Patricia A. McKnight, or “Trish” as she is commonly known, now lives her life in the peaceful quiet town of Breese, IL and has finally found the safety, happiness and love she had so desperately longed for throughout her journey. She carries the deep physical scars from the rot of her mother’s neglect, the many emotional wounds of being in an abuse filled life, along with post traumatic spinal cord injury and multiples of vertebral damage from the last brutal attack on her life. However, it is her spirit and vigilance for others that has not been destroyed by the many battles she was forced to endure. In the past few years she has finally found her voice and is now a strong outspoken advocate for the safety and well-being of others.
I am a survivor of over thirty years trapped inside the silence and brutality of abuse. In Feb. 2011 the true and graphic tale of my abuse was published in the memoir “My Justice”, where I have finally removed the coal stained hand, which viciously sneaked in to terrorize and steal away my voice, then holding me captive in the dysfunction in the aftermath of hell. Living in the true spirit of freedom, I have now become a strong advocate against the crimes of abuse. You can join with me in this mission by visiting our new resource and recovery website, or listen in to our live radio broadcast; all which was inspired by the publication of just one voice.
Just think of what your voice can inspire; believe in the power of those wonderful Butterfly Dreams. Thank you.
Thankfully sharing my story has helped hundreds find the courage not only to face their past, but conquer the demons. Abuse and Violence within the home is a destructive force which can take decades to face and a lifetime to recover. Maintaining a healthy positive attitude and focus on your dreams will allow you to find inner peace. Completing small daily goal lists will help build the value in your person, which is commonly destroyed through degradation and dark actions. There is a lot we can do to help survivors recover and rebuild. There is much we can do as a society to help end crimes within our homes. The first step in this mission is to STOP TEACHING SILENCE within our families and placing shame on the victims of these crimes. We are Generation No More; giving our stories to educate society about the struggles of recovery, the damage inflicted, and the lifelong battle of self destructive behaviors. It is an honor to have ‘My Justice’ already used as a teaching guide for upcoming therapists. Feeling grateful~~ trish
