For those who dare to listen to the truth, tragedy, and triumph found in the desperate words of a generation eclipsed by the white noise of a culture too busy to care, incredible stories are unearthed. Just Keep Breathing is an alarming yet inspirational exposé of just a few of these stories. Written in response to thousands of personal letters and messages, it is for those who are in crises and those who share the crises with them every day. These are the actual letters, honest responses, and, ultimately, the real hope for a generation we all should own.
One of the most sought-after public speakers in the world, Reggie Dabbs has shared his incredible story with millions of adults and students during the last twenty-five years. Now, as a result of social media, many of them have shared with him their own staggering stories. A sample of these, along with Reggie’s actual responses of hope to each, is presented in this book. Additional insights and “Breathable Moments” for educators, parents, and friends—anyone moved to action by the issues of this generation—are provided by coauthor John Driver, a former public secondary educator, community youth advocate, and mentor.
Just Keep Breathing supplies both the inspiration and information needed for you to respond confidently and appropriately, to see those you care about make it to another sunrise.
