I Was Almost A School Shooter | Aaron Stark | TEDxBoulder

Оценок: 328007 | Просмотров: 6304365
After growing up in painful, abusive conditions, Aaron Stark was on his way to an atrocity, until simple acts of kindness changed his life forever. What is causing the rise of violence and are our current fears and solutions just making it worse? My name is Aaron stark. I am 39 years old with 4 children, 2 cats, one dog, and a beautiful wife. I am a stay at home dad; my wife is the breadwinner of the family. I am a comic book fan, a pop culture junkie, and a lover of the sciences. I have more knowledge about superheros, pro wrestling, and comedy than anyone really has a right to. After growing up in very abusive and violent circumstances followed by over a decade if personal recovery, I am now a happy family man. I recently shred a very personal story of my triumph over my past, and it has changed my life forever. My mission is to let people know that no matter how dark it may seem, there is light coming. We really are not alone. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

School shooters are cute

I will always be nice and respectful to every one I meet, but if I see violent tendencies from someone I will not go out of my way to be friends with them. Sometimes school shooters are good kids I'm bad situations but other times they are complete psychopaths.

My girlfriend gets hit by her parents. She is super shy and we are extremely in love, but the mother hates me because i am older than her daughter. She knows i will do something to stop her. Either friendly or unfriendly. I can be very aggressive if i need to. I hate this women.

Our social services are a joke. My “mom” use to take kids in and said she was doing it for them when really she just wanted the checks that came with it. As soon as I hit 18 and was out of school and the child support money stopped she kicked me out. And now has done pretty much the same to them every after being reported to them many many times. This place is full of awful people that ruined good people like this dude for their own gain

This has nothing to do with this video but I wanna show you something that happened at school recently: Teacher asked me: Are you doing? (x4) Me: What do you mean? Teacher: Are you doing your work or are you talking? Me: Both And then I turned to my friend who was coincidentally sitting right next to me and said: Man it feels good to be a gangster xD

This man is amazing. I know that it is hard to get up and tell people how you feel. I can do it easily through comments like this, but I cannot imagine how much courage it would take to do this. Good job to this man and I believe that everything he said was true.
