Friends it is very difficult and sad to report that at this time it has become necessary for me to suspend our radio broadcasting due to funding. I am no longer able to continue funding this service on my own and donations to support our programming are very few and far between in these difficult economic times. However, I do hope with some new things coming up locally here in my community and also online, that we will be able to resume our broadcasting as a community outreach service of awareness, prevention, and empowerment for others.

In the meantime, I am still here as a mentor, crisis support and of course the Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery mission is still very strong. We will continue reaching out to help others and if all works well with the projects of two new books, then hopefully we will be able to get back into our active, featured, radio broadcasting. Our archive programs will still be available for anyone to access any of our shows which have aired during these past 18 months. It has been incredible to do this and I am grateful for the donations which have come our way. Know that our drive in this mission to protect all beings from harm, build stronger community services for victims, abusers, and families in need, as well as helping personally during time of crisis for others; we are still determined to continue and will never stop believing in the power of recovery.

Please enjoy the many programs we’ve shared by visiting http://www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflydreamstalkradio.

You will find hosted programs by myself, Patricia ‘Trish’ McKnight (Owner & CEO); Michal Madison; Dr. Brenda Joyce Markert-Green; Rachel Grant (Independent Child Sexual Abuse Expert & Recovery Coach); Faith McDaniel (Volunteer Host of Surviving with Faith).

Hopefully our radio shows have touched your heart & your life in some small way that you now are more conscience of these hidden acts, especially within the protective cover of family. Always remember as you watch the children in your life’s circle, it is proven that 92% of all harmful acts against children are committed by parents & close family members. In truth throughout our country, never forget that as of 2011 1 in 3 children are being harmed at any given moment in our society. The often taught ‘Stranger Danger’ only accounts for 2% of all crimes against children. We must teach our children to report even those who they love most and those responsible for their very survival. There is help, hope, & rescue. Let no child endure the pains of terror, sexual actions, and other such emotional & physical harm. It is the duty of every responsible adult around that child to protect and report what they suspect.

Become your own ‘FAMILY DEFENDER’ and keep this mission moving forward by visiting our website at http://www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com

We thank you for your ongoing support and dedication to protecting all those who have no voice, living trapped in the dominant or trafficking control of the monsters within their circle of life.

Its a ‘Family Defender’ Campaign from Butterfly Dreams!!

Its a ‘Family Defender’ Campaign from Butterfly Dreams!!.

Hi there darlins, a very good morning wish your way. May you shine as if you were a wonderful BRANDY NEW PENNY 

Perhaps you’ll do me and your entire family circle a huge favor; maybe you will decide it is time to become your own ‘Family Defender’. You’ve heard me talk about things, and yes rant on about things for about four or five years now. Ha Ha, amazing my ‘friends’ have stuck around  love ya’s for that!! Now I am asking you to make a decision, to stand up straight and tell your circle of family & friends, ‘I’ve learned so much from Trish’s ranting these past few years, I am telling you all that’s it, we cannot sit quiet about this any longer. Tell them there is way too much family wounding from what we know or suspect already. Hopefully you’ll check out the many hundreds of websites available for assistance and different forms of support. Please friends today is the day we are A NEW GENERATION IN CHARGE. Do not let the old teachings, which have brought us to the level of violence and disregard of human life that we live in today. We can do better than this. We are not stupid, or incapable; we are strong and if we do this together as a society finally willing to open the door to these dark realities, protect those just in our circle, we can begin to make a change together. This pledge does NOT COST YOU A PENNY, all I’m asking for is for you to think about how you would begin the change of mindset in your house of friends? Submit your thoughts along with your email info and that’s it, your done and then of course I hope you live in what you commit to change within your circle.

Take care loves, finally got the computer online just now, so here’s to using a loaner, but thanks to the provider for helping out. TTYL

Its really wonderful to wake early in the morning and have the very quiet, bird chirping, sun rising time to myself. Its like an injection of life. This quiet time of morning is when my senses are most heightened as a writer. This flow of energy also drives me to become an activist and no longer the person who just thinks about doing something; the person who is right there; confused perhaps but willing to begin helping the process of change. This is where I come to you for help, advice, guidance, conviction in what I’m sharing. So hopefully,  you’ll read on a bit then give it some thought. If this article in anyway makes you believe there is a way to begin changing what the past has lead us to today, then please pass it on to just one friend and let’s get this party started!! Thanks much ~~

‘ Always believe anything is possible with you in the ACTIVE equation’ ~~ trish mcknight

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Throughout these past four years now I’ve been networking and connecting with other resources of help. Thankfully I’ve found many across the country here in the U.S. but also in many other parts of the world who are speaking out, supporting survivors, providing ways in which studies can be conducted, reports published and voices discussing the deep impact of trauma left in the aftermath of those who’ve endured continuously dysfunctional, deviate or harmful attacks. Think of the perceptions of life you would develop and the behaviors you would pass on to your kids. You may know a young parent dealing with this today.

In having the Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio Network, we have talked with hundreds who’ve been interviewed by myself and other hosts.  All of these person’s have shared the path of self destruction from these types of personal trauma. Keep in mind that most often it is so extreme and so habitual that it is because of a need to survive this person’s wires would automatically adapt to the environment and the behavior of those around them. As once one of these victims I can say that the worst possible part of all those years growing up in pure evil; not one other single adult who had the ability and the training to notice the severe neglect; all those who knew about the trafficking, and those who were close family friends who witnessed it all or heard all the stories shared over the kitchen table about the parties with ‘Trecia Ann’, there were many who knew but not one of these person’s felt that I mattered enough to protect or help in some  way. This is extreme societal abandonment & judgment of a child.

How many children do we have living in this type of life pattern at this very moment? If you think real hard about things you see and the behaviors of others around you, there is a very good chance that you know someone who is trying to pretend nothing horrible is going on.

We can not accept that one more child be abandoned to live in their nightmare. I believe our duty is to educate and continue to discuss how the repeated patterns within our family occur. It becomes our ‘NORMAL’, the constant harm is how we see the world and we don’t expect things to change, yet we somehow know inside that its wrong. The victim grows and their behaviors are often a repeated pattern from what they endured, so this all gets passed on generation after generation. I’m witnessing today how it all impacted the lives of my children and grandchildren. We know that as we become adults it all has to change, it must end somewhere for us or we will surely explode. This is probably where all the psycho serial killers begin.

What if we tried something NEW???

We have been accepting and discussing many changes in our human society. Acceptance, ending bullying & school violence is at the top of everyone’s list. Here is our chance to influence a better way for our children. We can teach the new generation a better way, just as we have already begun to do in many communities around the world; influence a more humane and protective way to view the world around them. Think of the influence it would make if you were to stand up to your family members, not in a rage over what has happened in the past, but instead what you will not allow to happen today. Tell them you have learned what harm occurs to a child’s development when left to grow up in pain and having to keep dirty little secrets. We know what it feels like to be so isolated in the control of your household monster. We have already been there and we will not be quiet while it all continues to happen and destroy another generation; especially when it comes to your own children.

Choose to tell your friends about the choice you made and how you want to make sure we are watching out for all the kids in our circle. Today you choose change. You are your ‘FAMILY DEFENDER’!!

What is a ‘FAMILY DEFENDER’ and how do you become one?

Visit our website at www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com . Please scroll to near the bottom of the page, you will find a contract; ‘BECOME YOUR FAMILY DEFENDER’.On this contract you are providing your signature and making a commitment to change; to be brave enough to end the repeated pattern of harm which occurs in our homes, floods into our streets and is destroying the SAFETY of our children in their schools. Our kids are being bombarded everyday with all types of criminal and deviate behaviors, look on the net and you will see the world our children live in. I’ve seen Youtube displays of torture and explicit sexual contact between our children and adults.

Think about the fact we all only have Six Degrees of Separation between any one person. This means someone knows that child. Someone knows these adults. Someone out there may even suspect or have been a victim of these same adults previously. Someone Knows!!

This is a sincere plea to all those persons who follow my writings about these topics and for the many thousands who support, share and like what is being done through our team at Butterfly Dreams. You can meet each of them by visiting our website, where you’ll also find their links. Take a look at our incredible Board Members, which we are grateful for the outstanding persons they are in their special arena. Review the local training & active support ‘Trish’ is building within her own small community. These are amazing resources, which have the ability to reach out further and encourage our society to take the ‘Family Defender’ pledge. This is a state of mind and if we are going to live in a world of freedom for all person’s then we must provide the tools and commitment to protect those who do not have a voice; those who are forced to live in what are the presumed innocent behaviors within our family unit.

If you’ve read this article and feel you are ready to begin change in your own circle, please visit our website and make the choice today, TAKE THE PLEDGE & BECOME YOUR OWN FAMILY DEFENDER!!

You hold the power of change in your hands, you can create its path and influence its growth. What pattern of human behaviors do you want to teach?

Here are some excellent resource links to share what our FBI VICTIMS ASSISTANCE, COMMUNITY OUTREACH, VIOLENT CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN, and TRAFFICKING OF MINORS divisions are doing across the country. Also a link for you to learn your VICTIMS RIGHTS, no matter what type of crime is committed against you. These are your constitutional rights under national law in the United States. You can have these rights enforced for any criminal actions committed against you, even Identity Fraud, Online Bullying, and other such acts.

Here in Clinton County, Illinois I am continually reaching out to let people know who I am, what I do and why I make the choice to be active against these horrific violent acts against own family members; worst of all being the continuous behaviors of tolerance and victim abandonment. Will you decide to support & protect those who are unable to speak up, fight back, or protect themselves from their household monster? Begin an active change for our decent human morality and begin with the attached pledge. I do hope those hundreds of members in our Talk Radio Group and the thousands on my friends list will help us out here. Please be brave enough to tell the monsters ‘NO’.

Take the pledge to become your FAMILY DEFENDER.

Thank you

May you always be safe & live strong

Patricia ‘Trish’ McKnight

Hello Friends & Supporters for this very important month.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month & Sexual Assault Awareness Month – Hopefully we have all learned something we were not of aware of before. Hopefully we have all heightened our senses about these acts and decided its not right, no we shouldn’t ignore the truth, and yes we should be talking about the ugly acts which most commonly happen within the secrets of our family home. Do not close out this month without hugging your child, making a choice to be your own FAMILY DEFENDER, speaking out in your community. We can reverse the impact of these personally violating and life altering actions, when we discuss them and empower our children to believe in the SAFETY of every being.

Generation after generation we have taught silence, tolerance, and as a result we have numbed our personal emotions of these types of deviate behaviors; this doesn’t mean the act doesn’t viciously alter the life of a child and their perceptions of what is right or wrong. We pass forward dysfunctional behaviors and sometimes ignorance of what is actually happening right inside our homes. Our children do not have to tolerate and accept the extreme acts of physical torture, beatings, neglect of human needs, or the secret act of sexual harm. We can teach them a better way, give them courage to speak about what’s really happening and stand by their claims. Remember this important truth – Our nation had 3.7 Million claims of Child Maltreatment and our system processed  1.4 Million of these reports (in whatever decision they made) – ONLY 0.1% WERE FOUND TO BE FALSECLAIMS!!! It takes great courage to speak against those in charge of your very existence, do not turn away and leave them in a detrimental environment.

Today is the end of the month, but is it the end of the mission; NEVER!!

TELL THE TRUTH – ONE in THREE – SUFFER ABUSE!!    Please take a look at the below information and a report published on our website. It took me three months to breakdown the 270 some page report, gather the correct stats provided, and research the details from each state’s individual reporting.

TRUE indeed our children are in danger every second of every day.   I also depend on the CDC site for reliable information. However, as we well know, stats can only be taken from what is reported, the reports are few and far between because of the silenced child who doesn’t understand, cannot yet speak at all, or the fact that molestation leaves no physical signs other than irritation. I do not dispute the stats shared in the most commonly used stat reference published in 2000 Finklehor, or also a stat report from 2005 which is commonly referenced. I am not a scientist; however I do have 25 years & a certification is business management & accounting. I can add and produce a report, then research & share information I believe is critical when it comes to this specific topic.

I would like to share information I personally researched and recorded (complete with Excel Report for every individual state) concerning our nations claims of Child Maltreatment, CPS employees, Predator information, Demographics of causes and more. In this report taken & researched from National Children’s Bureau, National Child Abuse and Neglect Data Systems in 2011. I have found some of the following informaiton: BOYS ARE A CLEAR 50% OF VICTIMS at 48.6% ; Parents & Family make up 96% of all reported Child Maltreatment, (emotional, neglect, physical, sexual, medical) just think how much power our parents have over our children’s existence. This report also reveals; 1 in 9 children are harmed across the U.S. every single second.  NOTE**Congress allowed for an amendment stating ‘For every report of Sexual Abuse, or Violent Crime Victim, at least SIX others are not.**

THE NUMBER ACTUALLY IN PRESENT DAY COMMENTS, REPORTS, AND STILL FOUND DAILY VICTIMS – MEANS 1 IN 3 CHILDREN ARE BEING HARMED EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY. ONE in THREE, does this not alarm anyone enough to help me publish this report and get these stats or commentary added into some type of referenced information. The report and all of the related details to confirm the above can be found by visiting our website at the direct link shared below.

Let’s TELL THE TRUTH – ONE in THREE – SUFFER ABUSE!!

A simple spark to brighten your spirit ~~ enjoy always

bdarBANNER_thumb.jpg

Hopefully you woke with a spark in your spirit that something you are focused on will indeed come through. We all need something to keep us going and inspire the drive to create something better for ourselves. What if we carried just a small consideration of that same drive to keep those around us safe from harm, all forms of harm. Not to shelter them from knowing the REAL world and pitfalls that trap us, but to keep them personally safe. It is one thing to experience a life skill, but being beaten or controlled, trapped & used as an object – this is not a harm which any living being should have to endure. We don’t allow it for our pets, our farm animals, so why in the world do we turn away when it is a child in our family circle? No more friends. You can choose to be a Family Defender, allow that bright new spark to guide you through. May you always know happiness everyday ❤

Help is always there!! If you have been harmed sexually or physically, please reach out and give yourself a chance to LIVE SAFE.

You are not trapped, there are resources to help you rebuild, recover, develop the skills you need to truly survive. Give those who need us a hand to help them through. Thank you ~~ Always believe anything is possible with you in the active equation ~~ trish
