Contact us at any time .. and for any reason. But get involved. There's much work to be done, both on our own recovery issues and helping others. We've a series of tools you can use to stay in touch with us (and each other). Too few recovery groups exist around the country, and too little is being done to serve the survivor community and the kids who suffer daily at the hands of abusers. We'll want to help you with both these issues, as together we seek our happy destiny.

Check out and join our Facebook groups !!! --> NAASCA on Facebook
PLEASE join our cause and add it to your Facebook profile. Every contact counts !!

The National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse simply takes advantage of our founder's personal experience to further his basic opinion that those of us who are in the grassroots survivor community should make whatever actions we can, in time, energy, talents and money, to help those who are weaker, innocent or victimized, namely our kids.

Please .. help us help them ..

We've become an 501(c)3 public charity which allows an organization a way to raising money for its efforts. We ask you to consider supporting us with tax deductible contributions -- > CLICK HERE.

Take the time to study our Recovery / Resource pages. Learn how you can participate. Sign up and show up for them.

We also hope you'll follow us on our Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) talk radio shows, and sign up below for our various projects.

Lastly, feel free to write us with your ideas ..

What I'll do ..

Bill Murray - turning what he once thought of as the worst thing about him into the gift he has to offer
  I'm willing to travel anywhere in the country to speak to groups about my experiences, and more importantly of my recovery. I want to educate the public about the issues of child abuse, and will happily offer to honestly answer and all questions.

Media and individuals should feel free to contact me at the email address you'll find below (please add NAASCA to the subject line). We'd love to know what you think of our efforts, and your comments will help guide us as we grow.

Some of our ideas for how to engage our interested followers in the future is to produce the following:

Newsletter - monthly - (please join the NAASCA newsletter list)

Facebook-groups - for ongoing communication and sharing (please join any / all groups you wish)

Video Blog - a popular method of getting a message out (just click here)

Talk Radio Show - "Stop Child Abuse Now" episodes dedicated to issues of child abuse

Personal appearances / Media interviews - willing to go anywhere in the country

We've been doing regular radio talk shows over the Internet for the last ten years.

Now we do five shows each week (Mon - Fri). The Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) shows are 90 mins long, always at 8pm EST (so 5pm PAC). Every live show includes call-in participation and a chat room. The're recorded as they air, and are available later for "on demand" listening.

As I noted elsewhere on this site, there are very few of us who have had extended recovery after surviving severe child abuse, kidnapping and child pornography (well over 35 years of recovery in my case).

If I can help one child avoid what I went through, or one family avoid what my family experienced, it'll be worth spending the rest of my life serving the community of the Abused.

Yours in service,

Bill Murray

PS: Here's a little something I think is worth sharing:

Regina Brett - The 45 lessons life taught me

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!!  It was written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, in Cleveland, Ohio.

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me," said Ms. Brett. "It is the most requested column I've ever written.
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more."

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

27. Always choose life.

28. Forgive everyone everything.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

42. The best is yet to come ...

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.


Forward this.  Friends are the family that we choose.
