SORT BY Relevancy
Speaking of the search for happiness....which I hope I am....there's the one sure killer that I assume we all fall victim to from time to time -- Worry. It's the killer of all things good and decent, and I'm far too familiar with it. In fact, right now, I'm worry about doing a show about worrying. Sick, right? Kids. Relationships. Love. Loss of Love. Divorce. The Boston Red Sox. Cockroaches. People who don't believe in climate change. People who do believe in open-mouthed sneezes in public. So much to fear, so little time. So let's talk about all our worries and how, well, to stop worrying about them!
Tonight join CWT4R co-host, Ina, Michelle and Terry and we discuss the STOP and FRISK Project in New York and the VIOLENCE IN CHICAGO. Today more children are being killed, African American and Latino youth are being hand cuffed and their life which is supposed to be just beginning comes to a complete stop. Parents are crying themselves to sleep either because their child is dead or their child is the reason another family will never get to hold theirs ever again. Are we putting our children in situations that mark them for either jail or the grave? Joining us as LeMagie Tapia a volunteer that works in this grassroots effort to educate our youth and keep them safe and alive. LeMagie will talk about how in the Bronx they are teaching young people about their rights when they are profiled, Stopped and Frisked by members of law enforcement. LeMaige is involved in the New York STOP and FRISK Project that guide youth by educating them on when they are stopped by the police to not make a bad situation worst then it has to become by knowing their rights. We will then focus on the center of attention by the media regarding violence, Chicago. Joining us tonight is Dawn Valenti, a Crisis Responder at Chicago’s Citizens for Change and Executive Director of United for a CAUSE. In 2008, United For A Cause (UFAC) was formed an organization aimed at helps women and children that have been victimized by violent crimes. Also welcome Stephanie Brown mother of Darius Brown a 13 year old shot & killed in 2011 while playing an innocent game of basketball on the south side of Chicago. Conversations and crying is being heard all over the country. Tonight a parent will be heard and now we need to LISTEN and people need to become INVOLVED.
For so long is has been silence. NOW, SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!
Explaining yourself hinders you from unleashing your potential and sets you on a road to seek approval from others. When you keep explaining yourself, you stop respecting and trusting yourself. Nontobeko “Nonto” Masilela and Heizal Njuguna will give us tips on how to stop explaining ourselves. Listen live: 619-393-2852 or http://pinnacleofpraiseshow.com/new/

Violence is a plague in our society and it comes in many forms--gang violence, domesic violence, and gun violence just to name a few. More and more children are being injured or killed at a higher rate than medical illnesses, and the African-American community has the highest occurences. WIth all of the anti-violence advocacy groups and anti-violence movements and laws in place, why are the fatalities rising to this issue? Join me tonight at 9:00 pm EST as Kaydee interviews Chris Curry, producer/artist and creator of the amazing "Stop The Violence Movement" video series. Chris discusses the plight of violence in our neighborhoods, and the sad reality of struggling to get more involvement from the people this affects the most. Tune in at 347-327-9967.

Tonight's special guest is Dr Patrick Gannon, a clinical psychologist in private practice in San Francisco. He has worked extensively with high risk children and adults who have been abused over the last thirty five years and lectures widely on a range of mental health issues. Dr Gannon says, "When I started working with child and adult survivors, I identified with many of their feelings although never to the extent that I felt traumatized by what I experienced in childhood. In a sense, I experienced just enough of the emotional abuse to want to do something about it." Based on his experiences in child abuse prevention, he wrote the book "Soul Survivors: A New Beginning For Adults Abused As Children" in 1989. In 1993, he became the Clinical Director of the Norma J. Morris Center for Healing From Child Abuse in San Francisco, where he was one of the founders of the Adult Survivors of Child Abuse self-help program (www.ASCAsupport.org). The 21 steps of recovery outlined in "Soul Survivors" provided the theoretical basis for the ASCA program of recovery. Dr Gannon co-authored the ASCA basic manual and guidebook, "Survivor to Thriver," which describes process of recommended tasks and issues that most adult survivors face during their recovery from child abuse. The second edition of "Soul Survivors" was published as an ebook only two months ago. The ebook contains significant revisions, additions, updated research as well as integrates the ASCA program into the three stage, 21 step program. The Morris Center is sharing in the profits from "Soul Survivors" set at a very low ebook price of $5.99 (Smashwords.com and Amazon.com) to make it affordable for survivors around the world.
This week, "On-Air" Stop The Hate, Stop The Violence. I think that this is a topic that we need to revisit at least one a year, because things are happening all over the world. In our own neighborhoods, towns, cities. Around the world, there is violence everywhere. Not just in certain cites, cities that people often inadvertantly cite as a "problem area". We'll talk about this and see if we can't bring out more awareness about this very disturbing problem in our society. This week. "On-Air".
C Fox reviews the movie "Non-Stop", an action/suspense flick starring Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore, Scott McNairy, Michelle Dockery, Nate Parker, Corey Stoll, Lupita Nyong 'o, Linus Roache, Anson Mount, and Shea Wigham. Directed by Jaune Collet-Serra. Synopsis: A burned out U.S. Air Marshall with a drinking problem on a transatlantic flight receives a text message demanding a payment of 150 million dollars or else people on the flight will die. Can he identify the terrorist in time and save the flight?
Whether you are a teacher, youth worker, parent, community educator, or activist, you have most likely been granted access to young people in an institution that itself reflects and may perpetuate certain forms of injustice. You may be charged with focusing on a particular area of youth behavior that adults have identified —or diagnosed—as a problem. Some of the most commonly identified problems include drug abuse, gangs, bullying, family violence, teen-dating violence and sexual assault, sexuality, media impact on youth, and the umbrella term “youth violence.” Any of these issues can serve as a lens to facilitate social-justice education. But if the focus is on fixing young people and returning them, thus fixed, to institutional environments that are oppressive to them without giving them the information and skills they need to work together to address that oppression, then the work would be better labeled “youth management” than “social justice.”

Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org

Tonight's special guest is Mandy Trouten from South Carolina, a returning NAACA family member, child abuse survivor and anti-violence and abuse activist who does peer counseling. Ms Trouten is also the author of two books. Her first was "Maybe Today" and the second one "Shadows of Night" was published since we last saw Mandy. "I write about sexual violence because I saw it first-hand'" she says. "I have relatives and friends who are victims. I've seen first-hand the damage it can do to a person’s life, as well as the ways in which our society still ignores and even condones it." When younger, she found an anti-abuse network on MySpace where the stories of other victims/survivors and the many pages of statistics about different kinds of abuse helped her find her mission in life. Mandy writes, "More than anything, I enjoy helping victims/survivors of abuse in their path to healing. I have always said I would undo the abuse and its effects in a heartbeat, but I am grateful for the opportunity God gave me to use my experience. I grew up hearing that there's a silver lining to every cloud and I used to think 'not this one.' In time, I realized 'not this one yet.'" She goes on to say, "If I had never had to experience the undeserved attentions of classmates, my life might have been normal. I might have gotten the career in architecture that I've always dreamed of, but I would not be a part of the fight against abuse because I would know nothing about it. That's my silver lining."
