    in Current Events

    Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show.  Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story.  Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:


    "Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."


    Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime.  Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year.  It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time.  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.


     

  • Matthew Eaton joins show to talk about 13 insidious rules of sex abuse survivors

    in Current Events

    As domestic and sexual abuse awareness grow, the common statement "Why didn't they just leave," still gets mentioned.  Matthew Eaton will join the show today and talk about the 13 insidious rules of sexual abuse survivors.  Many times we associate abuse with some form of physical abuse.  However, the emotional abuse that goes along with the physical abuse can be more harmful, than the bruises.  The bruises go away, but the emotional torment can take a long time to go away. Mathew will also share his story, and how he has survived.  He now writes and blogs about sexual abuse, and is an advocate to raise awareness.

  • Justified Violence?!!

    in Radio

    As a Christian, is the use of violence ever justified?

  • The Parker J Cole Show -- America's Racial DNA

    in Entertainment

    The media has brought to the forefront cases that have caused public outrage and concern. From the curious case of Trayvon Martin killed by George Zimmerman, Michael Brown gunned down as an unarmed felon, to the disturbing incidents surrounding the death of Sandra Bland, there is a definite rise in racial tensions across the United States as the media blares a giant searchlight on situations of African Americans in some sort of confrontation with a Caucasian.

    When these incidents come into the public eye, they lead to an overarching question: "Why?" One black man made a very famous statement while being beaten by a group of police officers: "Can't we all just get along?" The statement has been taken seriously and at the same time, been made a parody. But the question, however one puts it remains. "Can't we all just get along?"

    Is racism simply part of America's DNA -- what makes up this country? Is this just a thing we have to live with and accept? Will those who try to work to bring harmony on either side be ridiculed? Why can't we as a nation get past this? Why does it keep rearing its head? 


    Join in on the conversation with my returning guest Melissa Pellew as we try to tackle this issue and others surround the rise of racial tensions in our country.
