Can kindness provide real solutions in a polarized and divided culture? If we paid more attention to it, would it make much of a difference? We believe the answer is, “Yes!” But we know we’re more effective working together than alone, and something exponentially powerful happens when we do. In each episode, we share kindness stories, opportunities for kindness, and ways we can partner to serve more people.

    Ed Squire | Introduction about my memoir. My life isn't what you think.

    I'm writing a memoir book of a deep story about my life that I've never spoken about before.  
    I've talked a lot about the sexual abuse that happened to me when I was a young boy and how life was wonderful until I was 3 years old when everything changed. I’ve been telling that part of my life often since I started an organization in 2016 called MeTooWhatNow (www.metoowhatnow.com).  It helps men and women who suffered childhood trauma get their lives back.  
    What I've NEVER talked about is the darkness in my life that I had for decades.  
    When my memoir comes out in 2024, it'll cover the darkness in my life that'll surprise many.  The reason why I decided to do this is to help anyone who's experienced the darkness.  
    More details to come in other podcasts and social media as I write the book and before it finally becomes completed and released.
