STAY CALM

Aaron sends us these knuckles with the following story:

Since childhood, many horrific moments came to help shape who I am. Suffering mental abuse, physical abuse and rape at an early age set the standards for my path of self-destruction. Fighting and run-ins with authority figures. Battles with depression, self-loathing and alcohol abuse came to define who I was. My young son was diagnosed with a rare cancer at age two and received a bone marrow transplant. Diagnosed with severe anxiety and panic disorders were the outcome. No more. I refuse to be a victim because I shall never admit defeat. My knuckles remind me to STAY CALM in whatever may be thrown my way and to act with compassion and patience. Believe in the power of Positive Mental Attitude. It just might help you save your life.
