Chappale Burton witnessed the tragic murder of his mother and stepfather in his childhood playground in Chicago, Illinois. He has gone on to live an inspirational life and teaches others how to move on from tragedy and find forgiveness in your heart.
In his book titled, Choose Happiness, Chappale talks about his difficult childhood. He was physically and emotionally abused by his stepfather who would sometimes starve him as a toddler. He goes on to describe what he saw and heard as he witnessed the murder of his parents. He has not only forgiven the assailant, but has now dedicated his life to sharing the tools and techniques that he used to overcome the possible negative effects that this could have had on his life. Chappale has a degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and started his professional career as a Milieu Therapist for one of the country’s leading psychiatric hospitals. Today, he is an international Motivational Speaker and Coach who currently resides in Los Angeles, California. He speaks to audiences around the world about his philosophies and principles.
My hope is that you hear something universal Chappale’s story, that you connect with his raw honesty and vulnerability. Perhaps you will realize, you are not alone… I want for everyone to be at peace with who they are (warts and all) and to learn, grow & heal through hearing another person’s story.
