Demetrio Maguidad took a traumatic experience, of witnessing his friend get killed by a car at the age of 7, and learned to grow from it. He did not allow it to affect his life negatively, or allow himself to fall apart. It made him a stronger person to become musician and radio host. This is an inspiring story to anyone who has had tragedy in their life, especially at a young age, to go on with life and be grateful for what you have.

Communities from around the country held events, large and small where survivors and community members came together uniting in support of adults surviving child abuse.

We can't be afraid to grieve. To begin to find any meaning in a tragedy, we must acknowledge the loss and let it flood us.

I can really relate to what Demetrio was saying because from a really young age my parents have always exposed me to death by taking me to wakes and funerals of friends and family even when I was small and this has given me the ability to confront that awful reality of existence.

We start to heal by figuring out what that person's life has meant to us, and why their going from here to there will make us worry or sad. Then, we allow ourselves to remember, because the gulf that exists between you and another person will heal in mighty ways when you learn and recount how you first met someone and what you knew might happen to them when you met them. I met Aunt Donna one time when I was a little girl, and I just knew that she would pass of health related complications at an early age. In addition, my friend Mike lived a very worrisome lifestyle, and he succumbed to gun violence at an early age. Finally, my Aunt Marie was so old but she had a relationship working with everybody and the children they'd had. Now, I wonder how I might go, though I hope its for a really long time and of natural causes. The boy in this video is an example of being in the hands of someone else, when life has not taught all its lessons. I hope I can be of some help to many while I am still on this earth.

"A silent raging shriek" I understand. Thank you for expressing it so clearly

When I was growing up death was not spoken about much, leaving people alone with their grief. Demetrio's story presents such a different response, one that he learned from and was inspired by the music. It was very moving to listen to him and to contemplate how a calling may come from tragedy.

Demetrio is such a beautiful storyteller. Powerful.
