A local business man has written a memoir exploring the abuse and neglect he experienced as a child. John Love is now the president of a local car dealership, but the road to success was long and painful. In "You Failed Me," Love shares how he grew up in poverty with a neglectful mother and a violent step-father, how he became homeless as a young teenager, and how most of the adults in his life either missed or turned a blind eye to the trauma he endured.

Love joins us to discuss his book and how he hopes to use his experience to create better outcomes for children in similar circumstances. Our guest:
