Tonight's special guest is Heidi Carlisle from Naples, Florida, a child abuse survivor, activist and author. She's a survivor of being kidnapped and attempted sexual assault as a young teenager. Years later, she was given a date rape drug the same week of her 18th birthday and gang raped. In addition she was brutally attacked, almost murdered, and raped by a psychopath who was sentenced to 40 years for that in Texas. Heidi says, "As a victim of sexual assault on more than one occasion and after years of dealing with the victimizations of society, law enforcement, and the criminal justice system, I found positive ways to survive." Heidi has experience working in a child day care and early childhood setting with abused, neglected, and foster children, too, and is the author of the 'Sexual Assault Watchdog: Survivor's Guide' where you'll find wonderful resources for free assistance and survivor advocacy, as well as guidance regarding society, the criminal justice system, safety, your happiness, and more. Heidi says, "I had a horrendous experience in New Hampshire and with Texas' ill attitude towards victims reporting rape to law enforcement and its criminal justice system. I've decided to actively speak up even more for survivors. I have learned a lot about 'the system', the rape culture, etc. through my experiences." Heidi fought for her rights as a victim in the Supreme Court of New Hampshire and won. Of her soon to be published book, 'Sexual Assault Watchdog: Survivor's Guide', she notes, "You will receive the benefit of my experiences and wonderful resources to lead you to a much better life. It my is honor to help you!"
