Episode 3 – “Trust No One” Featuring Cerridwen Fallingstar and Denise Martin

Jan 18, 2012 marked the 3rd episode of The Hands Off Our Children show, hosted by Cogee. Hear reports You Won’t Believe! Co-hosting with Cogee is the lovely Miss Peaches and Elsa! Cerridwen Fallingstar and Erma joined the conversation with their experiences making a point that it is ok for children not to want to give “hugs.” Their bodies belong to them, they must embrace this fact at an early age. If they are uneasy about getting close to anyone, whether it be family, friend, teacher, pastor, doctor, uncle, their own father or even mother, it may be for a good reason!

Denise Martin joined in on the 2nd hour with her point of view on living in a homeless shelter and “safety in numbers.”  Cogee and the Hands Off team reiterated the “trust no one” rule, and that child abuse can happen faster than we think! It was agreed that pedophilia happens within our own homes with close relatives but it can happen anywhere. It is important not to ignore our instincts or overlook what may be happening right before our very eyes!

Episode 4 – Hands Off Our Children Feat. Marvin Columbus, Stacy Bailey, & Patrina Wright

January 25,2012 marked the 4th episode of the Hands Off Our Children Radio Show featuring Marvin Columbus, Stacy Baily and Patrina Wright.
Marvin Columbus took a few students from a local high school, each facing many challenges, and introduced them to boxing.  Immediately it became apparent that this simple boxing program had tapped into a wellspring of potential in these kids.  Marvin realized that this boxing program could expand and help more and more students.  Recognizing the students’ desire to learn and grow into responsible young adults, he decided to form a boxing league for high school-aged students, KO HIGH.
This is where Marvin and KO HIGH come in.  The KO HIGH program is giving these students options, a sense of pride and a passion to want to do better, not only in boxing but also in school and in life.  Time is endless where Marvin is concerned.  He spreads his knowledge of boxing and is the students’ hands-on trainer and mentor.
Participation in KO HIGH has been and remains subject to steadfast criteria:  grades have to be either maintained or brought up to at least a 2.5; proper social conduct has to be adhered to at all times and there is a strict “dress for success” dress code.
Marvin’s two main goals for the KO HIGH program is for kids to finish high school and for this sport to be in college.

Stacy Bailey, a survivor of sexual, mental and emotional abuse while in an adopted home. She is Author of “The Awakening: A Story of Twisted Fate,” which is a fictional depiction of her childhood abuse. This novel was written as a means to bring awareness to child abuse and to inspire others to share their story.  Available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com

Patrina wrote “The Exodus: Breaking Cycles and Changing Lives,”  to help survivors thrive, help them know they can prosper, and teach them how to take the rest of their lives back! They can live again, laugh again and breathe again!

Among the male survivors, 50% have suicidal thoughts, more than 20% attempt suicide.  Young girls who are sexually abused are more likely to develop eating disorders, they run away from home, have unhealthy lifestyle patterns.  More than 60% of first time pregnancy of teens are a result of molestation, rape or attempted rape.
