"Return To Innocence"
by A Place For Healing
Embeded on 12/26/2010

Description -
Once again A Place For Healing has created a two sided video.
It is for both survivors and for those that care for them.

This video encourages you to (report if you can, but get counseling, even if you can't report) so you can resolve the trauma.

Return to your full, or entire self, instead of being broken and feeling "less than".

Trigger Warning
This video contains footage of Smiles Alot (from "Dances With Wolves") being struck by a US Soldier.
Sadly, he never smiled after this confrontation.

Reclaim your innocent smile.

can turn it into a good thing instead of a bad thing.
I hope that you watch this all the way through.

"We hope that after you watch this video, you will feel raised up"

There are three possible trigggers;
* pic of a man shaking a child-"You never listen, are you stupid?",
* pic of a tear on a child's face-"He'll never see my silent tears."
        (a promise we are sure that many survivors have made,
        and most have kept)
* some Christian content, though not strong.
