Shattered Lives: Antoinette Bosco on Forgiveness of a Murderer

SHATTERED LIVES with Donna R. Gore, “LadyJustice” Examining the effects of those who have survived violent crime and how it has impacted their lives. Real people, real tragedy, real help. Saturdays at 5pm ET Listen LIVE or podcast:  CLICK HERE Journalist and author, Antoinette “Toni” Bosco, lost one of her seven children to suicide, and as she was still grieving his loss, another was lost to murder. For someone who did not believe in the death penalty, it was difficult to contain the anger and rage, and she, at that point, could have killed the murderer with her bare hands. Wrestling with her own feelings, Toni Bosco came to question her own values about life and death. Who had the right to take the life of another human being? The state? As she came to her own conclusions, she realized that the state is no more justified in taking a life than is an individual. Toni Bosco became an advocate for the abolition of the death penalty, and subsequently forgiving the murderer of her son and daughter in law. In …

Lisa Bloom: THINK: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World

THINK: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World Lisa Bloom Attorney and National Television Legal Analyst In just one generation, how did women become so smart and yet so ditzy? Acclaimed national television legal analyst Lisa Bloom confronts the disturbing paradox of 21st-century womanhood and its dire consequences in her new book, THINK: Straight Talk for Women to Stay Smart in a Dumbed-Down World (Vanguard Press; June 1, 2011; ISBN: 978-1-59315-659-6; $25.99; Hardcover). Backed by extensive research, Bloom indicts the tabloid media and society’s focus on beauty over substance for turning millions of intelligent American females into glitz-, glam-, and gossip-obsessed narcissists who are, to quote the author, “dazzlingly ignorant about some critically important things.” Without sugarcoating the facts, Lisa Bloom reveals how women’s distraction from critical issues and critical thinking is detrimental to not only themselves. By wasting their minds on trivial nonsense, women are hurting countless women and girls—victims of oppression, poverty, violence, and injustice—around the world and close to home, too. Among many critically important things, THINK compels women to …
