Recently, Facebook locked and removed my decade long creation of work and public profile, which focused my work as an advocate, speaker, mentor, and creator of more than a few programs used throughout Illinois, but also shared nationally and some have reached international platforms. So.... let's start fresh and see where it goes! Please see the writings on this blog dating back into 2011, created after the publication of 'My Justice'. There are two specifically, which have been tagged and shared by many....."Judging Eyes" and "Triggers; what they are and how to handle them" I am a survivor of over thirty years trapped inside the silence and brutality of Family Facilitated Violence, Torture, and Child Sex Trafficking. In Feb. 2011, I chose to publish the secrets and the horrors endured; the many levels of destruction and decay which the community around me witnessed, ignored, condemned and blamed regardless of the injuries and tortures endured. It all became the learned patterns of self-hatred and tolerance which was a huge factor in my adult life. Have you endured childhood harm, or endured terroristic types of abuses? Did you feel unworthy of life, breathing, love or respect? Did you feel as if no one ever really saw you, heard you, or seemed to care about the silent cruelties of your existence? It wasn't until I honestly began a strong focus on healing myself, which took years of researching credible data and published research surrounding the lasting effects of abuse, violence, sexual harm, and human trafficking that I began to understand who I was and why there were many traits and tragedies that influenced my adult choices, relationships, the chaos deep in my soul and the behaviors used to survive. It seemed to control everything inside me and it was filled with pain, and tragedy. The research became my rebuilding journey and my road to advocacy, creating legislative changes, sitting as an active member and providing testimony in the creation of area task force operations, victim/survivor services, trauma informed awareness for law enforcement, educators, social services, healthcare and community providers. I began that research of understanding myself in 2008, wrote the memoir "My Justice' in 2010, began working to change statutes in my home state in 2013, became a Certified DV Advocate and Panel Member of DV Offender Education Program in 2015, which then initiated a decade long career as a trusted, confidential advocate, and a highly skilled and knowledgeable speaker/educator on the topic of Assessment, Family/Survivor Rebuilding, Trauma Informed Care & Response, with the primary focus on family/relationship acts of terroristic abuses and/or human trafficking. Beginning in January 2010 there have been developed programs and connected resources for men, women, children, and families who endured these same types of tragedies. Unfortunately, our human society still has barriers to seek help or speak openly about these types of tragedies, especially if it happened in our homes and families. The laws to protect from such harms were enacted for children in 1963, as an amendment to the Social Security Act. Domestic Violence was not a topic until 1995, when then Senator Joe Biden introduced the Violence Against Women Act, which has since been adapted to provide shelters, counseling, protection orders, and rebuilding services for ALL persons regardless of gender or identity. Although slavery was brought to an end by the historical act of President Abraham Lincoln, we unfortunately have millions of human beings still being traded, sold, controlled and trapped in a hellish evil, which often begins by a parent or intimate partner. Legislation didn't arise regarding the term 'Human Trafficking' until the turn of the new millennium. Protection for victims of human trafficking was signed into law as the 'Trafficking In Persons Act of 2000', which with modern day social media it quickly became a new hot-topic point, which then sparked the creation of Trauma Informed Care, Rebuilding & Trauma Therapy, and thus adult survivors began speaking out about the dark terrifying reality of Child Sex Trafficking. Today many use the term, Modern Day Slavery, and we have multi-faceted task force operations and rescue resources working around the globe to end this new form of human slavery. We also have a few hundred thousand or more who are adult survivors of histories involving Parental Child Sex Trafficking. In one recent study from 2018, they found 85% of these victims were trafficked by parents in trade for drugs, family needs, or basic human survival. As I look back on the career that grew from my own personal need to understand the chaos in my head, the constant failed relationships and almost murderous acts committed against me; as I deal with increasing health problems that includes multiples of head and spinal cord traumas; the most important goal for me from day one of this extremely personal experience; the healing and rebuilding of my own children and grandchildren who were all continued generational victims of the trauma influenced behaviors and choices that resulted from the destruction enforced by my mother and stepfather many decades ago. The little girl, 'Trecia Ann', she survived pure evil as an entire community witnessed, shamed, blamed, and dismissed the visible decay and rot, stench and filth covered, battered and intoxicated body of a young girl who was publicly exploited and shared in the bars of that small town, in her home with boys she attended school with and adult men from the local coalmine. It was as if they all got a thrill from watching her respond to the ring of that little brass bell. They laughed, molested, raped, and purchased for a few bucks or a few beers the sexual use of that young girl right in full public view! Her mother held the power to stop it all, but rather enjoyed having a 'slave' to cook, clean, care for the family as well as entertain the sadistic alcoholic man she chose to marry. Today, I'm so honored and proud to have that little girl's spirit with me. It is through the use of my lived experience, along with a decade of research, and at least five certifications in prevention, response, and trauma; I've assisted a few hundred survivors through the multilevel process of rebuilding and reclaiming their voice, their safety, their freedom! I've trained law enforcement, healthcare, childrens service investigators, our school educators, and co-presented in trainings with some outstanding experts in the field. For the many I've assisted or empowered, they continue becoming thriving survivors, advocates, authors, speakers, and most important of all; they are healing their children and grandchildren! It is a truly beautiful experience and I am so amazed to have been a spark, a resource, or a friend in their life reclaiming freedom. The adult children of generations past have broken through the glass ceiling and finally there is a hint of change in the world. "A lifetime filled with daily torture, tragedy, and pain creates someone completely different than we should have been. We feel that person inside, but our lives are altered by the emotional and physical suffering. We cover it up and hide it deep inside through substance abuse, which falsely helps us believe we are doing fine. The extreme physical and emotional injuries leave our mental and physical selves terribly impacted. Thankfully there is more information and resources of help available today for all types of adverse or traumatic experiences. We have specialized therapeutic help and healthcare professionals developing new ways to identify and assist persons harmed or at risk of harm. We have so much more to do, so please help by having casual open conversations with your friends, family, coworkers, leaders, and especially our kids. Teach them early how to avoid both online and in person harms. Encourage adults and kids both to use the BDA Buddy Skills 2.0, which you will find through my list of assessments and prevention strategies. "My Justice' was written through my own beginning of acknowledging and releasing the personal destruction of the girl once known as 'Trecia Ann'. It is not an easy read, but it has opened many eyes about the reality of evil that occurs inside our homes, against those too small to protect themselves or understand what's happening. It was published to release the thick layers of trauma, sex trafficking, and disfiguring neglect. It is the voice of the enslaved child who existed only to answer the ring of 'his' bell, and the enforced burden to keep my own private terrorist alive. 'My Justice' is NOT SUGGESTED FOR ANYONE UNDER 16 years of age. It discusses the permanently wounding life and the cycle of destruction that held me in tolerating ridicule, control, and violence in my adult relationships. This truth was published to inspire others to take an in-depth look at their life and behaviors as a result of their past, in hopes they too will better understand their suffering today, the continued relationships with the parents and family who inflicted those harms, and finally breaking free from that pain so they can reclaim their voice and their true sense of freedom! We always have the opportunity to learn that we are worthy, capable, incredibly strong, compassionate, and filled with endless possibilities. It is a choice. It is a conscious decision to dig into our trauma, take ownership of our own failures, the harm our choices have caused, and the work we need to do to change it and succeed for ourselves and our families. It is such an honor to have 'My Justice' used at the collegiate level for psychology classes, upcoming therapists, and educators. Today my life is very blessed. I'm finally safe, feel truly loved, finally feeling the magic of life! Always choose to see your star and how it shines on others in your journey. My greatest power only began to show when I first made the choice to end the violent relationships and behaviors around my children; to give them something better, something SAFE!! In choosing to share my own story, I've also gone the serious extra step to educate myself through years of research, attending training opportunities, and collaborating with other advocate resources focused in human resilience and healing from abuse, sexual harm, and sex trafficking. Today there are experts digging deep to recreate help and healing. I've chosen to use my past as a way to inspire a greater good and; hopefully, somehow change the cycle of tragedy in our homes so that we empower our kids to live a more positive path. The best education we can give is healing our survivors of traumatic experiences so we understand what they felt then and what they wish they would have had available; those who could have and should have said something. We can change things for our life today, but best of all in healing our wounds, we give communities a supportive working strategy in assisting the people in our lives. One step at a time, one caring soul at a time, we can give them a path to changing our human society as a whole. This is a tell-all, which was written in the midst of my third nervous breakdown as I struggled to put all my distorted pieces back together, and help my children understand how the violence I tolerated against me invaded their well-being. My children have always been my world, but my behaviors, lack of healthy parenting and life skills, and an inability to remain stable have caused another generation of suffering for my grandchildren. This is a very difficult thing to watch and the continued tragedies that seem to keep affecting the choices in my family. Writing this book was only the beginning of trying to release all that has haunted me for so many years. I have finally removed his thick, cruel, coal-stained hand which trapped me in fear for decades. Those hands and his evil, her housemaid and caregiver; created a slave, and that slave submitted to horrific and brutal attacks but always felt it was her burden to bear. I lived with that hand holding me down, continually terrorizing and silencing, stealing my voice to protect their pure evil. Throughout decades the dysfunction caused by the chaos inside my head would affect every relationship, my children, and cast a shadow of darkness on everything good in my life. Living in the true spirit of freedom, I have now become a strong advocate against the life cycle of human destruction. If we want to control our life and achievements today, then we cannot live stuck in the tragedy of hardships and pain. Life is meant to be lived, to be enjoyed, to see what you can do and what you can achieve, to find out what is important to you. We all become adults. We all have a burden to bear. Stand up and keep moving, keep living, keep dreaming. You have two choices in recreating and rebuilding yourself. Do you stay stuck in the dark shadows of your past? Do you dig deep and find that spirit that kept you alive so that you can become the proud, strong, capable, resilient, kind human being? Which do you choose and how will that choice affect your children and theirs? We can be supportive, and provide resources and suggest help so that families suffering from addiction or past trauma can find a recovery balance to rebuild their family into a more positive life pattern. We will recover, we will rebuild, we will conquer the pains of yesterday to live in the true sense of life, freedom, and safety today.

  1. God Bless your efforts… To this day, I am being subjected to abuse, verbally, financially, emotionally, and socially, by a mother who, having had a liver transplant, drank whiskey with my father, and abused both my sister Angela, and father, to the day of their deaths… She slanders me to all, including police, filing false claims and reports, playing through a cycle of “criminal vicim-stance”… Long distance, she will sit on the phone from another state, crminally interfering with my life.
    I was also attacked by several people, because, as a witness, I stopped a rape!… A female was being raped in a car… After the group of crminal rapist-abusers attacked and harassed me, police turned it on me, for simply existing in my home town, instead of keeping me informed of the release from prison, after only a three year plea sentnce

    1. Bill, thank you much for your blessings of support. Indeed society is still so blind and accepting when it comes to the abuse/violence, especially those that exist within our homes. Victims need to know they have a right to speak, freedom of speech is in our constitution and is our First Amendment Right!!! Yes many may turn against the truth because they do not have the courage to accept what they have allowed to happen. We are the new generation and no more will we accept what previous generations have allowed. We know the destruction of these crimes and we can help our kids by encouraging others to become more involved with the truth. thank you again, hope to have you listen in to our programs on the blog talk radio shows. We have received over 2200 listens in just 5 shows so it is indeed being widely accepted!!! With the Lord’s blessing we will continue on this path.
      thank you,
      trish 😉

  2. I have created an award winning advocate/teacher/counselor book “Never Ever Your Fault” and a middle school and high school presentation on PowerPoint complete with scripts. “Never Ever Your Fault” is a comprehensive program for use in Middle and High school classrooms, guidance offices, or auditoriums. It teaches boundary establishment and esteem building with the age specific educational material. It has a script for victim advocates and educators complete with age specific tests and exercises. It has been field tested for two years with grand success. I am also developing a pre K-5 version called “The Heart of the Matter” which includes a poem that can be put to song “Only I can Touch Me there’” using a set of parrot puppets which are seen throughout the book. Also included is a book that teachers can print, cut, fold, and staple together or bind as a project. I hope to make it into a hard cardboard chunky book as well called “Today I am”.

    The book houses the “Educational program” mapped out in biography format as advised by the “Director Of Special Projects” from Hiram College in Ohio. Roger Cram is one of my biggest encouragers. It was originally in 5 separate books. Roger felt I should sew them all together into one book. Roger donated my site, now with over 11,000 visitors. Many have communicated their thanks. I am currently communicating with a student that Daniel Keck (Marietta, Ohio) raped and molested. His mother found and contacted me from the site.

    I co-illustrated this program with our daughter. Her work from age thirteen on, adds an authentic appeal for teens and most of the art pages are actual posters. There is student participation laced throughout my program. I hired a student to make the HS PowerPoint disk cover, and another to print art on the actual disk. There is other student art in the book as recognized in the back of the book in the Gallery.

    The history of my incest experience is in the book. It is for those who want to read the experience and get a broader view of the healing process from incest to wellness. It is entitled “Journal of Innocence Stolen”(graphic) I fictionalized my age as a request by our daughter and wrote it journal entry style as a murder mystery. It is a true account of what happened to me, slightly fictionalized. The poetry compilation “New Light Same Sun” was written during my two years as a victim advocate. It charts my feelings from anger to forgiveness.
    I was in the classroom full time working with the students and connected directly with the fresh new issues of the day. I asked them what they needed from me. They spoke and I listened. I was told I might have three disclosures a year. With this program I had over thirty in my two-year term some were boys and teachers! I wrote all of my own material. Being in the fields and trenches, I found and was told much of the material I was given to script from was outdated, condescending and gender biased unfairly tipping the scales against boys. Many got defensive. My teachers and students strongly encouraged me to write a book based on my presentations. I resigned at the end of the 2002 school year. And began writing. When I felt close to completion, I wrote Gavin de Becker (He and his associates found Jodi Foster’s stalker) and asked if he would do the foreword. His representative said he would likely do so upon publication.

    I have submitted the disc to the Department Of Education in Tallahassee, FL. in hopes of stimulating interest and funding for program development. I met with a task force at the State’s Attorney office and showed my High School PowerPoint. It was met with very positive input. The books follow guidelines as laid down by the New Generation Sunshine State Standards for Health Education. I have also gone to the National level for appeal looking for corporate sponsors. I have received my Victim Services Practitioner Designation from the Attorney General. The program is copyrighted with the Library of Congress. All quotes are appropriately approved. I have been working on this for 16 years. I lend myself whole-heartedly to the youth of the world. These are hot societal issues, ripe with purpose.

    I appreciate your time and efforts concerning this project.

    Thanks again.

    1. Rose, thanks so much for sharing all you are doing, what a grand success indeed!!! There is such a need for our schools to see children will not simply come to you and say my parents are raping me. We must open the door and remove the fear and shame attached by the attacks. You are giving so much, many great wishes and I’d love to have you on the show. We must talk more. Pls connect on facebook or linkedin so we can discuss or email to cheers & thank you for giving to help them 🙂

  3. This was originally a letter I sent to the last President Bush…Never got any response

    The last time I “begged” somebody for something, it was my Uncle and I was 10. I begged him not to rape me. It was a life experience that continued until I was 17. I pray that you will not be so calloused when I beg you to keep our Rape education programs here ALIVE! I am begging you. 2 years ago I wrote a detailed journal documenting my years of rape and incest. I charted the progression of feelings and how molestation and rape affected me as I grew into an adult. I also charted my struggles, my torment and the mountain of WORK my emotional recovery entailed. I did this so I would not lay a transparency of my youth over my 2 children (10 and 15) to enable myself to have a clean experience with them, as they grow healthy. My husband and I educated them.
    With my “exorcism “ complete, the next course of action I took was to donate my 16-page document to our local Sexual Assault Center. The director was the person who received my journal. The center called me the next day absolutely blown away with the content of my journal. We talked. They encouraged and trained me to be an educator. I now work in the 4 county school system here in Lake City and the surrounding areas. I was told that I would have, maybe, 3 disclosures a year. Mr. President, in ONE school year my disclosures numbered over 30 and several were TEACHERS! Our center has helped so many people that we get stopped on the street to listen to disclosures. The problem here in rural America is mounting and not limited to “big city”. We have secluded areas where people live blocks and miles away from each other. No one to hear cries or screams. It is a fearful thing and you have the ability to make a huge difference here. I am begging you to not take away our power to educate and inform our children that these crimes against them are NOT their fault and I beg you not to take away our power to help the volumes of children that actually need our programs along with the ones already being helped. I do not beg often and I do not beg without grave cause.
    Understand first and foremost that sexual abuse is not just a “Women’s” issue. It is a societal issue. Male members are victimized proportionately the same as women and they too have to deal with the long-term effects of sexual battery. My uncle polluted our whole family system by victimizing my mom, my girl cousin, his own son, aunts and uncountable friends and their children. We as a race have a moral obligation to better ourselves collectively. We cannot win a war we choose to ignore. Humans put their heads in the sand like the ostrich, and do not want to believe that in this day and age the trauma of incest and crimes of the like, do not exist. We are in somewhat of a cultural amnesia. My goal along with the others at the center and centers across the country (doctors, lawyers, Indian chiefs… all represented here) is to keep the awareness of SEXUAL BATTERY and like crimes of violence, on the surface and in your face. We are surviving and thriving in spite of the burden of trauma. There is a backlash movement of people in places of authority who are uncomfortable with this imbalance of power that is shifting as our voices take wing and we talk about our horrific experiences of victimization and powerlessness. Parents, grandparents, friends, relatives, trusted guardians violate our trust every second of every day and overstep boundaries. As you read this, someone is involuntarily being touched, penetrated, awakened from rest, harmed, maimed and psychologically scarred for LIFE!!!! These crimes take forever to wrestle. Society as it exists right now, in the year 2001, turns a deaf ear, or a desensitized ear on the perpetual inundation of the reality they see every day of the effects long term violation has on our way of life. It seems easier to most in this “ hurry up I want it now” era, to ignore and place blame, than to get pro active and take a risk. Denial is the disease. The entire blame cannot be placed on the working mother nor can it be blamed on existing gun laws. We must admit that power not sex, plays an enormous part in violence. Violence and the use of it for power is the root of WHY bad things continue to happen in cities and rural societies. We must pool our resources of compassion and education and listen closely to the voices of our children and our maimed society. Look at the bruises. Kissing them will not make them go away. We have to integrate our knowledge into every area of government and civilian personnel to learn to deal with the injustices that truly exist in the personal lives of real people we all know, love, talk to and see every day. This problem is rampant and there are solutions. It will take dedication, patience, FINANCIAL RESOURCES and time. We must not lose the compassion and reason we are gifted with. That separates us from every other animal on this earth. Laws are changing and the balance of power is shifting. Victims are beginning to get their day in court with laws that are empowering them. There is a sad reality though, that by the time some statutes of limitation pass, it is too late for so many. There is always crisis in trauma work. Criminals adamantly work to discredit victims. We who scream our tales of incest, rape and violation bring discomfort to ”we the people” and the powerful. We upset the imbalance of power. Our culture is designed to do us in. It is VICTIMS VS PERPETRATORS.
    People don’t understand the disconnection associated with sex crimes. There is a mourning process. Decision making procedures become very distorted in victims of sexual abuse especially victims under the age of 18. These intrusions and forceful coercions, cause immense pressure and affect living in the healing experience. These dysfunctions require very tailored therapies which, to date, are unavailable to most. We must broaden the field, teaching tolerance, flexibility and compassion. We must better train the person inside the “healthcare professional”. We must teach our professionals better bedside manners. Unfortunately we don’t have classes widely available to us until we do something wrong and then it is obligatory. Even our kids today are poorly informed and taken advantage of. We don’t trust from fear. There are estrangements in families with secret histories of chronic sexual dysfunctions and diseases that span decades and centuries. Don’t talk, don’t heal and society doesn’t care!!! Mr. President, this is why the funding of our education programs is imperative from the earliest grade.
    Don’t underestimate the number of sexually abused humans. We are becoming an organization with critical mass. I have resolved myself to revisit my own trauma to help others. We need your financial support and we need a forum to educate and enlighten. In a society that only pretends to socialize criminals, we must voice our discomfort and indignation so that the stigma of sexual abuse does not slip between the cracks of the floorboards of civilization. It is more than a tiresome thing that nags. It cannot be resolved to be exhausted from hopelessness. Hear our voices now loud and clear, it is your voice too. This is a hot societal issue ripe with purpose! What our programs offer are basic life skills such as respect and how to behave responsibly when bullied and how to help your own self if you are a bully. They teach about responsible, respectable, healthy dating skills, and so much more on an intrinsic level. The classes teach the statistics on date rape and rape and bring to the surface the reality of victimization. We offer solutions to kids who have the absolute bravery to ask for help. (My personal heroes) Many kids are not learning these things from their caregivers, as most would expect. I have had such an overwhelming positive response from my presentations that I KNOW they are making a difference to effect change for the collective betterment of mankind. I beg you to keep our programs alive and funded for MY students. I wish I had seen an educator like me when I was a teen. Just hearing the words would have been enough to encourage me to shift the blame from myself and onto my adult abuser where the responsibility belonged entirely. It is not going away without the concerned effort educators can offer. I am not alone in this. All of our kids NEED this. What are you willing to do to stop sexual abuse and incest and like crimes as a member of your community and a full time member of the human race?

    1. Rose, I have also emailed President Obama, sent a copy of ‘My Justice’ w/ a three page letter to our First Lady; have emailed Illinois Senator Dick Durbin at least three times, have blogged and begged politicians and Dr. PHil to do something and help me get this out there, recognizing the survivors of generations past and helping the children of tomorrow. Still no response has ever been received. I feel your heartbreak and send the same prayers to the Good Lord above that He will somehow allow a break through of this barrier of silence to rescue our society from this type of evil. thank you and please never give up. I am walking the path with all the advocates and orgs who are in this battle for our children. I encourage you to check out the website and see all that is shared there.
      My thanks and blessings your way 🙂
