Tonight's special guest is Onyx King from Fort Worth, Texas, a survivor of horrible sexual, physical and emotional child abuse. Hers is a voice crying out for all the children who can't. "Before child sex trafficking became a popular cause," she says, "African American kids had been suffering for decades. My mother sold my body over and over." Onyx is right. The issue of the trafficking of children has become a topic that's discussed fairly openly in today's media and society. In fact NAASCA sees it as a back-door opportunity to present the much more taboo issues of child sexual abuse. Onyx's book, "The Girl That Glows: a story of a young girl who lost her shine," reveals that the abuse she suffers was almost unbearable, but the religious abuse she experienced was almost her undoing. Then the glow hidden in her heart begins to allow her to see who was there all the time, a child of God worthy of love. This is quite the story, and you'll not want to miss it! "My writing has taken me to a whole new level in my thinking," Onyx says. "I have not as of yet [fully] arrived, but I do believe it is coming!" During the day she's now working as a receptionist for Universal Health Services. "I love what I do, and no matter what happens in life I will forever remain connected with Universal in some way." A native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, Onyx possesses a BS in Social Work and is currently working on her Masters degree at The University of Phoenix.
