The Relentless School Nurse: "Unless Someone Like you Cares a Whole Awful Lot, Nothing is Going to get Better. It's Not." - Dr. Seuss

Robin M Cogan ·
The opening quote in Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha's gripping book, What The Eyes Don't See, struck me right in the heart: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." so says Dr. Suess. Caring is something that may be in short supply during our current political climate. Grappling with caring, too much or too little is worth a moment of self-reflection.

Thank you Michael so much for your list of resources. At this time in my life, there are far more resources for me to use now then there are problems and trauma. And I never ever thought that would happen Since the Dr. Mate talks , it seems as if the whole world has opened up and is offering help, love and resources on Golden Platters in the last 3 weeks. It is a wonderful time for recovery and healing to be the the next stages in peoples lives. Again Michael, Thank You MM

Hello Mary, You're welcome. I am glad to hear that Gabor Mate has helped you. He's an incredible human being. That is the beauty to the trauma arena - there are all kinds of incredible people, organizations and resources to help folks heal - Just what is shared at PACES is amazing. Too many are still in the dark as to what is out there..or they cannot afford to get the appropriate trauma care. Take care, Michael
