Tonight's special guest is Evelyn Mejil from Essex County, NJ, a survivor and the newly appointed executive director of Wynona's House (www.wynonashouse.com) a Child Advocacy Center in Newark. The mission of Wynona's House is to promote justice and healing for child victims of abuse and violence by coordinating investigative, prosecution, treatment, and prevention services for children and families. The vision of Wynona's House is to create an community where children are safe, families, are strong, and victims become children again, by: 1) Reducing the number of times a child is interviewed during the investigation phase to a single interview conducted by a specially trained interviewer in a child-friendly environment, 2) Increasing successful prosecution through improved evidence collection, victim-witness advocacy, and partnerships with municipal law enforcement, 3) Promoting the research and development of innovative evidence-based behavioral health treatments for children and families, and 4) Strengthening the safety net for children through community outreach, education, and prevention efforts

Special guest John Mark Clubb

8pm EST, 5pm PAC

recommended show
Tonight's special guest is John Mark Clubb from New York City, child abuse survivor, activist, speaker and author. As a boy growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, he endured years of abuse by his parents. John tried to find refuge in the regimentation of a distinguished 22 year military career and in multiple marriages. But his efforts to deal with the trauma of his experiences led him on a self-destructive path that left a trail of broken people and dreams. He now works as a commercial pilot for a major airline. In 2009, Mr. Clubb published "Boys Cry Too," a seminal account of his sexual abuse by his father, a former Baptist minister, and the physical abuse by his mother. In the book he chronicles his hidden pain, negative echoes, self defeating behaviors, multiple negative relationships with both men and women and finally the healing journey which lead him to the place where he was able to say, "I forgive you," to his abusers. In doing so he freed himself of the chains of his father’s crimes against him. In his off time from flying airplanes, John Mark Clubb (www.JohnMarkClubb.com) is an author, business owner, screenwriter, short story teller, playwright, competitive rower and father. His favorite expression is, "Abuse does not have to be a life sentence."

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa (aka Petra Luna) from San Francisco, who'll be with us to talk about the special events concerning Male Abuse Awareness Week, Dec 1-8, which will launch with a Saturday night Big Benefit Concert Event in Van Nuys, CA (Dec 1st). NAASCA founder, Bill Murray, will once again participate in this event. The abuse and neglect of children is a terrible tragedy, and the effects on the lives of children, the adults they become and their families, friends and coworkers can be profound. Males abused as children suffer some unique harms and face special challenges to healing. Because boys and young men are told by society that they must be strong and brave, they feel guilty and ashamed about having been abused, dominated and vulnerable. Male victims are much less likely to tell anyone what happened to them, let alone to seek professional help to deal with their hurt and go down a path of healing. Some get lost in self-destructive behaviors, seeking refuge in alcohol and drug addictions, sexual addictions, self-mutilation and even suicide. The Petra Luna www.Help4Guys.org web site explains these stigmas and stereotypes, and offers ongoing assistence.

Tonight's special guest is Dan Williams from Rockford, Illinois, whose specific areas of expertise are assessment of perpetrators and the effects as well as resolution of life trauma. Dan has over thirty years experience in primary care medicine and occupational medicine. He's worked directly with companies and OSHA record-ability. Dan is currently working with patients at Now Care, an urgent care center that also offers psychotherapy for individuals experiencing life trauma. Dan's newest book, an autobiographical account of sex abuse and its lasting effects, "Above His Shoulders," is available on Amazon. "There is always hope," writes Mr Williams. "Each day is a blessing. It takes perseverance, introspection, and actual implementation to move through any trauma. Never give up trying. Continue to look for the positive and move forward. One can always find the benefit in traumas. It may be in the form of someone you meet to reach out a helping hand or an awakening you experience that before went unrecognized. Your path of life will undergo many changes. Recognize them. Accept them. A new direction may be all you need." Dan Williams devotes himself more and more to helping those with life trauma, and has launched his latest web site for this purpose: www.LifeTrauma.com

Mort has seen nearly everything including a lot of violence. He's seen people being shot and an angry trucker trying to run someone over. He's also seen many trafficked and / or run away teenage girls being used as prostitutes. He has been approached himself on several occasions. Mr Moore has also seen significant police activity, including police posing as prostitutes who try to bring to justice truckers who take advantage of the young girls. Mort himself has been instrumental in helping a few young girls. He joins us tonight ready to talk about all he has seen on the road and all that he knows.

Tonight's special guest is Ajay Rochester, an Australian who now makes her home in Beverly Hills. An adopted child, Ajay has faced a number of challenges that might easily have broken her, including physical and emotional abuse in her childhood. A single mum to a boisterous and beguiling son whose Asperger's Syndrome went undiagnosed for the first five years of his life, Ajay found herself obese, alone and running out of options. Her diary about her weight-loss lessons that transformed over 300 pounds of depression, eating disorders and damaging yo-yo diets became her first book, Confessions of a Reformed Dieter. Ms Rochester become a role model for women everywhere struggling with obesity, well being and self-esteem issues. She wrote 4 more books on health and wellness, and established a thriving member-driven online community and support network called Healthy Body Club. A former host of "The Biggest Loser" TV show, Ajay is again struggling with her weight, but has taken on an additional and even more important issue, her Bullying Bites TV campaign, partly in response to her son's life experience. Now 13 years old, but doing well with his high functioning Asperger's, he's been bullied one way or another his entire life. As Ajay says, "Humans of all different kinds deserve an equal amount of love, respect and dignity."

Tonight's special guest is Dan Hays from Texas, abuse and PTSD survivor and author of "Freedom's Just Another Word." Dan was diagnosed with chronic and severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from two incidents in his childhood, only remembered when he was an adult. In 1987, as his life was spinning out of control, Dan was trying to put together pieces of his past, to remember some piece of his past that struggled to come to the surface. He was broke, unable to go look for a job, at times suicidal and mystified by it all. After years of struggle with PTSD symptoms, Dan remembered a violent incident with his alcoholic father when he was 17. Dan's book describes the steps he took, out of desperation, to try to make sense of his life. As he revealed old wounds and began to heal them, he was able to embrace the journey toward forgiveness of his father. In 2003 Dan began to remember events when he was eight years old, when his grandmother threatened to have him locked up in an insane asylum if he became a writer. This led to a substantial writer's block and was the second source of his PTSD. Dan is working on his second book, to be entitled "Healing the Writer," which describes his healing process from the abuse by his grandmother, through a number of inner child exercises, therapy and using other healing tools. The book will describe how he has reclaimed his writing gift, and now works as a freelance writer.

Tonight's special guest, Lee Ann Mead, abused from four to sixteen years old by her step father, is a survivor from Oregon. She's the founder and president of "Sparks of Hope." Their Mission is to empower children who are survivors of physical or sexual abuse to thrive by providing special services to encourage hope, and by creating opportunities that will develop trust and healing so they can achieve life-long success. Lee Ann says, "To accomplish our mission we grant wishes to these children. Abused children usually only wish for the simplest gifts, such as a new pair of shoes, musical instruments, lessons, a birthday party. The simple things we take for granted they never have had the opportunity to experience." She continues, "To encourage continued healing and success, we will offer mentoring and camps to teach them to go from victim to survivor, survivor to thriver, and from thriver to warrior. These life skills will allow them to someday be mentors themselves." According to a recent OregonLive article: The kids will attend a week-long girls or boys summer camp for three years in a row. The first camp will focus on taking the kids from the "victim" mentality to "survivor." The second will push kids past the anger to become a "thriver," and in the third and final camp, kids will become mentors. Mead says "Sparks of Hope" is collaborating with child psychologists, counselors and attorneys to create a safe and effective camp model. They hope to start the camps in summer 2013.

Tonight's special guest is Evan Katz, M.C., LPC, MAC, from Georgia, an abuse survivor, counselor, speaker and author, who's often known as "The Anger Guy." His book, "Inside the Mind of an Angry Man" gives us a look into a mind that's often in intense turmoil, and shows us the way out. Evan explains, "I grew up in a world of chaos. My father was an angry, aggressive alcoholic lawyer who used his brains and power to bully and brow beat my family into fear, darkness and submission. My mother divorced my father when I was five, but by then it was too late. As my [younger] brother said, 'You had to live with him. I didn't.' By the age of seven I had concluded that I was not worth loving–that I was no good." The angry man is typically described as abusive - emotionally, verbally and sometimes even physically. He rages like a hurricane, hurting those closest to him .. completely unaware that his anger is fueled by intense and painful feelings, including: shame, self-hatred, fear of failure, loneliness and rejection. If you're an angry man, or if you feel hurt and mistreated by one, this book will open doors of understanding to help you bring peace to your life and your home.

Tonight's special guest is Don Abernathy of Long Beach, California, who, with his brother David, runs a crime fighting organization called "Cuffed and Wanted." They generate a twice-a-month publication and web site (www.CuffedAndWanted.com) that educates and informs citizens about the people and services in their community, principally the area of Los Angeles County. Included is information on people who have recently been arrested or are currently wanted by city, county, state and federal law enforcement. The public can view daily arrest reports from around the county (about 800 arrests are made each day) and can also view current "wanted" info (they note that about 15% of the registered Sexual Offenders in LA County are in violation of their registration status). The bi-weekly "Cuffed and Wanted" publication empowers citizens with what is happening around them in their communities and neighborhoods, with an aim to give the community a greater awareness and understanding of what is going on, and knowledge is power. The many current changes in the criminal justice system and their impact on the cities, counties and state, are a concern to everyone. "Cuffed and Wanted" is a valuable publication for all law enforcement agencies and law abiding citizens in the diverse communities.

Tonight's special guest, Hannah Spivey, was raised in south Florida, but now hails from Georgia. Like many young introverted girls, she experienced bullying from her peers in middle school. She found comfort in being able to escape through her writing and found it as a way of release. Her new novel is "Ebony the Beloved," the story of a young lady who was condemned and rejected by her parents and peers all of her life. Like many other black girls who grew up weary to face life, she struggles with the adversities of being impoverished and accepted for who she is. After being mentally, emotionally and sexually abused, Ebony still struggles to fight her way to the top, never fully realizing what her worth is until she finds love and acceptance from one of the faculty members at her school, a man who originally seems to be an answer to her dreams. But his hidden sadistic and sexually devious desires for her erupt into rage, abuse, and imprisonment. She is also subjected to his domineering mother, who hates her and abuses her at every opportunity, leaving Ebony beaten and bloody and begging for the pain to stop. Ms. Spivey is not only an author, but also a Women's Empowerment Supporter and Domestic Abuse Activist.

Tonight's special guest is Deborah Talley, child abuse survivor, a Californian whose parents had migrated from the Deep South. As a young child she was drawn to education, when school became a sought-out oasis. Young Deborah recognized that God loved her and had provided her, and everyone else, with gifts and talents. She's worked in the private and non profit arenas, is a writer, producer of the "Rare Woman" talk radio show, and has counseled people from every walk of life. Ms. Talley is a spiritual coach and has written a journal workbook that she uses in tandem with her “Maps and Lanterns” classes (often done over SKYPE) where she guides participants to their highest life. As she writes, "After suffering abuse in childhood, decades of being in a maze of hurt, and self-loathing, darkness, I was able to forgive, heal, and find my purpose, using God-given tools. I now share those Maps and Lanterns with others! Join other women in classes designed to bring you to a place of forgiveness and healing, from your own home! The class on forgiveness consists of eight one-hour online group or individual sessions." Her success is based on her genuine love for others (and their success) coupled with her authentic ability to honor their gifts.

Tonight's special guest is Karen Spears Zacharias from Washington State, investigative journalist and author whose most recent work, "A Silence of Mockingbirds; The Memoir of a Murder," follows the case of young Karly Sheehan. The author recounts the community's failures to save Karly, whose daycare teacher is the first to notice signs of abuse -- Karly's missing hair, bruises, and change in mood -- and calls the authorities. In a sad error of shortsightedness, they target Karly's biological father as the primary suspect. This mistake leads them to overlook Shawn Field, her mother's live-in boyfriend, as the potential abuser. The tragedy led to what is known in the state of Oregon as “Karly's Law.” It mandates that children who exhibit suspicious physical injuries leading to a child abuse investigation must have photos of those injuries reviewed by a designated medical professional within the first 48 hours of that report. The book is not just the story of a horrible crime committed by someone who seems likely mentally unbalanced if not outright evil, but also of how the crime could have been avoided and a child saved from a brutal tortuous death.

According to Ms. Jordan: "Please understand that sexual molestation brutally violates a child's mind, destroying all traces of innocence. And more often than not, it takes with it their security and self-worth while imprisoning them in a painful world of silence and guilt." She goes on, "When I finally found the courage to let my father's deeds tumble from my lips, I did not know what to expect, but I never in a million years would have guessed that my mother would turn on me. Her words of betrayals did far more damage to me than my father's deeds. They spoke volumes to the fact that she really did not care about me, which my father obviously knew. It is because she was so expressive with her dislike for me that probably made my father know he could get away with violating me."

Now they travel abroad sharing their inspirational stories in an educational program to offer complete healing to victims, bystanders, bullies, and families.

Instead of taking revenge on his bullies, he had a change of heart, forgave them, and wanted to help them. He wanted to travel all over the USA with their program even though he was on the heart transplant list. Sadly, just as they were getting ready to go, Brian passed away. After he died, his family found a change jar he'd been saving. It was then they knew they were to collect change, so they could do what Brian wanted .. go all over to change hearts and save lives!

Grace wrote her book to assist those who desire to overcome depression, low self worth, dependencies, addictions, loneliness, fear or excessive anger, cause by the aftermath of any number of emotional wounds. The chapters were intentionally kept short for the purpose of allowing the reader to digest small portions at a time. "As you read my story," she says, "you may be a little shocked at my bluntness. Keep in mind that the recovery journey often becomes very messy before the individual is able to overcome all the negative emotions involved. I have purposely written the book this way so that those walking through the recovery process may draw comfort from knowing that someone has walked this path before them and felt the same emotions that they are presently battling with." She continues, "Face your fears, work at recovering, never, never give up and you too can overcome the shadows of unwanted emotions."

Now in recovery, he's been telling his story in the hopes he can help others come forward. As Vale says, "At first, it's really nerve-wracking to tell people, because it's a really big secret and you keep it for a while. But, the more that you talk about it and the more relaxed you feel, especially if it's someone who you trust." Vale's parents became especially alarmed when they discovered he'd turned to "cutting" as a way of dealing with his pain. His mom, herself a child abuse survivor, now writes a BLOG where she explains, "I wanted to put something out there for other moms who discover that their wonderful, beautiful sons are using their forearms to carve out their pain. When facing a dark and frightening battle, there is nothing more assuring than knowing that we're not facing it alone. It's my hope that by writing about us, our joys and our struggles, another parent, or friend, or family is encouraged."

Tonight's special guest is James Allen from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, one-time US Congressional candidate and author of a just-released book, "The Forgotten Child - by Jim Allen, father of abducted son" (www.forgottonchild.us). An electrical contractor for 20 years, Jim's son was abducted (illegally retained) in Colombia, South America. Jim found very quickly our government's inability and unwillingness to step in and step up for his son, a United States citizen, and get him returned to the United States. Jim also found that politics and diplomacy were put before the peoples interest and protection. Jim Allen says, "I am the father of an abducted child. I ran for Congress in NC to take back the Constitution for your child and mine. The Sixth district in NC has been a rudderless ship in a sea of confusion for years, I'd hoped to captain this ship back to the land of jobs, fair play, hope, and the constitution. I am also a member of action for abducted children." Jim lost his bid for a US Congressional seat in the 4th District of North Carolina by only 200 votes. The only thing that has been preserved in Jim's fight for justice has been his self respect, and his respect for others. In his struggles for justice, he has met many people that have been placed below and behind by the ones elected to serve us.

Mr Brick launched the SMART newsletter (Stop Mind Control and Ritual Abuse Today) in 1995 to help stop ritual abuse and to help those who have been ritually abused. The web site is at www.ritualabuse.us and they maintain a Yahoo e-group. They work toward this goal by disseminating information on the connections between secretive organizations, ritual abuse, and mind control, by encouraging healing from the damage done by ritual abuse and mind control, and by encouraging survivors to network. In 1988, they held the first Annual Ritual Abuse, Secretive Organizations and Mind Control Conference, which helps unite those who have suffered from and those working to stop ritual abuse. The 15th Annual Conference (a three day event) is Aug 10 to 12, in Windsor Locks, Connecticut.

Tonight's special guest is Annie O'Sullivan from Oregon, child abuse survivor, author and advocate for adult survivors of child sexual abuse. Annie says she's, "Advocating for adults who have survived childhoods of sexual abuse, be it violent or not, [and] have a need to be validated, recognized and heard. How frustrating to have lived a life so colored by abuse that one is not allowed to discuss it in polite company. How sad to be careful not to offend someone with who you really are, when the trurely offensive individual is likely lurking around happily." Her book, "Can You Hear Me Now?" is a collection of short stories built around art therapy, old photos, and the memories of a child. It drops you into the mind of the child as she tells her shocking story from a very different and important point of view; hers. The reader is taken on an intimate life journey through the eyes of this child’s confusion, misunderstanding, will to persevere, and seek goodness in the world. It’s the true story of careening through her life with her dysfunctional family as she experiences violence and abuse without a compass, to ultimately, against all odds, prosper. It is also the story of the toll taken 50 years later on the body, caused by mental and physical abuse. This is not your typical survivor story. You won't be able to put it down. “Can You Hear Me Now” is the voice of a child you as you have never heard it before.

Tonight's special guest is Dr. Pamela Pine from Washington, DC, founder and CEO CEO of "Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc.", a non-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization, with a Mission to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide through a focus on Awareness, Prevention and Healing programming. Child sexual abuse (CSA) is a silent epidemic throughout the United States and the world, creating social havoc for the children, adult survivors, and society. It can be prevented and it can be treated with a conscious and sustained effort; Stop the Silence helps provide that effort. Their most recent challenge is to bring "To Kill A Kelpie," about two brothers who share a secret for the first time, to international audiences. After performing to enormously appreciative Off-Broadway crowds in April, the next stop is the 17th Annual Interpersonal Violence and Trauma Conference in San Diego, CA. "Stop the Silence" is also known for its annual "Race to Stop the Silence" event held in Washington DC each April and for its partnerships with such organizations as "The Lamplighters Movement."

Tonight's special guest is Cynthia Bland, a child abuse survivor from Ottawa, founder of the Canadian organization "Voice Found" (www.voicefound.ca). Voice Found was born from a place of deep depression and a desire to help others who may be feeling similarly. After holding onto a secret for about 42 years, a question posed by a therapist opened the floodgates. That one question started the founder on a journey during which she felt compelled to share so that others could find some solidarity and support and know that they are not alone. That question was quite simple but had never been asked before. The question was: “Were you sexually abused as a child?” It was not at that moment that the organization formed, but it was at that moment that Cynthia's voice was found. Now she asks a number of "What if?" questions: What if there was a way to help other survivors feel worthy and whole? -- What if colleagues and employers could help survivors in active recovery? -- What if funds could be found to provide self-care programs for survivors? -- What if there was a way to help society understand the effects of childhood sexual abuse on its adult survivors? -- What if people understood that the often the root cause of drug abuse, promiscuity, teenage pregnancy, alcoholism, perfectionism is a result of childhood sexual abuse? -- What if there was a way to PREVENT the sexual abuse of children? -- What if we could get people to TALK about this taboo subject?

A middle school counselor since 1993, Julie holds a bachelors degree in social work and a masters degree in counseling from Indiana University. She is also a certified, level III alcohol counselor in the state of Colorado. She knows first hand the ramifications of childhood abuse. In her book, children travel with a pair of friendly fish as they learn about what parts of our bodies we share with others, and learn what the boundaries of appropriate touching are in a very non-threatening way. Ms Federico is concerned that the many misconceptions and misunderstandings about the issues of child abuse need to be dispelled through honest and frank conversations with children, adolescents and adults. Her second book, "Anger is OKAY Violence is NOT," was published recently. Children enjoy learning important information from a pair of fish. Parents marvel at the simple straightforward language and use of sea creatures that create this message all children must hear. For more info, please see the web site: www.JulieFederico.com

Tonight's special guest is Jim Heaney from Chicago, survivor and author of "Divine Child: Evil vs the Angels of Stoney Island," a story about child abuse and children abuse healing. Jim says, "When your own family doesn't work out, pay attention. There's probably someone else to help you grow up." For Jim Heaney, it was the angels of Stony Island. After being molested by a neighbor, ten-year old Jimmy is abandoned by the people who should be protecting him. His grades and behavior plummet, and he starts drinking. But there are still bright spots in his life in Chicago's Stony Island neighborhood including baseball down by the railroad tracks, and his parish school. The priest and teachers at St. Ailbes can't fix his family, but they still manage to give the desperate boy the help he needs to survive. Survival is not recovery however. The dark legacy of Jim's sexual abuse continues to haunt his adult life. He narrowly escapes prison, and although he quits drinking, unresolved anger threatens to destroy every good relationship in his life. "Divine Child: Evil vs. The Angels of Stony Island" tells how young Jimmy built on compassion first experienced in Stony Island to climb from despair to recovery. He shares his story in the hope that it will give other survivors of child abuse the tools to make new life for themselves. A child abuse author and speaker, Jim has spoken about child abuse and memory healing in the context of his recovery from the after-effects of sexual abuse and addiction issues to thousands of adults and young people at conferences throughout North America.

Tonight's special guest is Dr. Janet Rosenzweig, author of " The Sex-Wise Parent: The Parent's Guide to Protecting Your Children, Strengthening Your Family, and Talking to Your Kids about Sex, Abuse and Bullying." Dr. Rosenzeig writes, "Abusers count on the fact that kids don't like to speak to their parents about sex, and you don't want that to be true on your family. So use the news — with the Sandusky trial starting in a few weeks and on-going clergy trials in many major media markets, there will be plenty of opportunity!" She says to use this as an opportunity to tell your kids that people who sexually abuse children put their own pleasure above the pain they cause children. Remind them that sometimes they dress it up like a friendship or a love relationship to confuse the child (or teen!). Remind them that anyone who wants to be sexual with a young person is selfish at best and a criminal at worse. Dr. Rosenzweig's credentials as a sex educator led to a position with one of the first sex abuse projects in the U.S. more than three decades ago. Her experience as a caseworker, help-line counselor, professor, researcher, author, public official, child-abuse prevention specialist and mother inspired the creation of a resource so that parents can do what public systems cannot — ensure the sexual health and safety of their children and family. An inspirational speaker and teacher, Dr. Rosenzweig is devoted to reaching professionals and parents everywhere with the advice and techniques they need to raise sexually safe and healthy kids.

Tonight's special guest is Rachel Grant, MA, from San Francisco, a Trauma Recovery & Relationship Coach, who was abused as a child by her grandfather in Oklahoma. Whether you are an adult survivor of child abuse seeking support in your journey of recovery or are dissatisfied with your relationships, coaching helps you explore new possibilities and bring about real change, because, as Ms Grant says, "What you think, you create!" Rachel brings to the table a passionate belief that her clients do not have to remain trapped or confronted daily by the thoughts or behaviors that result from abuse. Through her own journey of recovery from sexual abuse, she has also gained insight and understanding about what it takes to overcome trauma. This makes it possible for her to relate to and appreciate her clients' struggles intimately. Based on her desire to foster community, intimacy, and connection, Rachel has dedicated much of her time to understanding relationships and communication. She developed her Trauma Recovery & Relationship coaching programs based on her educational training and lessons learned from her own journey. Clients learn to identify and break the patterns of thought and behavior that keep them from recovering from past abuse or making changes in their relationships. "I'd like to offer a FREE gift to listeners," she says, "Parts 1 & 2 of my guidebook: Beyond Surviving: The Final Stage in Recovery from Sexual Abuse."

Tonight's special guest, Larry Fike (M. Phil.) from Joshua Tree, CA, describes himself as a philosophical counselor and says, "excellence is normal." The author of "Piker" and two other books, Mr Fike explains, "Medical doctors are trained to focus on the care of the body. Clerics, on the care of the soul." He goes on, "Philosophers, on the care of the mind. Which is most important is disputable, as all things are. But it is the vocation of the philosopher, as thinker, to consider all parts of what it is to be human, since the judgments arrived at in the other two domains depend upon the ideas that are accepted, rejected, or left in abeyance. Ideas are the domain in which the philosopher lives and gives." The goal of Larry's philosophical counseling services is not to provide assistance to those who have drug addictions, need medication, or struggle with medical mental health issues. Rather, it is to assist those who may be struggling with rationally-based issues that don't strike clients as having a clear solution. For example, those who may be struggling over whether or not to pursue a certain career, whether or not to wed, or whether or not to relocate - among many similar issues - are all welcome.

Tonight's special guest is Barbara Dorris, abuse survivor and Outreach Director for the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). SNAP is the largest, oldest and most active support group for women and men wounded by religious authority figures (priests, ministers, bishops, deacons, nuns and others). An independent and confidential organization, SNAP has no connections with the church or church officials. SNAP was founded by Chicago's Barbara Blaine in 1988. Since then, SNAP has helped thousands of survivors, offering support in person, (via monthly self-help group meetings in chapters across the country), over the phone, online, and twice-a-year at national meetings. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests also provides a safe and productive outlet for the passion many survivors feel toward preventing future abuse. The SNAP web site exists to provide support and knowledge to all victims of clergy abuse, to help educate the public, and to help ensure that in future generations, children will be safe.

Tonight's special guest is Jerome Elam, child abuse survivor writer for the Washington Times, Communities section. Mr Elam says, "I have struggled against many things in my life including childhood sexual abuse and somehow I found a way to survive." Raised in the South, he joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of seventeen and spent the next eight years seeing the world. After his enlistment was finished he attended college and graduated to work in the Biotechnology sector. Jerome continues, "Writing is my passion and it keeps me in touch with the wealth everyone holds deep inside their hearts and minds." Two recent samples of his writing can be found on the NAASCA web site under our Feature Articles section. One is entitled "The tragedy of youth suicide: Children searching for hope" in which Mr Elam discusses his own "successful" suicide. The second article "An end to silence: Child sex abuse victims speaking out" has an appeal that can often be heard from NAASCA members. It's directed to those of us who have survived child abuse being the voice for the still suffering children who have no voice.

Tonight's special guest is Michelle Bless, survivor, activist and author of the book "Out of the Darkness: the Michelle Bless Story" in which a young girl is abused by her family and ostracized for being associated with Satan. Out of the Darkness is her story of redemption. Born in the northeastern United States to parents from the Caribbean, author Michelle Bless was raised in a home of violence and suspicion. Her father beat her mother and siblings but spared Michelle because of her perceived association with Satan. Even so, this did not save her from other abuses: she witnessed incidents of violence, incest and other horrible, unthinkable acts. One hot summer day in 1997, Michelle writes, she "was introduced to the Lord and denounced Satan," thus beginning the process of giving her life to the Lord. After two years of demonic attacks, she was fully delivered and never looked back. Today she lives for the Lord. Ms Bless says her firsthand knowledge of how low a life can plummet to the depths of despair enables her to understand and relate to what others are facing as they struggle to find God in their lives. Michelle is on a mission to bring as many lost souls to God as possible.

Tonight's special guest is Sue Julsen from Nevada, a survivor and thriver and author of "Bitter Memories." Largely autobiographical, Ms Julsen has chosen to use fictional names so as to protect some of those in the story from the horrors that actually occurred. Abducted by her father when she was three, the book's main character, Sarah, found herself in a world of criminal neglect and unfathomable oppression as her father and stepmother perpetrated more and more horrible acts of verbal, mental and sexual abuse on the innocent girl. So continually terrified was Sarah, that she began to form separate personalities so that she herself did not have to face the hideous reality of her day to day life. Only through the nightmare pictures that the other personalities sometimes presented to her while she slept did Sarah have any hint about the horrific abuse she was being subjected to. The personalities would block out time for Sarah and bear the horror of the experiences themselves so that their dear Sarah would not have to. This tale of the author's early life, a life on the run, featuring starvation, fear and molestation, is a truly unnerving and gripping account of the extremes of neglect and mistreatment a child can undergo. "Bitter Memories" is dedicated to all adult survivors of abuse and is written with the hope that exposing these horrors will help to prevent them from happening to others. "Trophy Murders" is the fictionalized sequel to her first book, and she is currently working on the third book in this series.

Tonight's special guest is Lorena Noe from Maryland, child abuse survivor and author of "Daddy's Secret; Til Death Do Us Part." A true story of betrayal, incest, and healing, the narrative describes an average little girl born into a family of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Lorena's story is about her triumphant struggle of survival and healing! Her mother was nineteen, and her father was twenty, when she was born, and shortly after her birth her father enlisted in the Marines, and her mother went to Virginia to work. Her grandmother became her mother image for four years, and gave her the stability of a strong Christian foundation. After a highly successful career as a business woman, Noe's goals now are to help children and adults who are victims of child abuse. Lorena hopes that as a survivor, she can now get the public to see the private struggle anyone can fall victim to. Ms Noe writes, "Child abuse is more than bruises and broken bones. While physical abuse might be the most visible sign, other types of abuse, such as emotional abuse or child neglect, also leave deep, long lasting scars. A history of a childhood abuse is not a life sentence. There is hope, healing, and a chance to recover the self lost in childhood." Drawing on her own experience as a survivor of emotional neglect, Lorena Noe demonstrates that through healing she can help lead you through grieving your lost childhood, to become your own parent, and integrate the healing aspects of spiritual, physical, and emotional recovery into your adult life.

Tonight's special guest is Justin Berry, 26, a child abuse survivor from California, who was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2006, and now devotes himself to fighting child pornography on the Internet. At 13 years old, Justin was a typical "boy next door." Between homework and band practice, he found time to run a legitimate small business creating websites. A self-described "computer nerd," Justin was excited to get an inexpensive webcam. By hooking up his webcam, Justin unintentionally became a fresh face in a dark world where men prey on vulnerable teenagers and children. He had no idea that his new friends were adults — an online community of pedophiles discussing strategy, sharing advice and carefully planning his seduction. By age 16, Justin's young face had become extremely popular among Internet pedophiles. Fans began asking to meet him in person. At first Justin enjoyed his website's financial success, but he began using drugs and found his life spiraling out of control. He didn't know who to turn to... until he met Kurt Eichenwald, a reporter for The New York Times, the man who was to eventually able to help Justin turn his life back around. Justin's story, while shocking, is only one case in a huge industry that is destroying hundreds of children's lives. "They are being lured into it from their bedrooms," Kurt says. Justin says he is as surprised as anybody by the dark turn his life took at age 13. "I never would have guessed that would happen to me," he says. "This can happen to any kid."

Tonight's special guest is Monica Harmon from Los Angeles, one of Bill's long-time friends and fellow community-policing advocate. Monica has recently been devoting her seemingly unending energy to an Anti-Bullying campaign. Partnering with the Los Angeles Police Department, the LA Unified School District, local politicians and other community members, Monica has been making presentations at local public schools, parks and town-hall style meetings. She uses inter-active techniques to carry the message to kids that bullying in person and in cyber space is unacceptable behavior, and giving them tools and techniques to combat the problem. In recent years, bullying has been brought to the forefront of society due to the fact that media outlets have highlighted various tragic deaths as a result of bullying. There is a global fight against bullying, not to take it, not to promote it, not to engage in it. At the end of Harmon’s presentation, she has all the students stand up and make a pledge, “I am a strong student. I'm a leader. I will treat others with respect. I refuse to bully others and I promise to tell an adult when I see bullying. I refuse to watch, I refuse to laugh, I refuse to join in. I will be a good role model, I will not make others feel bad. I'm a do-something person, not a do-nothing person. I will help change my school. Sticking up for someone is the right thing to do. I will not post negative comments on the computer. I will stand up and speak out against bullying, and I will make a difference in my school”

From peer counseling and student outreach programs in high school, to hospital work in medical and Psychiatric settings in college. I have worked with kindergartners as well as gang members, group-care and with families in their homes. All of this experience has culminated in the last 15 years with my work with sexually abused and abusive boys." He continues, " I employ creativity and humor in order to stop unhelpful patterns of behavior and replace them with more pro-social and predictable behaviors."

Specifically by fostering education and collaborations which facilitate the type of awareness required to prevent criminal conduct against the youngest and most vulnerable members of society.

Tonight's special guest is Don Dymer of Florida, representing "The Diana Screen" from Single Source Services. The Diana Screen is an innovation far beyond criminal background checks. It is an easy to use, risk management tool that will help you keep your agency's children safe from sexual abuse. Behind The Diana Screen are 18 years of research, 6 NIMH grants, and 2 pilot studies with the Episcopal Church Pension Fund and The Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The Diana Screen reduces the risk that your group's children will be molested and reduces the risk that your group will face sexual misconduct lawsuits. Named after a little girl who grew up in foster care yet was sexually abused by a caregiver, a man whose actions went unsuspected for over 30 years. Despite the love of her adoptive parents, Diana and her family suffered a final tragedy when she ended her own life. In honor of Diana, and those who have survived child sexual abuse, the screen designed to protect children is named The Diana Screen. Most victims of childhood sexual abuse never report their abuse. Their abusers are never charged and are employed or volunteer and continue their reign of terror on the children, in the work or volunteer environment you are providing. The Diana Screen helps stop a pedophile from gaining access to children within those organizations that use the tool.

One of today's most passionate activists when it comes to the horrors, the shame and the preventative steps we can all take when it comes to sexual abuse, is aspiring actor and model, Drew Carrillo. Many know Carrillo for his role in the movie "Vampires Suck," in which he played the part of a cast member of "Jersey Shore." He also has been featured in many popular television advertisements, the most recent being the "NERF or Nothing" toy campaign. In an interview with San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, Drew who is now openly gay, tells his "backstory" .. that he was raped at the age of 16 while a dedicated member of a prominent movement called Teen Mania Ministries. Coming to terms with one's sexuality can be very dramatic and tough due to gender societal parameters. To make matters worse for Drew and other young followers like him, Teen Mania Ministries spends millions of dollars on educational materials telling members of the church that homosexual men are, in fact, often that way because they were raped. Drew was featured on the Dr Phil Show in 2005.

In 1995, Lee's abuser, Don Corley pled guilty to multiple counts as a child molester. He was sentenced to 30 years in jail. He came up for parole on January 31, 2012, but was denied, largely because of outstanding public support garnered in par through the web site www.30is30.com where the idea's presented that Don Corley should serve his full sentence. "30 years is 30 years" says the site. Readers will some enlightening encounter quotes from an interview with Mr Corley that show the mind of a child molester, including "“There was still that longing, that need,” how he'd “target” boys to become their “special friend.” He goes on to admit “There's nothing to cure this behavior” and about his "Dark Side" and how he's "a parents worst nightmare." Also included on the web site is the testimony of one of Mr Corley's victims, who writes, "From 1986 to 1992 I was molested by a man who most thought was a “pillar of our community” .. a leader in my Boy Scouts troop, a leader in my church. He had everyone fooled." And he goes on, "I think there are two kinds of child molesters. One is the trench-coat-wearing, playground-stalking, child-stealing kind of person. He's quick and violent. The other kind is the serial molester – he embeds himself in the community, wins the trust of families and children, and abuses that position of power to commit the molestation. Don Corley is the second type."

Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Irene van der Zande, who was inspired to found Kidpower by a frightening incident in 1985. As she was leading a group of young kids on a field trip, a man charged towards them and threatened to take one of the children. Irene put herself between the man and the children, including her own son and daughter, and shouted. The children were unhurt and soon recovered - but Irene was shaken and determined to do something to help people, especially children, build the skills and confidence to take charge of their own safety. Today, Kidpower is a growing international organization. Worldwide it has served over 2 million children, teens, and adults, including those with special needs, through workshops and educational resources. The future will bring more local services, more centers in countries all over the world, more books (see: The Kid Power Book) and educational materials, and more chances for Kidpower to affect the lives of people everywhere.

In 2000, Susan was faced with a very real issue in which she was unfamiliar .. the horrifying truth and reality of child sexual abuse (CSA).  As with most people, she was naïve and uneducated on this topic, so she began to research the horrific crime. What she found was so disturbing that she had never felt so helpless. "Since that time," she writes, "I have been trying to figure out a way to help children who are Sexually Abused. Every single day across America, countless numbers of children are sexually violated. And there are so many obstacles to overcome in order to help just one child, much less the multitudes of Sexually Abused children. The task seemed impossible once I read the statistics and learned about the failures of the systems in place that are supposed to protect children. The truth is that we live in a fallen world in which many children are robbed of their innocence by Sexual Predators.

Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Patricia A. McKnight. Ms McKnight (Tricia) is a child abuse survivor, and is author of the recently published "My Justice." She's a talk show host on Blog Talk Radio and an activist with Dreamcatchers for Abused Children. Tricia struggles to overcome the cruelty of her childhood. The man who assaulted her, her stepfather, tortured her for twelve long years, and his torment destroyed everything good in her life for the next thirty years. Her path in life became one of continued violence against her and although she was able to achieve professional success, she could never fully heal from the trauma inside. Tricia was a strong survivor though and continued to push her way through life despite these crimes against her. The recently written review from Peter Thomas Senese says, "Patricia A. McKnight has written a masterpiece novel so well written, so important to society, and so enlightening for others - those who know abuse equally as to those who pursue their dreams and liberties - that her "My Justice" shook the very foundation of who I am and my own interactions in this world, as I asked myself, "Am I doing enough?" Unquestionably, "My Justice" is a Call-To-Arms against abuse and neglect, but it too is a critically important road map, a blue print if you will, for others to learn by in order to break the cycles of abuse often found in a person's life when abuse occurs and is sustained beginning at an early age."

Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Nick Bryant. Mr Bryant is author of "The Franklin Scandal" the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. The ring's pimps were a pair of political power brokers who had access to the highest levels of our government. Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks. The legislators' efforts resulted in rash of mysterious deaths and the overpowering corruption of federal and local law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service, and Justice Department, effecting an immaculate cover-up of the trafficking network. The publisher is donating 50% of the book's proceeds to organizations that assist abused children. Author Nick Bryant writes, "The reality is that many perpetrators are not shady men in dirty, threadbare trench coats living in seedy hotels, but are, in fact, pillars of our community. Until our society addresses these facts and its institutions are willing to face embarrassment, instead of heaping more abuse upon victims, our national shame of rampant child abuse and its cover-up are unlikely to end."

"Invisible Scars" is a woman's story of hope, healing, and resiliency. During this inspirational journey, she reveals the invisible scars that have negatively impacted her throughout her life. Like many other women and men, she was abused by people she trusted at various points in her life. At 5 she was traumatized for the first time, ruining her self esteem. In high school she was assaulted again. "Within months, I entered into a relationship with a much older man and dropped out of school," she says. He eventually became the father of her three children, but Johnna spent eleven years emotionally abused and manipulated in the marriage, battling depression, anxiety, fear, and guilt. "I felt ashamed about my past, unhappy with my present, and unworthy of a future. It nearly destroyed me. Fortunately, the love of my children gave me the inspiration to survive." Her documentary will explore the journey she and other child abuse victims travel. On the outside she is a mother, daughter, wife, and friend who appears strong and confident. However, on the inside she has struggled with acknowledging and accepting the ugly and shameful truths of her past that have haunted her for most of her life.

Mr Budinsky is a volunteer, activist and public speaker with a focus on how child sexual abuse (CSA) and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) effects recovery from drugs and alcohol. "My life is the stuff movies are made of," says Bo in a YouTube appearance. He was repeatedly violated by multiple men and women, including by a therapist he went to for help. Addiction, shattered relation ships and failed careers followed. Mr Budinsky has worked hard for many years to get through the dark journey that was his life, and to emerge as a successful example of the miracle that can happen once a person enters into recovery. Bo was also one of the 200 men who appeared on two, hour-long Oprah Winfrey shows in late 2010 by way demonstrating that child sexual abuse isn't only an issue for little girls but that it effects many little boys, too. Now Bo travels around the country, speaking to groups and making appearances whenever he's asked.

Ms. Snortland has specialized in so-called women's issues, including the movement to achieve gender balance in institutions, women in history, reducing violence against women, as well as childhood and adult sexual harassment problems being exposed in society. "With blonde hair and a name like Snortland, you've got to figure I'm going to know something about harassment," says Snortland, who accomplishes as much as she can with her causes using humor. Ms. Snortland particularly advocates nipping sexual harassment in the bud where it actually starts, in the home and on the playground, by empowering girls and women to speak up.

Tonight's SPECIAL GUEST is Mike Domitrz, founder and Executive Director of the The Date Safe Project. Over the past decade, more attention is being given to dangerous sexual behavior among our youth and to the crime of sexual assault – mainly due to cases and news stories concerning celebrities, middle schools, high schools, college campuses, and the military. Unfortunately, the public debates arising from such prominent cases often lead to even greater misunderstandings of what consent means; how to teach safer understandings of intimacy to teenagers and young adults; how sexual assault is defined; and how to honor survivors of sexual assault / rape. To help clear-up the various misconceptions about healthy dating, intimacy, consent, sex, respect, sexual assault, and honoring survivors, Mike Domitrz, personally prompted by the rape of his sister, founded The Date Safe Project, Inc. which provides parents, educators, educational institutions, students, military installations, community organizations, state agencies, faith-based institutions, and federal government resources, educational materials, and programming addressing consent, healthy intimacy, sexual education, sexual assault awareness, bystander intervention, and support for sexual assault survivors.

Almost half are under age one. Ms Day says, "All it takes is a minute of your time to click here and sign the petition asking your member of congress to support this act, then send a letter to your Congressmembers." Much more must be done. The rate of child abuse fatalities continues to rise. An overhaul of the nation's child protection system is long overdue.

Community
Matters

LACP.org's
radio talk show
all about: "Community Matters" - the radio show
with host Bill Murray, LA Community Policing founder (LACP.org)

Community based policing provides a forum for the dissemination of information, sharing of ideas and suggesting of ways Americans can become engaged in making our streets safer, & improve the quality of life.

"Community Matters" has two meanings. We'll discuss issues that concern the community, including local and current event topics, and encourage our participants and listeners to understand the important role volunteers and activists play. We all can make a difference on our block, in our neighborhood, in the towns and cities where we live, in our states, in our country and, finally, in today's world-wide "global village," on the lives of those around us, near and far.

The host of "Community Matters" is Bill Murray, founder of Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP.org), which began as his reaction to 9-11 and has since become the world's biggest grassroots effort devoted to community based policing. The web site features some 2500 archived pages of articles and information and has been continuously published since early 2002.

"I have long felt that America has an untapped inner resource, her people," says Bill, "whose contributions could be enormous if moderately supported. The universe responds when folks serve their communities, taking social service positions within them. All participation is important, and WHAT one does matters less than the fact that everyone can, and should, do SOMEthing."

"Community-based policing (policing with a small "p") means leaving something in better shape than you find it," Bill continues. "It's not just about public safety, although crime and it's prevention is certainly a prominent issue for LACP. But it also speaks to the many ways a community can become involved in watching over each other, participating in self governance, lending a hand in neighborhood projects and improving the quality of life."

We're hoping you'll join us regularly for lively discussions and topics that matter .. to you and to your community.
