The episode I’m currently working on bringing to you deals heavily with crimes against children. It’s about the documentary “The Witnesses” that aired on Oxygen (which I hope everyone watches). As it turns out, I was recently informed that the subject matter is hitting real close to home- a family member has been molested. I am angry and in an extremely emotional state over these revelations, and speaking about this right now is -in a word- painful. It brings back painful memories for me (an abused and exploited Black woman). It also makes me wonder how I missed the signs. There’s a bit of guilt being felt by the entire family at this point. That being said, I will ALWAYS advocate for the victims of child sexual assault and this situation just adds fuel to a fire that may only be quenched when there is an end to the victimization of children everywhere. I am more committed than EVER to put out an episode that will light that fire under my audience- or maybe just fuel it, because I am positive you all despise child molestation as much as I do. I’m gathering more info in the interim. I’m only asking that you respect my process in dealing with this news. I just need a little time. Then get ready- cause next episode I’m going all the way IN!! Love ya, miss ya- later bookworms.
