ACEs
 
 
TRY I started concentrating on ACEs in 2014, when by "accident" I came across the ACE Survey. To my surprise my ACE score was 9. I learned how to function as a 9, survive as a 9 and guide others out of the darkness as a 9. I didn't realize that I lived in darkness and therefore that I did not realize that "light" existed.

Although the subject has evolved to include experts that teach various forms of relief, which I applaud, what is missing and the factor that hasn't been acknowledged is the personal power resident in every individual with scores 4-9. 

To that end, for such a time as this, Plan 4 Zero was launched in 2016. Using the Strategic Prevention Framework (SFP), Seven Strategies for Community Change and Search Institute as the foundation for an Empowered Community (individually defined), change is occurring one life and one system (my  dream) at a time. 

I look forward to sharing more.
