like to share here – with

We are on this journey together!
LOVE me some Star Trek & especially Jean Luc Picard!!! Anyway, I hadn’t heard about this. More GC’s that I referred to in my first comment. He refers to Refuge in the UK. A few months ago I saw a video that was done for Refuge’s “Don’t Cover It Up” campaign that really impacted me. Well, guess I’ll write a blog post about it now….
