-- Quote of the Day --

“Leah’s family come from a very small town and they are very private people, and I talked to some of them and they love the book and they love the pictures but some of them said ‘listen we are a little uncomfortable that you decided to disclose so much about your lives’… but Leah wanted to do this – and we thought the only way that this would work is to be totally open, and that can be a little uncomfortable for some people. 
What I have done is I have sent them some of the responses I have received on how this book is helping people and I think they can then appreciate it even though some of it is a little difficult to read.”

~ Nick Trujillo

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on Feb. 26, 2013… titled: Leaving a Legacy & Healing Grief Through Writing
