After growing up in painful, abusive conditions, Aaron Stark was on his way to an atrocity, until simple acts of kindness changed his life forever. What is causing the rise of violence and are our current fears and solutions just making it worse? My name is Aaron stark. I am 39 years old with 4 children, 2 cats, one dog, and a beautiful wife. I am a stay at home dad; my wife is the breadwinner of the family. I am a comic book fan, a pop culture junkie, and a lover of the sciences. I have more knowledge about superheros, pro wrestling, and comedy than anyone really has a right to. After growing up in very abusive and violent circumstances followed by over a decade if personal recovery, I am now a happy family man. I recently shred a very personal story of my triumph over my past, and it has changed my life forever. My mission is to let people know that no matter how dark it may seem, there is light coming. We really are not alone. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx Show more

I AM VERY SORRY FOR YOUR PATHETIC CHILDHOOD. I HOPE EVERYTHING IS GOING WELL IN YOUR LIFE. IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE TO TALK ABOUT THIS. I KNOW HIS BEST FRIEND WAS A TRUE HERO IN REAL LIFE.. ALL CHILD SHOULD BE TREATED AS TREASURE AND LOVE AND GIVE THEM AFFECTION. THIS BROKE MY HEART AFTER HEARING WHAT HE WENT THROUGH... IT MADE ME CRY AND GOT ME EMOTIONAL... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING IT TO THE WORLD... "GOD BLESS YOU AND EVERYONE"!!!!!!

"I was just doing as I had been taught." If this is your mentality for life then that's your true issue. You have to learn for yourself what is right and wrong, its nobody's responsibility to teach you. Man up.

Except that you're privileged enough to "not be alone" and to have family. Some don't have that. Some indeed have nothing to lose at all.

I know my comment will never be seen but I agree with this guy a ton. I was my fathers latest child he had me at 58 so all my family members hated me for being the one to inherit what they thought was their money. Almost killed my cousin who was 30 years older than me because he didn’t like me. I’m no killer but I have felt the effects of having no way out.
