Make no mistake we are one of the best on these issues broadcasting today. Our shows began after I had spent 10 months doing radio for another organization and then decided I wanted to create something truly special and bring many topics to our society for discussion, so began the creation of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery & Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio. In our first year out we have reached a phenomenal 38,819 listens to our 158 broadcasts. How is that for a first year on air???

We are interested also in finding a male radio host , who has some background in research, press, and ready to bring the amazing male voice to share their perspective. Most definitely our shows are broadcasted to bring awareness, prevention and healing for Men & Women; Teens & Adults. However I truly believe that a male voice on our network would complete our circle of fabulous talent.

If you are interested in joining the team as a volunteer, either as a broadcasting host or as a social media assistant, send me over an email to butterflydreams@charter.net – be sure to tag ‘Host’ or ‘Volunteer’ in your subject line so that I can take a look at your information.

Trish continues to broadcast on Monday & Wednesday evenings. However our show on Monday; ‘A Family Affair’ is based on removing the taboo of these topics and empower our youth, broken parents, and society in general to finally get comfortable in speaking about these topics. In learning together about the trained human behaviors against our loved ones and our children which have been going on for centuries, we can begin to give a positive voice to our children. When we are comfortable learning about the Warning Signs of Sexual Abuse, Maltreatment, and Family Violence, then our children will feel more confident when speaking against the family who is harming them.

Yes, our children know that if a stranger attacks them it’s alright to make a police report and go to the hospital for a forensic exam, which is a process of collecting the evidence left behind by your perpetrator and used to gain justice in our court system. However, when it comes to those in our family, which in truth parents are 94.6% of all offenders when it comes to sexual mistreatment, physical and emotional cruelty, neglect and harassment of children. We teach them to tolerate the one who rapes and molests them; to accept the beatings because they are bad and deserve it; to laugh off the crude comments about being ‘stupid’ or ‘worthless’, ‘ugly’, ‘fat’, ‘lazy’, ‘useless’. We teach them to protect their attacker and remain silent about what really happens in their home. We teach them tolerance and acceptance which leads to dysfunction, self destructive behaviors, self harm, and self loathing for the acts they are forced to take part.

We Must Change This Now!!! Those of us who have endured these types of childhood attacks know the lifelong impacts of the imposed silence and tolerance. We know how we have gone decades hating ourselves and blaming ourselves, simply because that is what we were taught. We were not told that it wasn’t our fault, or that our rapist was a criminal, or that they had no right to burn us, use leather straps to beat us, or even sell us out to others. They were our parents and we were taught ‘Do not speak about the family ‘secrets’. Do not speak about the family dysfunction, the finances, or the cleanliness of our homes. Do not speak against those who are there to give you food, shelter, and clothing.’

To our younger generations, I am telling you today that these types of brutal crimes most certainly are not to be tolerated. It is not your fault they treat you in this manner. You absolutely have a HUMAN RIGHT to safety, especially in your own home.

For all victims of these crimes, please take note of the THREE EMERGENCY RESPONSE STEPS which I do hope you will follow and encourage your friends to follow through with if they have been attacked, even in their home.

1) IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR 911 or OTHER EMERGENCY RESPONSE NUMBER FOR HELP & RESCUE

2) DO NOT SHOWER, DO NOT CHANGE CLOTHES – YOUR BODY IS EVIDENCE OF A CRIME. You will need a forensic exam to document the attack and collect the evidence to prosecute your attacker.

3) MAKE A POLICE REPORT!!! Our justice system cannot prosecute the offenders until we make a complete police report. I know its hard to imagine making a report against your family or parents, but the truth is the truth and often our parents can be the most dangerous people in the world for a child.

Think of what we force our children to tolerate and even to take part in  disgusting vile acts of sexual perversion, which many now broadcast through webcam or other service, while they charge money for others to watch. How can a parent do these acts and still expect to be protected from our justice system?

A parent loves and nurtures their child. A parent should guide and protect their children, not force them to do unspeakable acts of sadistic sexual perversion for the pleasure of others or for their own pleasure. We can no longer teach our children silence & tolerance. This will only allow the destruction of another generation of human beings and a continued acceptance, which could end up invading the lives of your own children later in life.

A few special notesSmile

Michal Madison will be brining back her show ‘Creative Resilience’ which will broadcast once every month, so please watch for an event notice. Also, Dr. Brenda will be back with us again as a guest host, so we will be sharing an event reminder on this excellent show as well.

Well, I guess this takes care of this part of our news right now, but be sure to check back often or visit our website for more information and things you can do to help prevent these types of soul destructive abuses within our family circles. We can teach our children to believe in their value as human beings and stand up to be a voice for the rights of others.

Enjoy your week and hope you are ready for an exciting beginning to our New Year of Broadcasting on the Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio Network, a ‘FEATURED’ broadcast on the blog talk radio network.

Thanks much everyone, hope you pass it forward, become part of #RESOLUTION4CHANGEhttp://youtu.be/JU-c-3G1R_U

Authorhouse.com, Amazon, Barne’s & Nobel – get your copy of ‘My Justice’ an incredible FIVE STAR READ, which has reached collegiate levels for upcoming family therapists, counselors, educators. Compared to be as powerful and touching as ‘A Child Called It’ a New York Times Best Seller written by another amazing survivor, Mr. Dave Pelzer.

Published by @ButterflyTrish

I am a survivor of over thirty years trapped inside the silence and brutality of Family Crimes, Child Sex Trafficking, and a life lived pattern of tolerance for over 30 years in almost murderous relationships. In Feb. 2011 I chose to publish the truth about what happened in our home, the community around me, and the learned patterns of self-hatred and tolerance which became such a huge factor in my life. My life today was built through publishing 'My Justice'. I never would felt worthy of life, breathing, love & respect with first healing myself. There were many things the traits and tragedies that influenced my life seemed to control everything inside me and it was nothing but sadness and fake emotions. Only by facing the horrors I went through, the choices I made as a woman & mother, then relating to the greatest guilt I have; how the trauma behavior has affected my children's lives. It's my hope to help others get through their battles, regardless of the type of trauma because when we hurt our lives are forever changed. This graphic, violent memoir is NOT SUGGESTED FOR ANYONE UNDER 14 years of age. It discusses the permanently wounding life and the cycle of destruction that held me in expecting/tolerating ridicule 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. Connect the dots of your rebuilding in understanding the pattern of adult choices in coping addictions, parenting, and partners; even affecting our careers and self-sustainable life. I'm so honored 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, finally truly loved, finally feeling the magic of what life is supposed to be like. 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 that serious extra step to educate myself through years of research, attending training opportunity, and collaborating with other advocate resources, abuse, sexual harm, and the experts digging deep to recreate help and healing. I've chosen to use my past as a way to inspire a greater good; 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 a survivor of traumatic experiences who can use 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, help my children understand how the violence I tolerated against me invaded their emotional 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 has 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; they created a slave and that slave submitted to horrific and brutal attacks but always felt it was her burden to bare. I lived with that hand holding me down to terrorize and steal away my voice, holding me captive in the dysfunction of the aftermath and casting 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. 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 bare. 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 could 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, provide resources and suggestions for help so that families suffering with addiction or past trauma themselves can find a recovery balance to rebuild their family in 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.
