Every year there are players who get the snub from the NFL Combine. The Liberty defensive back Walt Aikens is still waiting for the invitation. Aikens is a rare sized defensive back with plenty of raw ability. Standing at six feet and a little over 200 pounds (205), Aikens looks the part of an NFL corner. "I like him," Gus Bradley said. "I like big Walt. I think it's his spirit. We talked earlier what we are looking for, and I think he had tremendous spirit for the game. We talked about some of the techniques he needs to work on, but his overall spirit is what really jumped out." Aikens is like a gem that needs to be polished. He played in the Medal of Honor Bowl prior to his invite to the Senior Bowl. Now the question remains will he get the ultimate invite and head to Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine. "I work as hard as any of the guys out there if not more," Aikens said in Mobile, Alabama after a team meeting. "Felt like I had something to prove down here and felt like I proved it. Feel like if I get that combine invite I'll have more to prove." Aikens impressed all week in Mobile at practices. "Stay in your zone Walt," yelled one of the Jacksonville Jaguars coaches. "Don't get out of whack stay on top." He is still a little raw around the edges but you can't coach guys into being his size and the technique of the position can be harnessed in. "I'll show up to perform," Aikens said confidently. "I'm not going to back down."

Tonight's special guest is Mark Riser from Vancouver, BC, Canada of Made to Soar. As we meet Mark, he's already completed the very first leg of a cross-country motorcycle journey, a tour during which he plans to meet other childhood sexual abuse survivors. He wants to help other survivors live their dreams, and to move from fear, shame and hiding to the life they're truly capable of. As he says, "I want to help you rise again." Wherever he goes he plans to ask, "What has childhood sexual abuse cost you and your family? What do you dream of doing? How can I help you live your dreams?" And then he'll do his best to help survivors go on the adventure of living their dreams. Mark says, "Along the way, I hope to help some of my fellow survivors tell your stories (with your informed consent), to produce an amazing video series, and to raise awareness of both the enormous cost of childhood sexual abuse and the potential all of us have to rise triumphantly out of our difficult past." Mark explains, "When I confronted my parents about their abuse of me, my world was turned upside down. It was a heavy conversation, full of denial and shame. My dad said “you must be mistaken”. My mom turned around and called me a pedophile, and started blaming gays and the fact that I'm gay." After years of intense therapy of various types, Mark has a new dream, to help other survivors live their dreams. "To give hope and purpose to the pain, to go and live the life we are capable of," he says, "even with the challenges we’ve faced."

Tonight's special guest is César M, a 41 year-old survivor of sexual abuse originally from Central America who's now living in California. César was sexually abused as a child by a family member, and then in his teenage years by Catholic priests. His abuse lasted from his early childhood until his late teens, and once the years of assault were over he succumbed to alcohol addiction as a way to dealing with the repercussions. In his mid thirties he decided to seek help, and started a long journey of psychotherapy and self help, networking with other survivors, etc. Male Survivor is among the important groups with which he's affiliated. SNAP, The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, was another. César writes, "Now as a survivor I want to start living a meaningful, purposeful life. Thus I've decided to start working on fulfilling a life-long dream of becoming a photographer. This new journey is about to take place come the New Year with the help of my friend Mark Riser (also a NAASCA famuily member)." Mark and César met a few years ago at a retreat for male survivors of sexual abuse and have kept in touch ever since as a form of having a support network. Their bond as survivors has become very strong. Now César will be along to record Mark's "Made to Soar" road trip, a cross-country motorcycle tour to meet other childhood sexual abuse survivors. César says, "This will be a new chapter in my life as I thrive to transition from victim hood to survivor ship. I want to be someone that tells the world that sexual abuse is not a myth, but a reality and that silence can kill."
