Synopsis: "Shattered Mirrors, Broken In Plain Sight", by Karl Allen Griggs is a epic story of triumph through the depths of adversity, dealing with the harsh realities of topics such as domestic violence, codependent relationships, sexual abuse, rape, suicide, addiction and homosexuality. Griggs, the author, relives in graphic detail his journey through life dealing with each one of these topics in isolation as a child growing up in Detroit Michigan. With each chapter the reader is transported to a place of emotional purgatory that will make even the strongest reminisce on situations in their past and question their own resilience. Griggs delivers a heartfelt performance as both prosecutor and defendant as he cross-examines his past demanding that the adults in his life take responsibility for their investment in his misery. The unapologetic roller coaster of experiences are seasoned with profound life lessons taught to Griggs by his grandmothers, who not knowing the abuse he faced, gave him the strength to pick up the pieces of his life, forgive his abusers, and take responsibility for his future. Now almost 20 years since the start of his journey, Griggs tells his story of victory reliving each moment of abuse and taking the bandages off of unhealed wounds, offering the reader the life lessons that changed his life and allowed him to move from the childhood and life of despair to a life of limitless possibilities. "My grandmother told me.": "Most people spend their whole lives looking in the mirror and never see themselves, because they only focus on what they are trying to cover up." She goes on to say, "When you look in the mirror you only see where you are standing and what is behind you, but your life, your future, and your happiness is on the other side of the mirror."
