What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 25 in a series – “… they almost shut down for awhile.”

August 19th, 2019

“I think we all walked around in a trance for the first few weeks,” Obaachan continues. “I’ve read that when people go from one culture to the next, or when some type of shocking event happens to them, they can become so overwhelmed that mentally and emotionally, they almost shut down for awhile. This is probably what happened to us.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant
