Tonight's special guest is Dale Hemming from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a returning NAASCA family member. Among numerous other issues for Dale is the safety of our children and Domestic Violence. Tonight he'll be sharing about his latest Sioux Falls Domestic Violence billboard campaign for 2019 that features images and messages concerning Domestic Violence month (in October). Dale, now in his 70s, leads the effort at 'Free Thinkers'. He became an activist in 1960 while he was in high school. Dale explains, "If one looks at the appalling statistics and facts on child abuse you will understand my involvement in the issue," Dale says. He's addressing child abuse and domestic violence head on via billboards, at his own expense. "I believe we need to stop hiding the ugliness of child physical and sexual abuse. If someone thinks my images are too graphic, they should go down to the emergency rooms or the intensive care units at the hospitals. Then they'll get to see the real thing. The truth is much more extreme than I've chosen to use for my billboard images. I'm convinced that anything less than what I'm doing just enables the violent abusers. The last thing they want exposed is the brutality of what they do.” Dale has appeared on our show many times, always sharing about the terrific work he's doing for his hometown.
