“If someone is assaulted or experiences trauma, there is science and scientific proof, it’s biology, that people change.
The brain changes. And literally what it does is it takes the trauma and it puts it in a box, and it files it away and shuts it so that we can survive the pain,” Gaga said emphatically.
“It also does a lot of other things, it can cause body pains, baseline elevations in anxiety, it can cause complete avoidance of wanting to even remember or think about what happened to you,” she continued.
‘Til It Happens to You” is a song produced and performed by American singer Lady Gaga. She co-wrote the song with Diane Warren for the 2015 documentary film The Hunting Ground, which deals with campus rape in the United States.

The Band of the Welsh Guards paid tribute to Aretha Franklin outside at Buckingham Palace in London on Friday, as stars turned out to attend the legendary singer’s funeral in Detroit. They played Franklin’s hit “Respect” during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.
“The Band of the Welsh Guards are world famous for their musical versatility and professional performance and on August 16 paid tribute to another musical icon and one that has been of huge influence and inspiration to our musicians – Aretha Franklin, whose funeral was being held in Detroit 3,748 miles away, at the same time of the Queen’s Guard Change,” the British Army wrote on their YouTube page.
“In the Army Respect for others underpins all that we do, so there was only one tune that would do for today’s ceremony: the 1967 Aretha Franklin hit ‘R.E.S.P.E.C.T.’ a declaration from a strong confident woman who knows that she has everything.”
The performance was received with respectful applause from the gathered crowd.
In a 49ers’ final preseason game, backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided sit on the bench to protest racial inequality and police brutality for the national anthem.

Former Seahawks player and Green Beret Nate Boyer who talked Kap into making the change. Boyer wrote an open letter to Kaepernick and it caused the two to meet up and discuss America and honoring the anthem.
“Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother’s grave, you know, to show respect. When we’re on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security.”
It was US Army veteran, Nate Boyer, who suggested to Kaepernick to take a knee as a sign of respect
This is their inspiring story of what can happen when people with different perspectives decide to sit down, have a conversation, and hear each other out.
Kaepernick was the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem before games in 2016 to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Critics accused the protest of disrespecting the US flag and military and Drumpf called for players who protested during the anthem to be fired.
Nike released a commercial starring Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday, September 5, following this week’s announcement of a partnership between the two that prompted boycott threats as well as criticism from Drumpf.
Nike and Kaepernick posted the commercial on Twitter and YouTube.
The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.

M’gosh, I found this video just now, traversing through the pages of Facebook. Sometimes there’s good information posted there.
The reason this called my attention is because my oldest granddaughter has been having problems in school since she began. Currently she’s in 9th grade. It’s quite the effort to get her interested and perform adequately in school.
This may be the reason!!
Please, take the time to watch the video. Answers to some questions may be there.
People’s first experience of the system is often profoundly alienating. This is not the fault of their teachers but of the system itself, which assesses us for a particular kind of intelligence. We pass or fail on ridiculously narrow criteria.
I was lucky at school because I had the kind of intelligence that they were looking for – linear, analytical, hyperlexic.
It was only after leaving school that I realized that in other respects I was a complete dummy. Give me any spatial task and I fall to pieces. I stumble over cognitive tasks that other people can perform in their sleep.
If a kid like that is failing, it’s not the kid’s fault. The fault is with the system. As I say, I don’t blame the teachers because they have to teach to the system. Plenty of teachers desperately want to do creative things with the children, to discover their different intelligences, but they are forbidden to do so.
That child in the rockpools: if the system has failed to recognize his intelligence, the system has failed. If an intelligent child fails the tests designed to assess a different kind of intelligence, they become alienated. Not just from school, but from the system as a whole.
The danger is that they then become alienated from public life, alienated from society. Eventually alienated from themselves.

Junior contemporary duo Charity Anderson, of Springville, and Andrés Peñate, of Vineyard, known as Charity and Andres, were shown achieving the first-ever combined perfect score of 100 on NBC’s “World of Dance” on Wednesday during the second Duals round.
“It felt so new and disruptive, #disruptive. that blind jump onto his back, with him not even … ‘She’s just going to jump on my back right now.’ He knew it was coming. Like, if it’s timed – I don’t even understand what the hell! That was ‘The Matrix’!”
“Beyond the amazingness of the dance, a crystal-clear storyline, on top of the fact that you did things with your bodies that human beings just can’t do. How do you top that?”
“There’s something to be said about when you choreography your own routines you know what you’re capable of doing. You know your limits. You know your strengths. And you guys choreographed a routine that didn’t just play to your strengths, it surpassed it. It transcended dance. It was so amazing.”

11-Yr-Old Kaylee Johnson has gained legions of fans since her recent appearance on “Little Big Shots,” when famous a cappella group Pentatonix joined her in singing a rousing rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
But what many fans don’t realize is that the little girl was diagnosed at an early age with mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. According to her teachers, Kaylee rarely spoke, much less sang, until just recently.
But that all changed last year, not long before she shot to viral fame with a Christmas-themed remake of “Hallelujah” with her choir at Killard House Special School in Northern Ireland.
