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:  CLICK HERE   How do children handle crisis and chaos in their lives? Whether within the confines of a dysfunctional family, or in the context of a public, traumatic event, children  must be taught how to process the information and their feelings about it if they are going to be able to function normally.

Susan Murphy Milano, Lisa Michels and Lavinia Masters Appear Together on the Susan Murphy Milano Show

It was a hot July night in 1985, and the Texas sixth-grader Lavina Masters had been sexually assaulted by an unknown suspect. This process — collecting evidence for a rape kit — lasted several hours was “devastating.” But just as difficult, says Masters, was the 20-year wait for that evidence to yield results. Lavina discussed in a recent interview with CNN how her rape kit sat idle until 2005, when the Dallas Police Department re-opened her case, as part of a new initiative to solve old crimes. Please join us for a very special hour with Author and national safety prevention expert Lavinia Masters. And Lisa Fiorese Michels a board member with Project Meridian.org and a noted speaker on “Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome” and educating those whom often feel shame and embarrassment when the crime of rape is committed against them.
