DENVER, Colo. (PRWEB) July 13, 2015
On December 13, 2013, a gunman walked into Arapahoe High School and opened fire, killing a student and scarring a community. Suzanne Tyler, a teacher at the school, was closer to the tragedy than most – the shooter had written her classroom number on his arm before entering the building.
Shaken, Tyler faced a long road to inner peace in the aftermath. Her new book, “There Is Hope,” is the result of her healing process. The illustrated book, meant for readers of all ages, speaks of dark times in life. Throughout the story, the book’s protagonist learns to confront and eventually control her “monster,” the dark force in her life that follows her after a traumatic event.
“The healing began as I started to share my story, and others shared theirs with me,” Tyler said.
Tyler recognizes that tragedy and trauma take form in all shapes and sizes, but that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
“I want to be an instrument for helping others to heal,” Tyler said. “I want people to know that someone understands and that we all have hope.”
