January Jones - Loss of A Child
Donna Mebane grew up wanting to be two things: a mother and a writer. She first became a mom and then a writer after the death of her youngest child, Emma.
While Donna has had numerous writing experiences over the years, she became a published author after she wrote Tomorrow Comes as a way of envisioning a future for her 19-year-old daughter who went to sleep one night and never woke up.
She calls Tomorrow Comes a work of “reality fiction” because it captures the reality of grief that family and friends endured after Emma died at the same time that it creates an enchanting fictional world of AFTER.

When Sukey Forbes' daughter was just 6 years old she died from a rare genetic disorder. Life as Sukey knew it was shattered. Every trauma survivor remembers the moment life changed and carries the effects forever. But that doesn't mean that life has to lose all of its luster forever. As Forbes shows in her moving memoir THE ANGEL IN MY POCKET there are ways to manage the loss and bridge the gap that's left behind. Forbes joins us to discuss her book, her healing process and how she makes a meaningful life after trauma.

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."

On July 13, a young 28-year old woman was found hanging from a noose made from a plastic bag (allegedly) in her cell at the Waller County Jail in Texas, where she was incarcerated after allegedly assaulting an officer during a July 10 traffic stop. Her death is being investigated as a murder, though authorities have said that she appeared to have hanged herself.
Who was this young woman, who was like so many young adults who have spoken openly of racial and police injustices? … Her name is Sandra Bland.
Here we find ourselves again, addressing the loss of a life of another young black person under suspicious circumstances while in the custody of law enforcement, and Hot Topics Talk Radio will be addressing the inconsistencies in the accounts of the death of Sandra Bland.
Join us on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 8:00pm PST/11:00pm EST.
