The anger and violence that explodes from our youth is often the results of physical, emotional, and even sexual abuse, perpetrated by the adults who were entrusted with taking care of them. Deep seated pain from the injustice of being forced to swallow the abuse in silence is later manifested in rebellious, self destructive behavior and even deadly violence.  Sammy Rangel, author of Fourbears: Myths of Forgiveness, shares his story of how his childhood was a living hell of physical, emotional and sexual abuse that drove him to become a violent street gang leader. His book is a story of survival and transformation, from violence and hate to peace and love.
