Reaching out to pick one of the fragrant roses in front of our house on Chester Street, I screamed out in pain as a thorn drove deep into my young, sensitive skin. I stuck my throbbing finger into my mouth to lick off the trickle of blood, but even when the evidence of my wound was gone, the pain remained.
Cuts and bruises may heal, but the emotional wounds and trauma of an abusive childhood linger on. So it has been for Shawn Alex Nemeth.
Thorns of Chester Street is a candid story about overcoming the terrors of the past and finding the courage to come out of the shadows. Nemeth paints an honest, intimate, and courageous portrait of his journey to self-compassion, forgiveness, and emotional healing. For people who feel weighed down, carrying shameful secrets, Shawn’s life illustrates that freedom, love, and acceptance are waiting for them on the other side of honesty.

INSPIRATION, RESILIENCE, and TRANSFORMATION are the defining elements that accelerate my life and purpose. They are the determining factors that continually keep me moving forward to greater depths of wholeness, awareness, and authenticity. My personal journey, life experience and faith have led me to believe that there is immeasurable value within each human life.

For the heart that is open to truth and seeks enlightenment there is no darkness that cannot be illuminated, no hurt that cannot be healed, and no bridge that cannot be crossed.
