RUNNING AWAY AND FINDING HOME
Authors: Judge Tommy Webb, Brooke R. Webb-Gennusa, Rosie J. Williams
Join us for this remarkable journey of resilience, persistence, and survival, as a young, trauma-impacted boy dares to leave the only home he's ever known.
In Soo Park, born during the Korean War, faced hardships and trials that far surpass the capability of most small children to endure. Born to an alcoholic prostitute, not welcome in his hut of a home, spending nights in trash dumpsters, eating garbage to satisfy the hunger pains in his belly, forced him to finally run away from the crippling chaos.
This is a story of hope rising up from squalor, acts of kindness from a multitude of individuals positively impacting the life of a child, and the echoing presence of mercy and grace that allowed a child to find a safe place in this suffering world.
This is an adventure of dedication, where a boy transformed into a man, and now uses his experience to advocate and speak out for those who have no voice.
Watch as a child climbs out of the trash, accesses his inner wisdom, and embraces the idea of value. Share with him the dream of every person being treated like a treasure and feeling valued while valuing others.
You too can make a difference!
