Devoted and Dedicated to Making a difference to the lives of victims of all abuse is my sole aim & ambition in life.I will not Stay Quiet or be Intimidated,or Bullied. As a former victim & now an Advocate of Domestic, Physical, Sexual Abuse,I know only too well the pain & hurt that abuse causes,& if I can help one person whether a Man, Woman or Child to escape that life, then that is what I will do. Domestic Abuse & Child Abuse is directly connected to Human Trafficking & it is such a huge part of life today,& yet so many remain ignorant to the real facts about it. So many young children that are victims of some form of Child Abuse,simply run away in order to escape their pain & trauma,only to be targeted by these Predators the Traffickers.This infuriates me as most of these children could be saved,could be helped & supported if more people cared.I am extremely vocal on Human Trafficking as with the USA now tied in First Place with Mexico for Child Abuse & Trafficking, we need to do something & Fast.To have a country like the US voted the worst out of the top 29 most Industrialized Countries in the World for Child Abuse,Child Deaths & Trafficking to me,simply show's that action needs to be taken now. I am determined to make change happen,I have been told by a very well respected Advocate for Human Trafficking & Abuse Advocate that I have the Heart & Determination of a Lion & am Fearless.Having lived a life of abuse,for far too many years in secret I am no longer afraid of anybody.Published Author with my own Autobiography Survivors Not Statistics, My own life story of my life of abuse, and how it made me a victim for so many years, then been saved by the people of Alaska, and becoming a Survivor and then the Advocate that I am today.
DO RELIGIONS HELP OR HINDER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE VICTIMS?
Popular televangelist Pat Robertson recently advised a child who wrote in asking what to do when his father waves a gun around the mother when they fight. With all apparent concern and sincerity, the TV preacher told the child, “you don’t want to get your father busted,” and that instead of calling the police, the child should tell his mother to tell the father to get help. Huh?? This man clearly has no business giving out advice about domestic violence when he so clearly has no grasp of what it is nor how to handle it. Unfortunately, the young listener isn’t the only one who is getting dicey and dangerous advice about DV.
So is Robertson typical of the religious stance on domestic violence? Are women being given advice by their clergy that is wrong, harmful, lacking in understanding of what DV is? Unfortunately, some women are. The good news is that some clergy have the knowledge, understanding and common sense to really help in these situations.

All across the country law enforcement agencies are called during hostage situations, whether hostages being held for demands, political purposes, or more commonly relationship disputes. None of the described situations tend to end well. Either the perpetrators or the hostages are harmed, physically, mentally and emotionally.
But what about the ripple effect these situations have on not only the immediate victims and family, but the law enforcement and other personal, as well as those who put endless hours negotiating for a safe resolution?
Shattered Lives Radio welcomes hostage negotiators, Derek Gaunt and Sandy Hein.
They will talk about a real life case from Alexandria, Virginia, the set up of the circumstances, how terms were negotiated, and the outcome. Listeners will be taken inside to what goes on during a hostage situation and how if affects so many.
Children adopted from foster care or from an orphanage abroad have likely experienced some level of trauma from abuse, neglect, or malnutrition. What can adoptive parents do to help?

Dr. Perry has been consulted on how to help children involved with the following high profile incidents involving traumatized children such as the Branch Davidian siege in Waco (1993), the Oklahoma City bombing (1995), the Columbine school shootings (1999), the September 11th terrorist attacks (2001), Hurricane Katrina (2005), the FLDS polygamist sect (2008), the earthquake in Haiti (2010), the tsunami in Tohoku Japan (2011) and the Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings (2012).

We all want this epedimic of Domestic violence to end! The reality is how can we help it end if were not facing the pink elephant in the room! We all focus on the abused so much we fail to realize this all starts with the abuser. There the person that caused the issues.So we need to get to the bottom of were there anger or issues are/were stemming from. Maybe they witness it? Maybe them there selves were abused? Bottom line is it needs to be addressed because healing only the abused is only half the problem. At the end of the day .Have you ever heard that saying hurt people hurt other people. That's real! The root of the problem is to get into the head heart and mind of the abuser. If not the cycle will continue! Let's talk!
