What Transforms A Person | Francis J. Dutch

Part of growing and living on this planet is changing. A person may change or transform basically because of their experience in life, whether for better or worse. Think back for a moment across the span of your life and identify how often you can honestly say you ‘transformed,’ in that you went through a period of thorough or dramatic change in form or character—a metamorphosis on an external or internal level. You can count them on the one hand. These are instances of ‘human transformation. Sometimes your life experiences, such as tragedy, abuse, discrimination, etc., transform YOU not for the betterment of yourself but for the worse. The book entitled Can’t Hobble The Elephant by Francis Dutch narrates the story of Josh O’Donnell, how an amiable young man transformed into a violent, ruthless killer during the American civil war.
