"Find a cause bigger than yourself. Personal trauma has sources in society, family, community. A full circle has to be completed: All personal healing and growth are to help you become an impactful, positive and meaningful person in relation to others.""From Trauma to Transformation" by Los Angeles Poet Laureated Luis J. Rodriguez. It's a gift - don't leave it unopened!
If anyone knows the journey from trauma to transformation, it's Luis Rodrigues. He's made this journey himself, and he has helped countless others do it, through his poetry, his community center, Tia Chucha's, workshops, and public speaking. He is a blessing to all his communities and we are grateful for his presence and his wisdom.
