Tolson 4 TEARS Talks 2 Crime Wire Radio

On October 16, 2011, at 8PM EST Lynn C. Tolson will talk on Crime Wire Radio, hosted by activist Susan Murphy Milano. You can call in during the show (646) 478-0982

Susan is an expert in domestic violence and is the author of Time's Up: How To Escape Abusive and Stalking Relationships Guide AND Moving Out, Moving OnThe show included discussions about the tools (evidentiary affidavit) that are now available for victims of abuse to safely leave their violent relationships. Visit her blog here.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month but we must be aware of domestic abuse 365 days a year. "Stories of the realities suffered by victims of violence are written for several reasons: to assist those victims in their healing process, and to reach other victims who may be caught in similar situations."

Joining Lynn and Susan is Tricia McKnight, author of My Justice, which is  "the story of her childhood destroyed by sexual abuse by her stepfather and severe neglect by her mother. The behaviors learned and accepted as a child led McKnight to make bad choices in adulthood and the violence against her continued for many more years within her marriage. Perpetuating the violence in her own home forced her to see what her own children were witnessing.  It’s McKnight’s hope that others will come forward, without shame and embarrassment, to unite in a way that only survivors can."

I (Lynn) wrote about the devastating effects on children who witness their parents and/or other adults in the dynamics of domestic abuse in this blog post.  The bottom line is that time may not heal all wounds, and children often repeat what they see in patterns of behavior later in life.

You can listen to the similarities of survivor stories, and perhaps find inspiration for your own journey.
