Tonight's special guest is Deloris E. Jordan from Philadelphia, older sister of NBA superstar Michael Jordan, abuse survivor, author of "In My Family's Shadow" and founder of the non profit "Lets Start A Conversation." 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."
