The host of Monday to Friday's "Stop Child Abuse Now" (SCAN) and Sunday's "Community Matters" This Week, is Bill Murray, the nationally respected public safety and child abuse prevention, intervention and recovery advocate. Bill is founder and CEO of the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA), a 501(c)3. Originally he was best known for Los Angeles Community Policing (LACP), his reaction to the events of 9-11-2001. Bill's web site (LACP.org) has been continuously published since early 2002, and is the world's largest grassroots nonprofit effort devoted to community-based policing. In 2009, Bill launched the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA.org) as a grassroots effort, one based on his personal life experienced. "Very few adults escape years of severe childhood sexual abuse, pre-pubescent X-rated photography, sex trafficking, and a two week long kidnapping," Bill writes. "But I have, and for over 30 years I've been in recovery from its devastating effects. Once my parents were gone, I decided to devote my remaining time, money and available energy to this vitally important cause." After years of operating as a grassroots, all volunteer effort, and with over 1600 BlogTalkRadio shows in the ever-growing library, NAASCA became a public charity .. a 501(c)3 .. where the single purpose is to address issues related to childhood abuse and trauma including sexual assault, violent or physical abuse, emotional traumas and neglect from two specific perspectives: 1) educating the public, and 2) offering hope for healing and services to adult survivors. Join host Bill Murray six-nights-a-week (all but Saturday), at 8pm EST (7pm CEN, 6pm MTN, 5pm PAC) for solution oriented discussions about the many issues of child abuse and trauma. These shows always include panel discussions, LIVE chat rooms, and frequent call-in participation.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Tonight's special guest is Mark Morrison-LeMay from Baldwinsville, New York, who was physically and mentally abused by his stepfather. So was his mother. "I don't really remember when the abuse actually started, but it evolved to me being told I was nothing," Mark says, "that I would amount to nothing, that I would end up as my biological father did, making nothing of my life." He was helpless as he regularly witnessed his mother being slapped and demeaned. Mark, a chunky kid and not an athlete, was also bullied at school. "At 16 years of age, I seriously contemplated taking my own life, telling my mother that maybe if I was not around the abuse she was experiencing would stop," he writes. "I developed what ended up being daily panic attacks, and had at least 3 breakdowns that I can remember. The after effects of the abuse were basically a deep mistrust of people, becoming pretty much a loner and erecting many walls to keep any form of hurt away." Three years ago Mark had a heart attack. "That was the turning point, as I was diagnosed with both anxiety and depression." He began counseling.He concludes, "At 52 years old, my life is just beginning to go the way I want it to go." Mark's making a difference and is now telling his story. "I am hoping this will inspire those who are in the midst of fighting the demon of abuse to know they too can crawl out from under that weight and can becoming whole and strong enough to become who they are meant to be." He's now involving himself in what his passions (including photography). "I still have flashbacks to the abuse and still have an occasional panic attack [but] these are few and far between."
