"Open your Mind and Heart to Freedom"
The book ”Robbed of a Childhood, Raped by the System“ is an extraordinary read for anyone who has been raped, been prostituted, or just knows someone who this has happened to.
I give great credit to the author who is the victim in this book for sharing her story with the world. This book can enlighten anyone who ever wondered what happens to a child who has been raped, abused and been lost in the system. It goes to show that this kind of situation can happen right next door and you would not know it. Or maybe, someone does know about it and just looks the other way. This is how I felt this woman as a child was done. This book also shows a young girl/boy, women become victims in the slavery of prostitution. It also opens up the minds of how the mind of a ”pimp“ thinks, and I would recommend this book to be read by men...This book would be a great read for a book club. (Usually, just my opinion, a great read for a closed minded person). It also would be a great read for any institution working in child protection etc. I would hope this book will reach the eyes of Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, for I think it would make an extraordinary movie. I again, applaud the writer, author and victim of this book for she is a friend of mine. She shared some of her life with me, but I never heard it as it was told in the book. I cried throughout the book because I know her and it hurt me to know the pain and suffering she went through. But she is the women of today. I can say only God could have got her through all that she went through.

This book was an extremely difficult read. The idea that there are people in the world that have experienced such unimaginable pain is heart breaking. The only relief is knowing that the author is a remarkable woman, smart, strong, and forgiving. She is truly an inspiration.

Amelia-Chemical Dependency Director. This book is a must read for those that still have not found their voice. The individual that has secrets of her/his life due to sexual abuse, physical abuse as well as mental abuse need to know that they are understood and loved as any one of us. Sunny’s book talked frankly and honestly to those Adult survivors of child abuse as well as the professionals in the human service circle. She talks about her struggles and finally triumphs that there is life after pain. Sunny shows how she could not have explored the possibilities of reaching for the sky until she dealt with pain from past lives, without having first worked with the wounds she had buried deep inside. Hats off to a beautiful spirit of a woman that is making a difference for those that still have not found their voice.
During one of Sunny's workshops I really enjoyed the fact that none of the young men were on their phones texting, face booking, twittering, etc. For me, this was a first because I have been in many classes in my undergraduate career and not only have they been texting but they rarely if ever pay attention to who is presenting. There was one man who approached Sunny and shared that he was ashamed of the way he had talked to his own wife. He said he would never curse his wife again after hearing her captivating speech. As I watched one after another approaching her
and sharing their thoughts I was amazed at how much a stranger could move them
to feel free to share their own stories. Thanks for sharing your powerful presentation, it has changed my way of viewing my life.
