Tonight's special guest is Charles (Chuck) Prinzen from Fairfield, California, a returning NAASCA family member. A survivor and activist, Chuck is an educator who's worked with youth for many years. His 'Me Inc Now' project offers guidance to teens (and their parents). In fact, in 2018 he was the Keynote Speaker at Banning High School, addressing the Los Angeles Unified School Board (LAUSB). Chuck says that he survived 'cycles of life' and says his story of abuse is no different than many others who have experienced abuse .. the same torment, pain, feelings of loneliness and despair. "It was not till I was older that I could clearly see the past. They say that hindsight is twenty-twenty, mine was not, it was blurry." He goes on, "The first step to seeing the past clearly was when a kindhearted gift of love was given to me by a stranger." Chuck's principal goal to help instill self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect in today's youth, and that's that 'Me.Inc.Now' (me expressing I need change now) is all about. A brighter future can be achieved by incorporating cultural change in our youth of today through understanding lessons of the past to bridge the ever growing generation gap. Change is built upon a foundation of communication, listening, and love. 'Me.Inc.Now' is committed to inspiring positive thoughts and breaking cycles of anger and resentment that prevent young individuals from being the best version of themselves. "I am thankful for learning that 'love' is most the powerful tool in my emotional toolbox," Chuck writes, "no more sorrow and loneliness, no more bruises, no more pain, no more fear."
