    Quitting Was Not An Option: A Journey of Perseverance and Resilience





  • Description:

    When he was seven years old, Dr. John E. Gray suffered the tragic death of his mother by breast cancer. This began a journey in which his childhood was torn away from him and replaced by isolation, neglect, hurt and abuse at the hands of those who were supposed to protect him. Yet in this darkness, he held on to a promise he made his mother the last time he saw her alive. She told her baby boy, “Be good.” He told his mother that he would, and has lived his life keeping that promise. In Quitting Was Not An Option: A Journey of Perseverance and Resilience, Dr. Gray takes readers on a journey through a childhood of loss, heartbreak, and isolation as he clings to a promise. He has overcome the perils of an uncaring foster care system, abusive relatives, uncaring teachers who publicly called him stupid, and hurtful loneliness to earn a doctorate degree and become an administrator at the same university where he had to spend holidays on campus alone because he had nowhere to go. His story is for anyone who refuses to be broken by circumstances, and instead chooses to live with an unbreakable spirit. Through sheer determination, strength, and resilience he overcame the unimaginable. He is proof that, when faced with extreme odds and obstacles, the power of the human spirit can endure and transcend. Dr. Gray believes we all possess the power to transform our tragedies into triumph.
