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
You are amazingly! This was and is and always will be powerful! What’s more amazing is that it’s like I’m seeing somebody who could’ve been a statistic and you turned around and became a crusader I don’t know you but I’m extremely proud of you! keep fighting that fight you’re words are mighty!!!
There are lots of people with similar problems growing up... but I can safely say that most of them do not consider buying a gun and killing lots of innocent people. They might try to harm themselves, but rarely others! This seems to be a very American reaction to these kinds of problems... why?? Why harm others because your own life isn't going too well??
I was bullied in school, thankfully never anything physical but there were times where it almost happened. I witnessed a couple of other kids get bullied due to similar reasons as you, but I was too afraid to act as I was always just another target for them. After awhile I tried to wear clothing that would hide me because I felt unloved and I hoped it would make me invisible but it only made it worse. I got hoked into the wrong guys and it made me mess up future relationships... I am married now though and I am extremely lucky. I had just wished that I could have saved those kids who were just like me, because it still haunts me to this day. When I have kids I want to teach them to not be afraid and to help those around them who cannot help themselves. Thats all I want.
It's funny, when ameri3kans go overseas they act so friendly, outgoing, open and kind.....back in the states, as soon they get to the arriving airport......they TRANSFORM, they get back into their 'crazy bubble' and continue their life of indifference, detachment, uncaring, unkindness and coldness towards others. They are really a CLINICAL case.
Bro I get all this but there’s no excuse for being about to kill people. Anyone who lacks the compassion to know that just because you’re don’t doesn’t mean you can ruin the lives others. I’m not saying this guy is a bad guy, but I am saying he’s an example of human weakness. We shouldn’t just strive to be like his friend, but we should also strive to under the worst conditions possible maintain your humanity. That message runs contrary to this guys, but that’s just my 2 cents
That is amazing that someone who was in such a low and terrible place could be lifted up so high and end up having a great life surrounded by people who love them. I've never had any issues like this but the next time I see that someone is in a bad place I'll remember this guy's story and hopefully I can help them like his friend did.
The way I see it working is that there is a box in every classroom with a code and only the teachers know the code if that code is entered the box is unlocked and the cops are called and of course the teacher would have to be trained
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
