Tonight's special guest is Bo Budinsky, a returning NAASCA family member from Texas, who's a child abuse survivor and a tireless child protection and adult survivor advocate. In January 2013 he founded Save One Survivor, after a life of addiction, shattered relationships, abandoned careers and homeless. As a child he'd been repeatedly violated. Bo knew himself as a broken person, deeply troubled and hopelessly addicted. He spent years working on himself, grabbing onto anything available which he thought would be healing. In September, 2010, Bo was selected to appear on Oprah Winfrey's now-famous 200 Male Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse show. Bo shares, "I had an epiphany. It became clear what my struggle all these years had been about. It was about the business of preparing me to be in a place where I could be of service to others with the same plight." He continues, "Only this last three years have I "come out of hiding" so to speak. I have been ashamed of something and running my entire life. I never knew what it was. Now I know. I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and it has profoundly affected my life." Ever since the Oprah show, Mr Budinsky has been involved in numerous efforts involving Childhood Sexual Abuse awareness, prevention, intervention and recovery.
