Unbeknownst to me, Patrick Stewart is a vocal advocate for stopping violence against women. As a child, his father abused him and his mother. He was a man suffering from a condition that was casually diagnosed as Shell Shock: PTSD. The video below is Stewart answering a fan’s question about his work with various organizations and ends with an awesome hug.

Be warned, this video will cause you to uncontrollably leak fluid from your eyes..

  3. I’ve had occasion to meet Patrick Stewart a couple of times (he was a client of my boss). He was always a beautiful man to cater to, kind and genuine.

  6. What a lovely man. It is incredibly brave for him to speak out, not only about his own experiences, with compassion for both his mother and his father, but also as a man putting his neck on the line by broaching a difficult subject where he could be criticised by other men. Thanks for sharing it. Love the premise for your blog, by the way. I will read with interest…
