It's night and Silver Jones walks the streets near her daughter's house, dreaming of the luscious meal she'll order when she and her daughter reach the restaurant. In an instant, she is bludgeoned from behind by a stranger and beaten with a hammer.
Hold on. Headstrong refers not just to the severe PTSD Ms. Silver Jones received that night, but to her unconquerable spirit. A University Professor armed with unfailing love and support from her family and friends, she eventually returns to teaching. Listen in as Ms. Silver Jones inspires and encourages us through her experience in being Headstrong.
