The Impact of Day of Calm Foundation Inc. on Future Generations
Why 5th April
My father, an accomplished scientist and innovator, battled with feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, a consequence of the emotional abuse he endured during his childhood. Despite his remarkable achievements, the scars of his past often overshadowed his self-perception.
He passed away on April 5, 2020, leaving behind a legacy of resilience and strength. This day is in honor of him and all he wished he could be, never realizing that he already embodied those qualities.
In an effort to raise awareness and provide support for those impacted by childhood trauma, we are proud to introduce the International Day of Calm. This campaign is designed to promote emotional well-being and healthy communication within families and communities. It is a day dedicated to my father and to countless others who have suffered similar experiences, appropriately falling within National Child Abuse Awareness Month.
Our goal is to emphasize the importance of empathy, mindfulness, and stress-free communication. We aim to create an environment where future generations can thrive, build self-esteem, and break free from the cycle of emotional abuse. We invite you to join us in our mission by participating in the International Day of Calm. Pledge to treat others with kindness, compassion, and understanding, and together, we can make a difference.
We can transform the lives of those affected by childhood abuse, ensuring that they realize their worth and potential, just as my father should have realized his. Together, we can ensure that the cycle of emotional abuse ends with us.
