Tonight's special guest is Bill Murray from Los Angeles, California, a childhood sexual abuse survivor and NAASCA's founder. He first spoke on the radio on SCAN Episode 63 in 2009. By then he was nearly 25 years in recovery, and had told his story many many times, one-on-one, in small groups and even at a few conventions. A bit later he launched the NAASCA.org web site and organization, which recently became a non-profit charity. Bill was sexually abused from age 11 until about half way through his high school experience at a minor seminary. He was also the victim of thousands of x-rated pre-pubescent pictures, kidnapped for two weeks and offered to others, trafficked. Most of his predators, all men, were priests and brothers in the Catholic Church. Bill had a confusing, painful adolescence and early adulthood where he kept his secret, drinking and drugging in shame. He had numerous inappropriate sexual relationships with as many women as he could. At 30 years old, Bill sobered up and began to apply the same principals he was learning in a 12 Step program to the suffering he'd experienced in his youth. Now there are a number of NAASCA 'family members' who are trained to host the 6-night-a-week "Stop Child Abuse Now" talk radio shows. After hosting some 2200 episodes himself, Bill remains NAASCA's principal spokesperson and devotes his time to writing and appearing as often as he can to educate the public and offer hope to the still-suffering adult survivor of child abuse and trauma.
