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

Butterfly Dreams building partnership with FBI Victims Services

Local News

Breese, Il 62230

Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery, a local not for profit victims assistance organization founded by Author/Advocate, Patricia A. McKnight of Breese, Illinois in Nov 2012.

We are very excited to share our Owner/CEO Patricia ‘Trish’ McKnight was extremely honored yesterday, May 13th, when she and two of our governments finest in FBI Victims Services met at PJ’s Diner to discuss the partnership being built to enhance our direct community services for victims of all types of crime. They also discussed the amazing nomination for ‘Trish’ to both attend & speak at the FBI Citizens Academy for enhanced focused training on Victims Services for ALL types of crime.

‘Trish’ is a local author who first shared her story in the memoir, ‘My Justice’. This story was first shared by Vicky Albers in the September 2011 issue of Breese Journal. Her story is horrifying in acts of abuse, violence, child trafficking, sever neglect and more.

‘Yes’ its an ugly topic’ she shares, ‘but it is one that is now taking on more momentum in our nations media these past few years. For me it is about making sure that any of these cruel acts ever has the opportunity to steal away another child’s innocent happiness. Today we in our family units, our neighborhoods, our community activities and our churches; we have a grand opportunity to begin educating our children to believe in their value as human beings with almost all possibilities in life waiting for them to focus and achieve at their discretion.’

Not only has ‘Trish’ been working tirelessly building her more well known Butterfly Dreams Talk Radio which focuses on education, prevention, and awareness of all victims rights; she focuses the work of Butterfly Dreams Abuse Recovery, not for profit organization in connecting resources across the country to aid in services for specialized information & assistance regarding child abuse, family/relationship violence, and human trafficking of all those held against their will or by coercion.

‘By creating a more knowledgeable base support within our entire community we can all play a part in preventing the harm we see and provide a more focused assistance to all person’s affected. These types of acts alter what these victims learn to see in their worthiness and specialty of their person inside. In providing a local connection who can reach out to educate and provide assistance in every small community across the country; we can truly begin to change what has been taught throughout our entire human society for generations, the family tolerance of and a continued denial or taught silence we still teach our children today. Today there are resources throughout the country and around the world who are teaming up to provide assistance and now, I am very proud and humbled to say Butterfly Dreams has reached an astonishing level of connection in partnership of services with our governments FBI Victims Services Unit, and this organization was built within our very own community. We now have team members in California, Arizona, Colorado,Florida, Arkansas and volunteers based out of Canada. All of these team members can reach out and provide some type of knowledge or mentorship for victims in need. We provide education, training, prevention, and basic awareness, and we even have a contact with our country’s Child Help USA who can assist with these reports.’

Yesterday ‘Trish’ met with Special Agent Brad Ware & Victims Specialist Amie Lohman about the new partnership building with our government’s FBI Victims Services and sharing what they are providing/developing across the country to better assist with all services for victims. It was just this past April 12th that ‘Trish’ was keynote speaker at the Hoyelton Ministries, Rescue & Restore National Crime Victims Rights Week 2014 Event held at Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows, where there was also a fabulous 5k Night Glow Run in tribute of what is so commonly overlooked, our rights to personal support and guidance of our cases as given in our Victims Rights.

Moving forward ‘Trish’ and our local Boy Scout Troop #225, are still pushing hard for your recycled old phones. Remember our scouts donate these phones to provide a continuous circle of Emergency 911 Cell Phones for every person ages 5 & above.

‘I believe that each person, no matter their age or other circumstance, deserves the right to carry a basic 911 contact phone. In the circle of Clinton County 911 Cell Phone Recycle Program, we built a partnership with the 911 Cell Phone Bank Recycle Program based out of Florida. The phones you donate to our boy scout troop is collected and sent for recycle to the Florida facility, then I can contact them at anytime for a shipment of phones to be distributed right here in our area; providing emergency services contact at any time for every single citizen who is able to push the 911 button. This means if you or your child needs a contact phone, which can be added to normal phone contract if you choose, but at least is able to reach emergency services at any given time then please just give me a call.’

If you or someone you know is in need of a phone, please contact either Chief Bob Fix, Scout Leader Alan Menietti, or direct to speak with ‘Trish’ you can online. Please visit the website at www.butterflydreamsabuserecovery.com to find out more about ‘Trish’ her history and her learned knowledge today in victims services for recovery & rebuilding life after trauma. You are also invited to listen in to her weekly web based radio broadcast via the link www.blogtalkradio.com/butterflydreamstalkradio. ‘Trish’ is active online through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin and more.

‘Remember to change how the affects of abuse and violence is permitted to continue within our family unit we first need to begin teaching a right for ALL person’s to be safe & live safe. We can end the trained tolerance and silence of these acts to provide a more positive guidance and overall well-being for our children today, by first learning to change our mindset. It isn’t about what may or may not have already happened in your family, but it is about making a choice right now. You can make the choice and become your ‘Family Defender’ and give all person’s in your circle the protection of your support. We can and will change the impression we are now seeing in our schools and on our streets. The acts of Bullying, violence and other crimes are NOT something our children are born with knowledge about, these are things they see in our society & in their homes & families. We can begin to mend these behaviors and provide a more positive impact for their life tomorrow.’
