On May 8, 2010, I originally interviewed Laurie Allen. Please join us as we relive that show.
"Unbelievable turn of circumstances is a great way to describe Laurie who will be talking to us today. I have been enjoying getting to know Laurie and learning more about what she is doing today with her role at Private Quarters (an organization supporting domestic violence survivors) and part of a documentary in progress called BY A THREAD, as well as her personal experiences involved in domestic violence and why she has been so adamant to advocate for change. She states that she is on a mission to share her story as how she became safe in her own skin, as well as just her story of domestic violence on a whole. There is a certainly level of abuse and violence that women hear about on the news, in the obituaries, the obvious and repeated, daily and nightly abuse; however, there is another level of abuse that is hidden, forgotten about and not on the radar because it may not be thought of as "that bad". At what point does it have to be "bad" to do something about it, after all? What about those less than obvious signs that lead you down a path of abuse and violence that young and mature women don't understand and don't know to look for? Those are the masses we need to reach and educate, speak to and empower!" http://www.blogtalkradio.com/oralhistory/2010/05/08/beyond-words-live--meet-laurie

We want to welcome you to our show this week. In looking at life we have all heard the question, why am I here. Ask yourself this question right now. No really! Ask yourself, why am I here! Do yourself a favor. Get a pen and paper and write this question down. Then write down, why you think you are here. Do you think you are a mistake? Do you think it is just by chance? If you are a listener of our show, I pray that you have many ideas on why you are here. Wild Bill was listening to the news, thinking about current events, and life experience. He has noticed that when it rains that it rains on everybody in that area that doesn't have enough sense to get in out of the rain. When it is cold outside there is no special warm air flow for those that didn't wear enough clothes when they left their home. When he looked at the obituaries in the paper, he noticed that age is not a protection for your name not to be there. It doesn't matter how much money you have, and/or what race you are. He also noticed that there was no seperation for people of faith vs those that are non-belivers. This is all a little dark and deep. So, we are going to share with you a new music release that speaks volumes about why we are all here. It will put a smile on your face! Tonight we are also going to look life from diferent angles. Have you noticed when you start to look at your life why you imediatly start to judge others? Is it fair to hold past mistakes against people? I can tell you that Wild Bill is a better man today then he was 20 years ago. Of course he is a slow learner. We will also have Blog talk mom on the show tonight if she can get her smart phone to work! With that said lets see what Wild Bill has for us tonight!

Tonights Broadcast is Dedicated in Loving Memory of : Marine Cpl. Conner Lowry of Chicago, Illinois. http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/chicagotribune/obituary.aspx?pid=156343385 If you have followed Barack Hussein Obama’s meteoric rise to power, you’ve noticed that anyone asking questions about his background typically finds him or herself on the receiving end of the Alinsky Attack Machine. Any criticism of Obama is called RAAACIST! Anyone who inquires about the many mysteries surrounding his “missing years” or his activities while in college and in his early days in Chicago is called every name in the book in the efforts to discredit that questioner. Why is that? What’s Barack Obama hiding…and what is the Left going to such lengths to keep hidden? Could it all boil down to something as simple as Barack Obama being gay? Is THAT what all the enigma, subterfuge, and Alinsky Goon Squad assaults are all really about? Is Barack Obama our first down-low, closeted gay President and is Michelle Antoinette Obama our first fully-complicit “beard” of a First Lady? As the agenda-driven media is always so quick to say when a conservative is accused of anything: you be the judge.
