In his new book, Millennial Orphan, author Levi Gideon Shepherd tells the real-life story of his riveting past of abuse, childhood struggles and the darkness that comes from hopelessness when he believed that no one cared about him.
With an absentee father and a deceased mother, Shepherd knows firsthand what it's like to be an orphan growing up in the broken foster system in the United States. At the age of 17, he suffered a life-threatening illness and after years of brokenness, abuse and wanting to belong, he joined a gang.

ABC's new comedy "The Real O'Neals," which promises viewers a show about a family that "stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real," is deceiving viewers with its PG rating, according to the Parents Television Council.
The cheeky, no-holds-barred comedy, which makes fun of subjects ranging from pedophilia to divorce to contract killing and eating disorders, was recently praised by ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee as being " … full of family and faith and joy and humor." But not everyone is laughing.
PTC President Tim Winter says the show's over-the-top content exceeds the boundaries of its PG rating and is calling for the FCC and Congress to overhaul the TV Content Ratings System. more >>
