Former heavyweight champion boxer, Mike Tyson, recently shared the news he was sexually abused as a child. Tyson, who has been on a road to recovery, after years of being exploited by former members of his team during their height of his boxing career, spoke to the Opie Show Sirius XM and stated, "He snatched me off the street. He bullied me, sexually abused me and stuff. Never seen him again."

That must be a very difficult memory for him. Talking about traumas can help in spurring the healing process. So can prayer and therapy. It's amazing how you can look at a person and not truly know their story or their pain.
