Tonight's special guest is Reverend Larry Ross from Gerald, Missouri, Vice President of "Knights for the Innocent" and National Chaplain and the Founder of the "Pay it Forward" TV channel ministry on You Tube. Larry grew in a single parent home with a drunk abusive father and 2 little brothers after his mother took off. "Dad was always angry and drunk when not at work and would beat us at the drop of a hat," he says. "I remember him beating my Mom so bad that I grabbed his 22. cal revolver and made him stop." The years of sexual abuse he experienced came from a man his Dad and Mom knew. "They made us call him 'Uncle Don'." At around 13 he discovered the world of drugs and drinking. One evening his Dad started to beat on his littlest brother. "I just snapped, breaking his noise and eye socket and hitting him over and over until I thought he was dead. I jumped up and ran down to Dixie's apartment, who is now my wife." At this point they've been together 29 years. She had two young children who'd been sexually abused by her ex-husband. "I know God put me in their house to be their protector," Larry says. It took a while but he got himself on a better path. "I didn't even really look for God," says Larry, "he found me after I spent my life doing drugs drinking and selling weed." Tragedy in his family didn't stop him. "It's all cogs on a wheel that God has planned for my life because now I get the honor of standing up for those too afraid to reach out and ask for help themselves."
