    Teen Dating Violence statistics are alarming

    in Current Events

    The words domestic violence are usually assoiciated with an adult woman being abused by an adult male.  One in four women will be affected by some form of domestic violence, in their lifetime. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. http://www.ncadv.org/need-support/what-is-domestic-violence.

    With awareness growing, studies have been geared to teen domestic violence.  The statistics are alarming.  http://www.loveisrespect.org/resources/dating-violence-statistics/  Over 1.5 million high school students will experience some form of physical abuse, this year.  43% of college dating women have reported some form of abuse.  These numbers only include the reported number of cases. Statistically, only 33% of those vicitims every told anyone about the abuse.  Parents that were surveyed don't believe that teen domestic violence is an issue (81%). The shocking part, only 58% of parents could identify the signs of an abusive relationship.

    Organizations can spread awareness, but education is needed for our teens.  As of July 2014, only 22 states had some form of legislation; in place, that addresses education for teen dating violence.  http://www.ncsl.org/research/health/teen-dating-violence.aspx

    Spreading awareness is a step in the right direction, but without educational programs we could see these statistics continue to grow.

You will learn the truth about: Sexual Polution/Defilement, Spirit Husbands and Spirit wives, Spiritual Transference, How to get free from Masturbation, How to Live Pure As a Single, Breaking Free From Ancestral Pollution and much more! In the Spiritual realm, there are gates or entrances to a person's life: spirit, soul and body, which the enemy strategically attacks. God has warned us to protect our gates--the entrance doors with righteousness, peace, and truth {Zecharias 8:16; Psalms 118:19}. Demons seek for entrances and after they have gained entrance into people's lives, they must: Seek for deliverance to be free, close all gates- shut every open door against the enemy. Sin opens the door of a person's life for demons to try to slip in, We are to be watchmen and door keepers of our lives, we must know and understand the Word, walk by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and obey the voice of the Lord God. We must be fully empowered: spiriually and physically to engage in a successful warfare and maintain our freedom from demonic powers!!! This teaching is truthfully empowering and passionately compelling!!

  • Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast

    in Politics

    Listen to this episode of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We will feature our regular PANW reports focusing on recent developments in Libya where a pro-Gaddafi demonstration was held in Benghazi, the birthplace of the imperialist-backed counter-revolution of 2011. This protest was broken up quickly by reactionaries. These events came in the aftermath of the release of a video showing the systematic torture of Saadi Gaddafi and the death sentences handed down to Seif al-Islam and other Jamahiriya loyalists. Also in the PANW reports include updates on the seizure of a hotel occupied by United Nations forces in Mali; the upcoming political struggle inside the US Congress over the ratification of the Iran nuclear deal; and the death of a Palestinian father whose child was killed by an Israeli settler several days ago. During the second and third hour we highlight the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act passed during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in 1965. We will hear the voices of people from Selma and others in regard to the history of the Act as well as the attacks that have devastated the original intent of the law.
