Can you believe that - PTS from Childhood Sexual Abuse; Osteoarthritis; Peripheral Neuropathy; and Degenerative Disc Disease are all living inside of one person? It's not too hard to picture one person having all those, but what is a bit off the beaten path is that they all are within one man....yes one man!
That man is Brian Passe. Brian recently created a website called "HisWords.org - Through God's Grace I live Strong" which focuses on chronic pain with an emphasis on men. In his researching of chronic pain he took notice that most stories he came across where about women with fibromyalgia. That got Brian thinking, and he realized it was because men usually try to "tough it out" or just not talk about their pain. They tend to think that no one notices when they're in pain, but those closest to them, especially their wives, know exactly how they feel.

Within the last 18 months there have been dozens of stories in the news detailing sexual assaults on Black youths, both male and female. Most of the accused perpetrators have been trusted and influential members of the community - people no one would suspect of being a pedophile. Statistics on the sexual assaults of children under the age of 18 are shocking and deeply disturbing.
Trafficking, molestation, rape, and prostitution have become commonplace. The majority of these crimes by Black men against Black children being tolerated and seemingly accepted in our communities. Why? What 's going on with Black men? Why are these beasts not being arrested and prosecuted en masse? Why the silence by women and lack of action by allegedly "good black men?"
Guest experts include Dr. Joyce Morley-Ball of doctorjoyce.com, and Sylvia Coleman of blacksurvivors.org. Sylvia stated: "What concerns me most are the adult sexual abuse survivors who fail to recognize the connection between the current problems in their life (i.e. relationship, job failure, parenting, etc) and the sexual abuse they experienced in their childhood."
Our well-informed panel will provide you with answers to these questions and many more during this explosive broadcast. Take the Survey on Child Abuse in the Black Community by clicking here. To participate in the live on-air discussion, call 347-327-9215.
