"Brother's trauma can no longer be treated as a taboo or an inconvenient truth. We cannot be shunted to the side as if our trauma does not matter. Our voices must be part of the conversation because, without our voices, our families never fully heal. Our mental and emotional pain, guilt, and shame must be treated. Otherwise, we never heal. We will forever carry our trauma in silence." – Keeper Catran-Whitney ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Additional Resources: Publishing a Memoir  1:1 Book Coaching  Publishing a Romance  Book 30 minutes and get your book strategy instantly! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ Follow us: Keeper Catran-Whitney's Facebook: Keeper Catran-Whitney's website: Website -  Instagram - LinkedIn - Massiel Valenzuela - Castaneda Facebook  -
