Living with the Impacts of Terrorism (w/ Ann Travers)

Join me Thursday, March 30/23 at 1pm on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel!

The most personal and gripping episode I’ve ever done.

We plan for various crises and disasters, making plans to prepare and respond to such things as terrorism, but what we often forget are those that have been impacted terrorism. In the most personally gripping and heartfelt episode I’ve ever done, I’m joined by terrorism survivor and victim advocate, Ann Travers.

Ann talks about her experiences of growing up in Northern Ireland during the Troubles and how it impacted – and still impacts – her today.

1. Defining terrorism, living in fear, The Troubles;

2. Ann’s personal story of terrorism, the hurt, survival and lingering impacts;

3. Ann’s Law, victim’s rights, re-traumatization, and support.

It’s an episode that raises the question of why we prepare and respond to disasters, but we seem to fall short when it comes to caring for those living with the impacts of terrorism…or any disaster.

Don’t miss this episode! If you are a survivor of terrorism and want to talk to someone, you can find help at www.seff.org.uk

How Do We Cope With Hate Crimes? Three Considerations by Dr. Suzanne B. Phillips

A road sign against Hate


Hate crimes like the massacre that killed and injured so many in Orlando, Florida are further fueled by terrorism and are meant to instill fear and helplessness. They impact everyone, particularly those who have suffered, those who identify with them and those who love and respect them. At the worst, hate crimes isolate, denigrate, fuel more hate and steal hope. This blog proposes that Compassion, Connection and Hope serve to reduce the loss, isolation, terror, and despair.

The Brotherhood of the Red Nile On The American Heroes Network


Tune in on The American Heroes Network for their new episode “The Brotherhood of the Red Nile” with guest Dan Perkins who is author and master storyteller who presents the second book in his trilogy about terrorism against the United States.

Walking into a creative writing class at the BIG Arts Center on Sanibel Island in November 2011, Dan Perkins had no idea how dramatic of a turn his life would take after the four week class. The instructor, Nancy Daversa, started by telling the students they would know within the first two weeks if they could write. Dan smiled to himself thinking he would only miss a couple of rounds of golf.

But the writing bug bit Dan Perkins and he found, not only can he write, but he can write fast and with a vengeance. His first story blossomed into a full length novel that he completed in 90 days. The Brotherhood of the Red Nile, A Terrorist Perspective, would go on to be the fourth book by one of Nancy Daversa’s students in as many sessions of teaching. Dan’s first book was published in December, 2012, barely a year after taking the course.

One reviewer said, “This book is as current as today’s headlines, but scarier than tomorrow’s.” Filled with twists and turns, it offers a surprise at every intersection as readers will no doubt wonder “Where did that come from?”

It has been said that we are only a generation away from forgetting our history. Disabled American Veterans struggle every day to overcome life-changing sacrifices. Their stories provides a vital part of history that has contributed to our American tradition. American Heroes Network provides a way for individuals, corporations and small businesses to support our Heroes by helping our veterans and their families rebuild their lives. They help aim our veterans, looking for jobs, in the right direction, help provide homes for our troops, assisting individuals and their families who have been severely injured while serving in the U.S. military and providing scholarships for families of our Fallen Heroes. This will be a weekly hour long show joined by our military heroes and people and organizations that make a difference. American Heroes Network airs live Tuesdays at 8 AM Pacific, powered by Voice America Variety.
