This book is a shocking yet inspiring collection of personal letters from among those who are so often ignored by our busy culture - true stories of abuse, marginalisation, extraordinary resilience, and eventual triumph. Each story comes with its response to the sender from Reggie Dabbs.

"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.

Intense reality
4 stars By Josh, Jun 26 2017
This book is a hard book. It doesn't sugar coat reality, it tells some shockingly hard stories to read. There is a generation that is hurting, and this book goes about sharing some stories that raise awareness of this. This book is intense, I have to warn that it will be hard to read. This book is also eye opening and inspiring. It will cause you to see the younger generations of this world in a whole different way. It had me in tears and gave me a new desire to see change in this world. Great book to read.
