Mommy, Please Read This: The Facts about Child Sexual Abuse. Written by Troy D. Timmons, Sexual Abuse Therapist
Extended opening – The show opens with the powerful Aerosmith song "Janie's Got a Gun." about a young girl being sexually abused by her father.
Tyler Perry on why he wrote the song:
Tyler found inspiration for the lyrics after reading two articles – a TIME magazine story on gun violence in the US and a Newsweek piece about child abuse; he connected the song with the theme of child abuse and incest. The singer declared that "I got really angry that nobody was paying homage to those who Mom and Dad abused" FYI – please excuse a technical glitch halfway through the show.
