    Former Middle School Gangster Graduates HS with a 3.9 GPA

    in Education

    Ray Acosta was only in the seventh grade when he joined a local gang. He did not want to continue his education. He was going to be the leader of his gang. 


    His parents tried to talk to him but he would not and didn't listen.
     
    Right before the end of school that year, he made up his mind and would join a gang doing drugs and everything he thought he was big enough to do.
     
    However one morning while sitting in class, he was summons to the principal's office. When he arrived there he was greeted by two policemen, and the principal.
     
    He said to himself, I haven't done anything. The policeman said to him we have a warrant for your arrest. You have the right to remain silent for what you say can be used against you. At that point, he was handcuffed and taken to jail.
     
    To Ray's surprise, it was his mother, Mrs. Rossy Acosta who had turned him in, and asked the police to arrest him.


    When Ray was released from his three week time in jail, he enrolled in Give West, an alternative school to get his life back on the right track.
     
    His academic career spiral to great heights. He will be graduating with a 3.9 GPA. The fact that he is now graduating and has accomplished some of his goals and dreams, he wanted to credit Principal Todd Marschke and everyone at Give West.


    Not only has Ray accomplished a 3.9 GPA, he has taken challenging courses that has earned him a scholarship offer from Georgia Tech.


    Call in Wed. night at 8:00 pm from any phone and simply call 1-646-478-0188, Blog Talk Radio. Please have some encouraging words of wisdom for Mr. Acosta.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1103

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Polly Moore from Atlanta, Georgia, a returning NAASCA family member. Polly is the Executive Administrative Assistant of Angela Williams, Founder of VOICE Today, a non-profit organization whose mission is to break the cycle and silence of child sexual abuse through awareness, prevention, and healing programs. She began volunteering with VOICE Today on July 17, 2012, the day after she broke her silence. She'd found her voice at VOICE Today's support group the night before. Polly grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years. She is contemplating returning to finish her final year at Western Carolina University where she majored in Accounting, and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse. Polly says she will forever continue to help fellow adult survivors find their voice and welcome their healing through the working of Angela Williams and VOICE Today.
