Damien – What I was looking for in gangs
“For a lot of us who get lost in the world, and aren’t loved as much as we think we should be loved, or aren’t cared for, we tend to find that other thing to fill that space. For me it was joining a gang..” — Damien
Paperback Guerrillas Whānau exclusive: my favourite taonga (treasured idea) from this kōrero was a complete reframing of the way I've been thinking about Destiny's Church at a societal vs individual impact level. You can read it here.
This episode is a bit different in that we spend a bit more time talking about how my mate Damien found himself on a path in which he wasn't thriving, and somewhere that in hindsight, he didn't want to be. We talk about how he ended up doing 7 stints in jail, joining gangs, and living a life of violence.
If you don't know what this looks or feels like, please listen.
