During this holiday season, the staff of White Apple Institute joins the many families and friends in their grief and celebration of life for the innocent lives lost to random shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Arapahoe and so many more. Also, let us not forget the victims of gang violence in urban area schools whether the tragedy is caused by automatic or single-shot handguns.
Healing, both physical and psychological healing is a process of restoring a situation to a balanced or functioning state. The emotional scars in the healing process are usually seen or felt long after the traumatic situation or damage is over. Repairing or restoring our mental/emotional state is far more challenging than fixing the physical wounds. Psychological healing from the shootings at schools in urban, suburban or rural areas is a tremendous challenge for concerned citizens of America and the world. The Student2teacher show has always focused on topics that will help students and teachers succeed in school/college and work, even with mental and physical disabilities.
