    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1150

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Laurie Purcell from Bay Shore, New York. Her abuse was physical, sexual, and emotional. The neglect she experienced is a large part of the reason she's lived most of her life in full leg braces .. from being thrown out a second story window when she was 4 yrs old. She says, "From the abuse I died 3 times. Heaven is wonderful, but God wasn't ready for me. The second trip took me 4 years to recover from. I have anoxia, brain damage due to lack of oxygen. That effects my memory. I got to the point of realizing I couldn't recover relearn everything." But Laurie's resilient, if nothing else. "I was with the Guardians Of the Children for 4 years, until they shut our chapter down. Crushed, but that didn't stop me from spreading awareness of child abuse through my story." She goes on, "I am passionate about this cause," adding, "In my photos on Facebook you will find picture after picture of the extent I go to for the kids." In addition there are 4 or 5 videos on her timeline. "If you watch one, or all of them, you will find out who I am," she points out. "I'm a warrior who will fight this battle to the end for the kids of today. My message: You can survive...and those of us who did owe it to our kids to save them from what we went through."

    Tonight's special guest is Donna (Dee) Wood from West Virginia, a verbal abuse survivor (as both a child and adult) who says she would be honored to tell her story in the hope she could help others. The devastating effects of the abuse lasted for over forty years, through most of her life. The trauma she endured through her mother’s husband brought a partial amnesia. She writes, "I lived on a small farm in a remote part of southern West Virginia. I was a very introverted child, extremely fearful of strangers." Her mother's husband, who she and her brother always called by his first name, Quentin (never Daddy or Dad), had an intense dislike of people. She goes on, "He never talked to us, unless it was to criticize, intimidate or inflict some form of verbal abuse." He sometimes administered severe belt beatings, beyond the necessary punishable offence, if it indeed was an offense. Her childhood trauma led to a difficult life. But Dee's on a better path now. "If I had known that the problems in my life were due to a term referred to as child abuse earlier in my life," she says, "and if I'd received the appropriate counseling and therapy, then my life would have been much easier and better. Yet, I believe if I had not gone through the trauma of those years I would not be the person I am today." Now she's a person who is more accepting, compassionate and understanding of others who have suffered and still suffer from different types of abuse. "I thank the Lord Almighty for answering my prayers to be whole," Dee writes. "I am still recovering, but I feel a lot more whole today."

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will join Bill Murray to lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. The institution commonly known as "Child Protective Services" has operated in an almost untouchable position in North America for decades, as if it was "above the law". To speak out against CPS was to risk losing your children, your family, your career, and in some cases your freedom, as retaliation was quick and vicious. Thankfully, there has been a recent turn in public opinion due to media exposure, precedent-setting lawsuits, ground breaking documentaries and people refusing to be silenced. Slowly, the Courts are starting to hold CPS agencies responsible for their illegal actions and abuses." We'll speak to the producer and director of 'Hope Stripped Bare', Tom Sutherland and cameraman Linley Redford, whose documentary is about the CPS system in North America. We will also be speaking with attorney and advocate Nanine McCool, executive director of Bridge to Justice Foundation, who fought to expose injustice in Family Court. We'll also have a former CPS worker who is willing to speak out about just how deep and how prevalent the corruption of these agencies is. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/ForOurKids or write to: naasca.forourkids@gmail.com
