THROUGH THE EYES OF A VICTIM OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

Total innocence

What a cleansing to finally reach the point in your life that you find true and complete healing as a victim of child sexual abuse. It is not common for me to share this part of my story, but given things that I have heard and seen recently, I feel it is a necessary step…

RAPE IN THE MILITARY

Defending our freedom, defenseless to rape?

In my capacity as an advocate for abuse awareness, over the past weeks I have received numerous reports regarding rape in the military. One report stated that more females in the military are being raped by male members than are being shot and killed by the enemy. That is an alarming statistic. We are also…

Watch for Tomorrow’s Post

Carolyn, the author I am so pleased with the blog post that is to appear here tomorrow, I just want to encourage everyone to be sure to check it out. Remember, July 30, 2011. Eager to get feedback from any and all of you!

Finally! Men Are Speaking Out About Being Molested

When it’s time to revisit some issues, I am convinced one must simply face the facts that perhaps some things have changed, and it’s time to turn the prism to see another facet. Now is one of those times. We have always known there are hidden masses of adults who were victims of sexual molestation…

Caylee Anthony – Three Years Later, the Defense Begins

It is purported that Caylee Anthony became missing on June 16, 2008. Some reports vary by as much as a week, but for the most part, reports go with the June 16 date. Here we are—the defense begins doing its job on the third anniversary of the date a precious little 2-year-old girl either came…

Casey Anthony—What if She is Telling the Truth?

 Be sure to take the poll at the end of this post. This murder trial of Casey Anthony has become quite a convoluted mess, at the very least. I tend to be known for turning the prism around and trying to see every facet I can, so here I go. Some would say I’m playing…

Does the Church Condone Domestic Violence?

Does the Church condone domestic violence? This is a tricky question, or two-sided at the very least. Do I believe the church condones domestic violence? Not intentionally. Do I believe domestic violence is condoned in churches today? Yes, unintentionally. I believe many churches are simply unaware, untrained or uneducated on the nuts and bolts of…

Who Helps the Advocate When the Advocate Needs Help?

Have you ever stopped to wonder who is there to minister to the clergy when they need ministry? I mean, we all need emotional and spiritual support at some time or another, but if they are constantly giving out and never getting anything back, that cannot be a good thing. The same thing goes for…

Sexual Predators – Are You Really Just Googling?

It has amazed me, some of the search engine terms people are using that pop up on my blog site stats, and it has also, at times, sickened me. I realize there is a possibility other bloggers may be seeking valid and acceptable information to utilize on their own blog posts, but some of the…

Where Have I Been?

I just feel the need to touch base and send a “shout out” to all those who visit here, whether regularly or once or twice. I’m recuperating from a week in the Critical Care Unit, final diagnosis is TIA. On the mend and should be back to normal (whatever THAT is for ME!!) very shortly….
