Tonight's special guest is Dr John A King from Grapevine, Texas, who says, "I was abused as a boy by my parents and their friends. I write, speak and am involved in rescuing children who have been trafficked." And he goes on, "There are very few men prepared to discuss the impact of sexual abuse on their lives." John speaks from personal experience. At 45, his life imploded when he had total recall of the sexual abuse he suffered from age 4-17 by both his parents and their friends. To process the memories, he began to write poetry. He published this art / therapy, No Working Title: A Life in Progress, anonymously in 2013 as an e-book, and in hardcover in 2015. Since then, he has worked to establish the Give Them a Voice Foundation for advocacy, resourcing, and rescuing victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking. The web site notes that a child rape  occurs every 2 minutes in the United States. It says as many as 15,000 to 17,500 men, women and children are trafficked into The United States every year and that in New York in the last decade, 50% of the children trafficked for sex were BOYS.  He's also involved in the making of the documentary, Stopping Traffic: The Film. We'll be touching on all theses topics on tonight's show.
