Overview

"I get abused and hurt so much, and no one seems to care..."

These are real words written by a real girl. There are thousands more just like her. Her pain is real. Her story is true. But her voice has been hidden... until now.

For those who will 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, there are incredible stories to be unearthed. This book is a shocking, inspirational expose of just a few of these stories--hidden in plain sight. It is written in response to thousands of personal letters and messages, both for those in crisis and for those who share that crisis with them everyday. These are the stories, the responses, and ultimately the hope that we all should own for each other.

As one of the most sought-after public speakers in the world, Reggie Dabbs has shared his own incredible story with millions of adults and students each year for the past twenty-five years. Because of social media, many of them share their own stories with him in return. These letters contain their stories with names and details changed to protect their anonymity, having otherwise been kept in their original form. They are followed by Reggie's actual response of hope to that individual. John Driver, MS--a former public secondary educator, as well as a fifteen-year community youth advocate and mentor--adds additional insight and "Breathable Moments" for educators, parents, friends, and family.

Equipping readers to help those in crisis continue breathing another day, Just Keep Breathing provides both the inspiration and the information needed to respond confidently and appropriately--and see those we care about make it to another sunrise.

Dabbs (Reggie) and pastor and songwriter Driver join forces to compile a bevy of heartrending letters written by teens going through hardship, and to offer advice for the downtrodden. Dabbs, who speaks to millions about overcoming challenges each year, explains that it is his personal mission to bring hope to those struggling by telling his own story and explaining the stories of others who have overcome adversity. This startling text is filled with letters from hurting young people and also includes Dabbss answers and powerful action steps for readers to consider. The text is insightful but heavy, featuring candid accounts of suicide attempts, rape, abuse, abandonment, bullying, low self-esteem, and much more. Dabbs and Driver offer both practical and spiritual advice for each situation. Readers who need a resource for understanding and approaching the life-changing pitfalls of youth will find much to take away from the book. Dabbs spills his giant-sized heart over every page and challenges readers to begin doing the same as they work to engage with the young folks in their community. (Jan.)
