    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1235

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Deborah Dooley from Denver, Colorado, a NAASCA family member who's making her first appearance as a special guest on our show. "The support of the unity of your organization has already impacted me," she told us some time ago. "I already felt great about even making contact with you and knowing what you are doing that it gave me a refreshed hope about my own journey of healing." Deborah's a proud member of the Christian community, but also wrote me that she recognized the benefit of using a 12 step "design for living" for child abuse recovery, saying, "Many times, I have thought about how valuable it would be to have a 12 step program for abuse issues that could translate to help all people since the 12 step is so effective in its use." A 12 step program encourages belief in a Power greater than oneself, of course, but allows for a God as you understand Him. She said, "I, personally, hope to go through this 12 step program that you have developed" (please see www.ASCA12step.org). Deborah was born in Hawaii but lives in Denver now, and tells us she's the proud mother of a daughter who unfortunately ended her life in July 2013 after a long series of very traumatic circumstances. "My life up until her death was focused on getting her safe from abuse by her dad since the courts don't protect kids from this," she says, "and there's no place to turn for help at this point to protect your child. I am now working on what is the best and most expedient solution for the courts." She believes that these kinds of preventable tragedies can be stopped from happening to children and families. Deborah hopes to work toward making our country be more loving towards its children.

    Perry “DOC” Black was born and raised in the great state of Louisiana in 1965.  In 1983, two weeks after graduating high school, he left for his first tour in the Army.  Perry hated the Army life and left the Army 3 ½ years later and became a steel fabricator in Louisville KY.  After working for 5 years as a civilian, after losing his job due to involvement with union organizing.  He then spent the next six months partying and one morning he woke up staring at the ceiling and decided to return to the Army.  Perry decided he wanted to be an Airborne Ranger and was lucky enough to get a Ranger contract.  Ironically enough, Perry had never heard of the 75th Ranger Regiment and was unaware of the destiny awaiting him in becoming such an influential member of the Regiment.

    His career as a Ranger started when he arrived in 3/75th in July of 91.  He is a combat veteran of the Battle of Mogadishu, Somalia in 93, which is the inspiration for the famous book “Black Hawk Down”, written by author Mark Bowden, and movie directed by Ridley Scott.  Doc served in 3/75th, from 91-97.  He then went to Task Force 160, where he worked as a Special Operations Flight Medic from 97-99.  He returned to his beloved Ranger Regiment, at 1/75th, from 99-01 as BN Senior Medic.  He was then selected to be the Joint Special Operations Medic Course, Ranger Liaison.  He served as Trauma instructor and later became the first Ranger NCOIC of the Special Operations Combat Medic Course and retired from active duty in 2007.  Some of his awards and decorations include the Bronze Star with Valor 3-Oct 1993, MSM x 6, numerous ARCOM’s and AAM’s, EFMB, CFMB, Ranger Tab and Aviation Crewmember Wings.  His military courses and certifications include the US Army Ranger School, SERE-C, JSOMTC, Jumpmaster, NREMT-P, Scout Swimmer, JOTC, PLDC, BNCOC and ANCOC.

    Gratitude Night !! On this Thanksgiving evening, we'll pause to give expressions of our gratitude for our recovery from child abuse and trauma, and express our desire that we can be effective in our mission .. (1) to educate the public to stop the silence and (2) to offer hope and help to the still suffering adult survivor of child abuse. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org

    The Gratitude Hour: What are you grateful for?

    in Spirituality

    It's Thanksgiving in America.  It is a day of giving thanks and celebrating our bountiful abundance.  Each year, families gather from miles apart to come together in thanks.  Even though the holiday was started as a rememberance of pilgrim days, there is something deeper going on here.  When you bring forth an act of gratitude, you are at a very high vibrational state.  The more frequently you do this, the higher your vibrational state. By making a conscious decision to be in this vibration, we automatically attract more good things into our lives through the law of attraction.  This is something that many great teachers have shown us including Buddha, Jesus, and others.  Sadly, though, many of us focus on what is missing in our lives.  We focus on what is wrong and lacking.  In doing so, it attracts more of that energy to us.  We want to work on always being in a state of gratitutde in the present moment.  

    I invite you to call into my show on Thanksgiving to publicly declare your statements of gratitude to the world.  It doesn't have to be big.  It can be something as simple as being alive.   We will also be ending the show with a collective group meditation to help increase our abundance and eliminate lack , fear, worry, stress, and any other concerns from our lives. I may also draw oracle cards as I feel guided, so please call in! 

    About me:  I am an Angel Intuitive, a Certified Angel Card Reader, Massage Therapist, Reiki Practitioner, Healer, Teacher, and Friend.  It is my desire to use my gifts and abilities to bring you blessings and return you to the path of Light.  For more information about what I do ,or to receive a professional reading, please visit my website:  www.ascensionmagic.com.   I also invite you to follow the show to keep up with new episodes.

    Tonight's special guest is Barbara Ochoa from San Francisco, a returning NAASCA family member who's Executive Director at Help4Guys.org. Barbara's here once again to talk about the events that are planned in celebration of "Male Abuse Awareness Week" (MAAW) which is held each year during the first week of December. MAAW is an awareness campaign that was started by the P. Luna Foundation in 2008, and the website is an extension of that program. The main focus is to change the negative social stigma that goes along with the topic of males who are victims of sexual or emotional abuse and domestic violence. "Most abused males avoid therapy and treatment because they are too ashamed or afraid of being judged for doing so," according to the web site. "By bringing the subject to light once a year we hope to make this topic more socially acceptable and in return more men will feel comfortable enough to seek the help they desperately need but in many cases avoid." Since the awareness campaign's inception in 2008 we at NAASCA have been pleased to participate hand-in-hand with Barbara Ochoa, and Bill Murray has appeared at several of the live events. We too want to help men who were victims of past abuse break their silence, in order to inspire younger men into getting treatment. Like Barbara, we have seen more and more celebrities come forward and many more news stories reporting on males who are victims of abuse.
