The episode I’m currently working on bringing to you deals heavily with crimes against children. It’s about the documentary “The Witnesses” that aired on Oxygen (which I hope everyone watches). As it turns out, I was recently informed that the subject matter is hitting real close to home- a family member has been molested. I am angry and in an extremely emotional state over these revelations, and speaking about this right now is -in a word- painful. It brings back painful memories for me (an abused and exploited Black woman). It also makes me wonder how I missed the signs. There’s a bit of guilt being felt by the entire family at this point. That being said, I will ALWAYS advocate for the victims of child sexual assault and this situation just adds fuel to a fire that may only be quenched when there is an end to the victimization of children everywhere. I am more committed than EVER to put out an episode that will light that fire under my audience- or maybe just fuel it, because I am positive you all despise child molestation as much as I do. I’m gathering more info in the interim. I’m only asking that you respect my process in dealing with this news. I just need a little time. Then get ready- cause next episode I’m going all the way IN!! Love ya, miss ya- later bookworms.
After thousands of years of being victims of the heinous crime called rape, one man has ALL the answers we need to avoid it. I’m not sure how no one thought of this before, so I am COMPELLED to share the truth. The following is a blueprint to being safe in an unsafe world. Please share with anyone who hasn’t been sexually assaulted yet!
