MCS Radio Show – Saturday, April 29th, 2017

Hello,

We closed out the month April by recognizing it as National Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month.  Sadly, we focused on the local story of 16 month old toddler, Semaj Crosby, who was reported missing and was later found deceased in her own home.

Community activist, producer, and songwriter, Steve Broadway, joined me in-studio for the first hour of the show to share what he saw and experienced while on location during the 3-4 day ordeal.  Here’s how the show flowed…

Cafe Talk:  What are you doing to prevent and raise awareness about child abuse and neglect?

First Hour  – Top News

The Good—A government shut down has been delayed another week.

The Bad—Conflict between North Korea and United States moves from a simmer to brew.

The Ugly—Sixteen month old Semaj Crosby found dead.

After reporting on the Semaj Crosby story with Steve, I shared stats on children who are abused and neglected in the United States.  I also reminded listeners about what exactly child abuse is and the different forms of abuse.  Click here for the audio.

Cafe Talk:  What’s your favorite dance, past or present?

Second Hour –  Child Abuse and Neglect report continued/Entertainment News

In this hour, I continued talk on Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness by sharing five (5) strategies to implement help.  And ended the hour with latest DWTS update and announced the Windy City Live (on ABC 7 Chicago) contest.   Go to https://www.marilynscafesociety.com/mcs_radio_show for more information.  Soul will return next Saturday with another edition of Soulbalm Says.
