Soledad O'Brien (CNN News Anchor and Broadcast Journalist): The numbers of women and girls who are abused at home, on the streets, and in the line of duty in the military serving our country is staggering, it's unconscionable. I want to take a moment to share some statistics with you. 19,000 women veterans have been victims of military sexual abuse in just the past year. Over 100,000 girls under the age of 17 are said to be victims of prostitution in America alone. And the number of women and girls who are raped and tortured and killed in war torn areas is literally beyond estimation and beyond comprehension.
I applaud all the good works of all the private organizations and governmental agencies that are dedicated to addressing the plight of these women and these girls who suffer such unimaginable wrongs. At the same time I am speaking today in support of the good works of the David Lynch Foundation because it provides something that's missing in the lives of women and girls - a tool to help them, in their own terms, overcome and heal those terrible traumas and abuse that can grip their lives. That tool is meditation.
I learned Transcendental Meditation several months ago at the recommendation of my friend Russell Simmons and of course I really didn't think I could do it. If you know me at all you know I have a crazy schedule, I have four small children, I am always going. So the idea of calming my mind... I thought, "not possible." But I was able to learn it. I was able to do it and I appreciate the opportunity to take the time to focus and meditate and it allows me to experience a state of deep rest and relaxation that can be game-changing and sometimes a life saver in a crazy world. It helps alleviate stress and pressure if you're trying to balance life as a wife and a mother and as a journalist. I feel healthier, have fewer stressful days, and have more energy and more clarity of mind. So that's all literally my own personal experience and that's why I'm speaking today in support of Transcendental Meditation.
