Family Healing Center: Prevention is the Key

IN THE April 29 ISSUE

FROM THE 2017 Articles,
andHelping Hands
SECTIONS

by Steve Wright


I took February off from writing an article as it was a busy month all the way around and our fundraising effort in February took a great deal of time. I spent a good deal of time talking about the impact of child abuse of every kind on our children, families and our society. It breaks my heart every time I talk about it because I have a difficult time with the realization that there are actually people out there who would and do victimize our children.

Last month I spoke about the epidemic of child abuse and sexual assault in our society. I hope the information was valuable and made sense to you. I know statistics can be a little boring to look at and read, and I know there are those who do not really put much trust in statistical information. I also realize there are probably those who may not believe this conduct really occurs.

Family Healing Center: Did you Know?

IN THE September 24 ISSUE

FROM THE 2016 Articles,
andHelping Hands
SECTIONS

by Steve Wright


Our children today are suffering from a tremendous, but hidden epidemic. That epidemic is child abuse, neglect, and sexual assault. Throughout my law enforcement career I have seen and heard many things that I once believed came only from the darkest depths of our society. Those things that no one wanted to talk about, think about, or believe, was going on right under our noses.

Scar Wars Forged in Fright

IN THE June 20 ISSUE

FROM THE 2015 Articles,
andEvery Other Book,
andMental Health
SECTIONS

by Julie Lambeth Pitts


My name is Julie Lambeth Pitts, and I am the author of the recently released book Scar Wars Forged In Fright. This book is a very powerful read. Some of it is so sad and heartbreaking that at times I had to stop writing because the emotions were washing over me like tidal waves. You see, this is a story about a little girl who was physically, mentally, and sexually abused. This child was raped at eleven and again at sixteen because she did not think anyone would believe her, and so she never told. This child was me.
