Silent No More

by Aaron Fisher, Silent No More Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Silent No More books, Victim 1, at fourteen years of age, spoke up against Jerry Sandusky in the Penn State scandal, and now for the first time tells his story. Aaron Fisher was an eager and spirited eleven-year-old when legendary Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky recruited him into his Second Mile children’s charity. Offering support at a critical time in Aaron’s life, Sandusky gave him gifts and attention, winning the boy’s trust even as he isolated him from his family and peers. Before long, Sandusky’s attention escalated into sexual assault. When Aaron summoned the courage to speak up, he found himself ostracized and harassed by the very people who were supposed to protect him. The investigation set off by his coming forward would drag on for three years—and would launch the biggest scandal in the history of sports. In Silent No More, Aaron Fisher recounts his harrowing quest to bring Sandusky’s crimes to light—from the intense feelings of guilt that kept him from speaking up earlier and the fear he felt at accusing a man who was a pillar of the community and a hero to the largest alumni network in the world, to the infuriating delays in the arrest and conviction of his abuser. He catalogs the devastating personal toll the case took on him: the shattered relationships, panic attacks, and betrayal of trust that continued to haunt him even after the charges went public in the fall of 2011. But he also speaks of his mother’s desperate efforts to get him out of harm’s way, the invaluable help of psychologist Michael Gillum, and the vindication he felt at inspiring numerous other victims to step forward . . . and at knowing that, thanks to him, there would be no future victims of Jerry Sandusky. In the end, Aaron Fisher won his fight to expose the truth, achieving some measure of closure. Told in the honest and unforgettable voices of Aaron; his mother, Dawn; and his psychologist, Mike, this inspiring book completes Aaron’s transformation from a nameless casualty into a resounding voice for change.

by Michael A. Milton, Silent No More Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Silent No More books, Dr. Michael Milton is concerned about any diabolical power -political, cultural, or otherwise - that could hurt the souls of human beings or threaten the Church. This is not a call for the Church to become a political action committee, but a call to pastors and people to return to the Biblical model of a shepherd guarding the sheep against any and all attacks which would hurt the flock. To speak, to write, to preach or to witness against the powers that oppose Christ and His Kingdom is a pastoral act of protection that follows in the footsteps of the prophets, the apostles, the martyrs of the Church, the Reformers, and, as is shown so often in the Bible, Christ Himself.

Belfast in the 1970s was a rough place, and it changed the way she saw the world forever. Silent No More offers an authentic account of the life of a working-class Belfast woman, following Waites from her earliest beginnings through middle age and on to her years as a grandmother. She shares how and why she survived the turmoil that marred her early life, dealing her abusive father and living through the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Her marriage to a sadistic, manipulative man brought further problems for her and her children, having lasting effects on their relationships. She began writing for her children, now adults, to help them understand what her history had been like from her perspective, and now she hopes her story may help others in similar circumstances who feel helpless and alone. The memoir presents the life story of a woman who lived through a violent and turbulent time in the midst of an abusive upbringing and yet found peace and triumph in her own way.

Silent No More

by Henry L. Feingold, Silent No More Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Silent No More books, Leading scholar and author of the celebrated five-volume series, The Jewish People in America, Henry L. Feingold offers a fresh and inspiring look at the Russian/Soviet Jewish emigration phenomenon. Haunted by its sense of failure during the Holocaust, the Soviet Jewry movement set for itself an almost unrealizable goal of finding sanctuary for Jews from a hostile Soviet government. Working together with activists in Israel and Europe, and with a remarkable group of refuseniks that had been denied the right to emigrate, this courageous group mounted a relentless campaign lasting almost three decades. Although Feingold credits Israel with initiating the struggle for Soviet Jewry and fostering it within American Jewry, he maintains that it was the actions of a secure and confident American Jewry that finally delivered the Jews from the Soviet Union. Feingold’s mastery of detail and broadness of scope provide a prodigious and sweeping account of the American Jewish movement. He finds early roots of the effort in the American Jewish involvement with Jewish emigration in late Tsarist Russia. He highlights both the human dimension of the exodus and the complex international ramifications of the movement, especially in the Middle East. "Silent No More" concludes by pondering the role of the movement’s effective public relations campaign, which focused on the human right of freedom of movement in hastening the collapse of the Soviet empire. Feingold’s rigorous scholarship sheds light on an important, yet rarely told episode in history, one that will enliven further examination of the subject. This book will be of interest to scholars of American Jewish history, the cold war, Israeli studies, and American ethnic and immigration history.
