Every once in a while I have the chance to cross paths with someone special. Theo Fleury has quite the story to tell. He is brutally honest in his book Playing With Fire. It is his gut wrenching tale of suffering sexual abuse at the hands of his junior hockey coach. From there, he embarked on a dangerous path of self destruction. Today, Theo is in a good frame of mind. A peaceful place. He hopes his story will encourage victims of any type of abuse to find the courage and come forward. Do not keep secrets swept under the rug. Below are three links to the the converstaion I had with Theo. I do wish I’d been able to delve deeper into his journey. Take the time to listen and follow up with a facinating read of his book. Every parent with a boy or girl in sports should do so.
