Bill Murray is the Founder of NAASCA (National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse). NOTE from Bill -- I'm hoping that after my more than 25 years of sobriety and recovery from all the issues initiated by my severe abuse as a child our new www.NAASCA.org non profit can resonate with hope for those who have found it difficult to share their abuse stories. I especially encourage sharing in appropriate groups. This is the beginning of recovery. Secondly I'm hoping our new effort can help bring attention to a growing problem the scope of which few understand. Its simply unacceptable that hundreds of thousands of young Americans fall victim to pedophiles, molesters, kidnappers, child ographers and traffickers each year.
"I want to take the worst thing that happened to me and turn it into the best thing I have to offer to the community," he said.
Murray, who grew up in New York, was sexually abused when he was 11 years old during summer camp; the abuse continued for three summers.
The organization will be aimed at helping child abuse victims cope with their trauma by providing resources and a safe space to talk about their experiences, said Murray, who was a victim of child abuse.
"I've gone through the recovery, and I'm healthy enough to be a spokesperson," the recovering drug and alcohol addict said. "I want to devote my life now to help other people who had the same experiences and have not talked about it, especially men."
Murray said he plans to use the Community Matters podcast to encourage victims, who can remain anonymous, to share their stories. He'll also focus on the issues of sex crimes, sex trafficking and child ography.
The Ferguson issue continues.
Earlier this week Agitator-Renown, Al Sharpton, called on Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush and other potential 2016 presidential candidates, to weigh in on the situation in Ferguson, Missouri. .
After initially maintaining silence, Hillary Clinton made following statement.
Said Hillary, Watching the recent funeral for Michael Brown, as a mother, as a human being, my heart just broke for his family. Because losing a child is every parent’s greatest fear and an unimaginable loss,” she said at the beginning of her paid remarks to the Nexenta OpenSDx Summit. “But I also grieve for that community and for many like it across our country.
But perhaps, her more pointed and reflecting comments, took white people to task, on how black people in many instances, feel, in the perception that the police tend to target us in either an excessive or harsher manner, than they do, whites, asking her [mainly white?] audience to think about how they would feel if white drivers were stopped as often black drivers, or given as long prison sentences as African-Americans.
While on the surface, such words seem to connect with and sympathize with the plight of black people, we should recognize that mere words alone, have not and will not address the realities of black life, to the extent that many of us find ourselves on “the other side” of the law and society.
Anyway, why is it so important that personalities make public, perhaps uninformed statements, just to prove a point?
So, yes, I imply that Hillary Clinton was forced, pressured to patronize.
Also, Barack Obama plans in the near future to address the “broken” illegal immigration system; strange choice of words for a man who helped turned a fracture into a fissure.

DEREK PARRA, Olympian speed skater, Gold and Silver Medalist, 2002 Salt Lake City
In 1984, Derek began roller skating and by 1996 he had become the most decorated athlete in the history of the sport. As an inliner he was a three-time national champion, two-time overall World Champion, two-time World record holder (1500m and 42K) and earned eighteen individual gold medals. He was the most decorated athlete at 1995 Pan-Am Games winning 5 gold, 2 silver and a bronze medal. He had everything but an Olympic Medal. So in 1996, he switched from inlines to ice skates to chase after that medal. Just two years later he earned a spot on the 1998 US Olympic Team.
In February of 2001 he won a silver medal at the World Single Distance Championships (1500 meters) setting a new American Record and marking himself as "one to watch at the 2002 Olympic Games". Later that year, in November, he won a gold medal at the World Cup competition in Den Hague, Netherlands and became one of America's foremost medal contenders heading into the Olympics. In Salt Lake City he did not disappoint! After being selected to carry the World Trade Center flag into the opening ceremonies, the emotional evening inspired Derek through a remarkable 5000 meter performance on opening day of the Games. He briefly held the world record en route to a silver medal finish. That set the stage for a stunning world record finish and Olympic Gold Medal in the 1500 meter event!
Derek is also the first-ever Mexican American to compete in, and medal, in the Olympic Winter Games.
World Footprints returned to New Orleans for our 7th annual French Quarter Festival 2-hour broadcast. This year we set up at Tableau Restaurant, Dickie Brennan's newest culinary gem in Jackson Square. This second hour of our FQF broadcast explores the unique history of New Orleans with two prominent professors from the University of New Orleans.
The diverse heritages of the people of New Orleans makes this city very unique, interesting and alive with traditions that are not found in any other city in the country. New Orleans is a place where Africans intermingled with Native Americans and european settlers ultimately creating a sustainable culture that distinguishes New Orleans today. Dr. MaryMiitchell, History Professor at UNO, joins us to discuss the African contributions to New Orleans and the dynamics that slavery played in the development and culture of this city.
Most people don’t equate compassion and beauty when they think of Voodoo, but Voodoo historian, Professor Martha Ward, says that is what she discovered when she first began researching the practice. Prof. Ward is a Professor Emeritus at UNO and author of the book, Voodoo Queen: The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau, the only academic account of the famous New Orelans voodoo priestess and her daughter, Marie Laveau II. Professor Ward offers a Voodoo history lesson and her belief that Hollywood and media have incorrectly racialized and stigmatized Voodoo.
Enjoy our FQF hour one discussion of New Orleans art and history.
Guest: Nilda Cepero, artist, author & poet.

CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
On August 28, 1963, hundreds of thousands descended upon our nation’s capital to make a stand against poverty and racial discrimination. The “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom” went down in history as one of the most pivotal points of change in our country’s history. One of the most notable highlights of the march was a speech delivered by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., which later became known as the “I Have a Dream” speech. In it, Dr. King cast a spot light on the social, racial and financial injustices that had plagued “the negro” since they had been “made free” exactly 100 years ago, to the day, by the Emancipation Proclamation. This past August 28 marked the 50 anniversary of that historic day and King’s historic speech. A day that is credited with being one of the most significant events that brought about The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act in 1965. But today, 50+ years later, has the dream that so many marched, bled and died for come to fruition? Is the so-called “negro” really free? Have things changed for the better or have we squandered the inheritance of our elders and given ourselves over to a new slave master, sin? Join us, as we search the Holy Bible to interpret Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream

EVANGEL PACIFIC RADIO PRESENTS...This Special Broadcast.
Pastor Will Griffith is joined by R&B Legend and contemporary peacemaker Timmy Thomas, along with his management team, Steve Tucker and Frank Levy. This is an EPR Exclusive interview on the eve of the launch of Thomas' WE CAN LIVE TOGETHER World Peace Campaign.
In 1972, Timmy Thomas was watching the evening news hosted by Walter Cronkite. Mr. Cronkite was reporting on the Vietnam war, and the thousands of American and Viet Cong soldiers that had died in battle. Timmy thought "Why Can't We Live Together". This thought became a song that was embraced by millions.
The song was initially banned in South Africa during Apartheid, yet it became their national anthem at Nelson Mandela's inauguration, where Timmy performed live in front of 200,000 people.
Timmy has had other hits world wide, as well as having his songs placed in movies such as Boys Don't Cry, C.R.A.Z.Y., Dick, Radio, and Bachelor Party. Over 100 artists including Sade, Steve Winwood, Santana, and Joan Osborne have covered "Why Can't We Live Together".
Timmy has always lived his life for peace and love, from marching peacefully with Dr. Martin Luther King, to traveling to Haiti as an airline ambassador setting up safe houses for children that have been human trafficking victims.
Innocent children are being killed by war, in the streets, and in our schools. Peace is needed now more than ever! So, he is reaching out to renowned artists in the epic remake "Why Can't We Live Together",
