We live in an imperfect world. I am flawed, you are flawed. My book is not perfect. If you are looking for perfection, you will not find it in these pages. I didn't pay to have this book edited. I want you to feel rather than look at grammar errors. I want my words to penetrate your soul, to experience my sorrow, laughter, hope, and love. This book is about a dream that was planted in my spirit almost 15 years ago. I did not know the trials that were required to give hope to others on their life journey. For many years, I hid behind a mask of illusion, hiding my childhood trauma and pain. I was a people pleaser. My heart had good intentions, but my spirit was broken, damaged, and I did not know how to fix myself. I pursued my educational goals, received my master's in Autism, suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, and experienced the suicide of my student in the Sparks Middle School Shooting. This is a true story of struggle, pain, hope, love, brain injury, defeat, unanswered questions, and victory. This book reveals my "Silent Shaking" and how I healed.
