Tonight's special guest is Donna (Dee) Wood from West Virginia, a verbal abuse survivor (as both a child and adult) who says she would be honored to tell her story in the hope she could help others. The devastating effects of the abuse lasted for over forty years, through most of her life. The trauma she endured through her mother’s husband brought a partial amnesia. She writes, "I lived on a small farm in a remote part of southern West Virginia. I was a very introverted child, extremely fearful of strangers." Her mother's husband, who she and her brother always called by his first name, Quentin (never Daddy or Dad), had an intense dislike of people. She goes on, "He never talked to us, unless it was to criticize, intimidate or inflict some form of verbal abuse." He sometimes administered severe belt beatings, beyond the necessary punishable offence, if it indeed was an offense. Her childhood trauma led to a difficult life. But Dee's on a better path now. "If I had known that the problems in my life were due to a term referred to as child abuse earlier in my life," she says, "and if I'd received the appropriate counseling and therapy, then my life would have been much easier and better. Yet, I believe if I had not gone through the trauma of those years I would not be the person I am today." Now she's a person who is more accepting, compassionate and understanding of others who have suffered and still suffer from different types of abuse. "I thank the Lord Almighty for answering my prayers to be whole," Dee writes. "I am still recovering, but I feel a lot more whole today."
Many marital relationships are in trouble. Since we live in a broken world where sin has become the order of the day, every couple should safe-guard the marriage to keep it strong and healthy.

Ruth Moore Act HR 671: The bill would allow a statement by a survivor of military sexual trauma to be considered sufficient proof that an assault occurred. The House approved the bill by voice vote Monday night. Cathy Santos contacted the office of Congresswoman Pingree and shared the following comments as being the only victim of sexual assaults to fight the government and win while service with a 15-6 Pentagon Investigation.
I was concerned about the language here that appears to give sexual assault victims way too much power over their authority. These subordinates while serving, in my interpretation will be able to provide a statement - now, in my experience of 22 years, I know that their are a great deal of women who have been denied the opportunity to tell their stories and to get the remedy they deservied; however, I also believe that the national security is being compromised by the command's ability to lead without these restrictions placed on them by advocates in the civilians world.
How is it possible to lead a command in combat with thiese type who have no real training for war because of the restricitions placed on their leaders.
Sexual assault victims and sexual harassment is a complicated matter and victims die, are murdered in combat. There are no protections for these victims when in combat or other remote environments and the power to use "rape" over their superiors is not to be taken lightly.
Civilians can not protect victims of rape on active duty, it will get worst for them, and no civilian can protect those who are given the power to provide a "statement" that becomes the only evidence required when false accusations are made, and reputations and careers are ruined - this is a poorly worded legislation and the military is not moving forward as a result. I will be following up.
On July 13, a young 28-year old woman was found hanging from a noose made from a plastic bag (allegedly) in her cell at the Waller County Jail in Texas, where she was incarcerated after allegedly assaulting an officer during a July 10 traffic stop. Her death is being investigated as a murder, though authorities have said that she appeared to have hanged herself.
Who was this young woman, who was like so many young adults who have spoken openly of racial and police injustices? … Her name is Sandra Bland.
Here we find ourselves again, addressing the loss of a life of another young black person under suspicious circumstances while in the custody of law enforcement, and Hot Topics Talk Radio will be addressing the inconsistencies in the accounts of the death of Sandra Bland.

Join me tonight as I chat with Janet Surrey, a Buddhist dharma leader and clinical psychologist internationally known for her work on relational theories of women's psychological development, diversity, mothering, adoption and substance abuse as we discuss her new book, The Buddha's Wife. Tune in and learn about the Princess Yasodhara and why her story matters in the 21st century. Hear about this demystification of the Buddha's sacred myth and how Yasodhara's story represents the inequalities that are still present in many traditional religions and faiths.
Rape culture is a concept in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality. Behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm of some forms of sexual violence, or some combination of these. There is evidence to suggest that rape culture is correlated with other social factors and behaviors. Rape myths, victim blaming, and trivialization of rape have been found to be positively correlated with racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, classism, religious intolerance and other forms of discrimination.
The most recent case with Bill Cosby has sparked the need to have this discussion. Both men and women, can be raped. Both men AND women can be blamed for rape. I want to have an open, adult discussion about it.

My first experience with Laughter Yoga is very memorable. I didn't want to go and thought that it would be a complete waste of time. And, I declared that I was not planning to engage in "senseless" laughing. Well they proved me wrong. I loved it and laughed along with everyone else - and couldn't wait for the next session a month later!
Brigitte Keane, dear friend and longtime experienced Laughter Yoga Teacher, was trained by Dr Matan Kataria, original founder of Laughter Yoga. Laughter Yoga is celebrating its 20 Anniversary and is practiced in over 60 countries.
Health benefits of laughter include but are not limited to: no stress, feel good hormones, every one can do it without special clothing/equipmen, everyone benefits, get in touch with your inner child, becomes a way of life, cutting edge, importance of anti-stress and laughter. There are many applications of laughter that will be discussed during the show.
Brigitte cannot think of anything more needed in our society by every one. Ten minutes of laughter equals 30 minutes of aerobic exercise ~ Jogging for the organs and intestines!
Join us on Wednesday evening and Get Your Laugh On!!!
