THE CHOICE is a gift to humanity. One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed.—DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
Edith Eva Eger is my kind of hero. She survived unspeakable horrors and brutality; but rather than let her painful past destroy her, she chose to transform it into a powerful gift—one she uses to help others heal.

Fun fact about Dr. Edith Eger…
Edie has quite a history in Texas where she lived for many years. Two of her children still call Texas home, living in El Paso and Austin, respectively. In 1969, she received her first degree in Psychology from the University of Texas, El Paso (formerly Texas Western University). She then pursued her doctoral internship at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Fort Bliss, Texas where she began her work with veterans and active duty soldiers suffering from PTSD.
Does it have to be ‘us’ vs. ‘them‘?
YOU are the mirror
