This is the effect that the Pat Cronin Foundation presentation had on our students. The reason it is so powerful is the raw emotion and the severity of the consequences in the stories shared. Both Pat and Ben’s stories are easy to relate to and challenge students to re-frame their attitudes towards violence.
