Bread for the Journey R A D I O presents: A Heart-Opening Story of Forgiveness Saturday, November 5 @ 9am Pacific Time VoiceAmerica Variety Channel:VoiceAmericaVariety.com
Carolyn Mosely has lived through every parent’s nightmare – the violent death of her child. Her youngest daughter Ortralla was stabbed in the hall of her high school by her ex-boyfriend. Just 15, “Trella’s” last words were words of forgiveness for her murderer.
Today, Carolyn is changing the landscape of teen dating violence in America for the better. Inspired by her child’s offering of forgiveness, she advocated for passage of Texas’ first Teen Dating Violence Act, which requires every high school to provide dating violence prevention education. She developed a curriculum promoting healthy relationships for use in all Texas Youth Commission’s halfway homes for juvenile offenders. Through her efforts, February is now designated as Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month. All this while working nights as a security officer and earning degrees in juvenile justice and criminal psychology. Each day, Carolyn asks, “What can I do to help a child?”
Tune in for a heart-opening story of forgiveness and love in action.
