Finding My Voice - Matt Morgan's Story
At the age of 44 years old I was repeatedly awakened by nightmares. I told my wife I haven’t had this dream since I was a kid. It became completely debilitating in a short amount of time. I really thought I was going crazy. With the help of my family, I found myself in a rehab center. You see, addiction was part of my story. There, I worked through some intense therapy and I learned that these dreams were actual memories from my childhood. I could no longer deny what had happened to me.

Murder Victim’s Children Still Seeking Justice
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter was authored by Michelle Liles, daughter of Debbie Liles who was found brutally beaten and murdered in her Jacksonville home in March 2017. Her father, Michael Liles, was the executive director of the Justice Coalition, a Jacksonville nonprofit victims’ services center. Already a victim advocate before Debbie’s tragic death, Michael channeled his grief and heartbreak into his quest to find justice for Debbie and his fierce advocacy of Amendment 6/Marsy’s Law for Florida. Several weeks ago, Michael unexpectedly passed away.
