Tonight's special guest is Johnny Rock from New Orleans, Louisiana, a child abuse survivor and an activist. An actor professionally, Johnny is an advocate and public speaker for both children and adult survivors of childhood abuse. He's excited to be a NAASCA family member. "The timing is perfect," he says. "I'm also interested in holding Recovery Group meetings in the New Orleans area ASAP. I've already downloaded all of the materials, set up an e-mail address and am scouting for a location." He explains, "I am an adult survivor of numerous forms of childhood abuse." Johnny goes on, "I am currently producing a documentary called Victim to Victor - Surviving Child Abuse and have just begun working on a book with the same title. I look forward to standing side by side with each and every one of you." Johnny speaks from experience, "The first memory I have of my mother is a vivid nightmarish image that plays in the theater of my mind like it was yesterday. I must have been maybe in 1st or 2nd grade. She was chasing me down the hallway with a butcher knife screaming the words “I'll kill you, you son of a bitch”. He goes on, "She would call me a sissy and forcefully put my sisters dress on me and push me out of the front door for the neighbors at the school bus stop to see. I wanted to die." Johnny understands NAASCA's mission. "Anything that harms children has a trickle down effect for generations." He concludes, "Abused children are at far higher risks level for suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, or victims of further sexual exploitation, or crimes. We as a society need to help survivors in every way possible."
