Listen | Here’s one way to find resilience after a severe trauma

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Many of us can remember where we were on Sept. 11, 2001, but for some, the attacks on the Twin Towers hit closer to home. In this episode, small business owner and Tarboro community extraordinaire Inez Ribustello joins the podcast to talk about life after a big trauma. Elijah asks her how she found resilience after such a challenging experience, and Inez shares how she’s lost it and found it time and time again since.
