by Petra Luna, Elected Leader of the War On Abuse Movement
Why do we call it a “WAR” on abuse?  We call it a war because hundreds of thousands of victims are being sexually abused, injured, and killed everyday.  It is the only word that properly identifies a struggle of this magnitude.  It makes no difference to real advocates whether the abuse occurs in the home, at a playground, or within conflict countries.  Global genocide is genocide, regardless of where it takes place.
Even if we wanted to, we could not take the “war” aspect out of our cause.  There will always be powerful people in media and politics openly or secretly defending, and participating in, criminal acts and organized crime syndicates that abuse people.  Law enforcement and anti-abuse advocates like myself will always have our lives seriously threatened as we serve our Creator and save the victims of abuse and exploitation.  These criminals have multi-billion dollar enterprises to protect, and they do so by any means possible.  They will defend their interests violently if necessary.
The WAR ON ABUSE MOVEMENT is where we unite as advocates, activists and soldiers for our cause.  If we have to delve into history, religion, various societies, and cultures to find solutions and to reclaim human rights for the victims of abuse, then we shall do so.  We will not falter, we will not tire, and we will not fail.  This is our moral obligation to the casualties of these massacres and ourselves.  Please join us in this effort to make positive change in our world?

Petra Luna Biography 2016

Petra Luna is the artist who can make you laugh, cry, riot, and reflect, but most of all, she can make you think. As a performer, she commands her audiences effortlessly, and the scope of her talents is seemingly endless. Her voice is intoxicating and powerful. She sings in many languages, is an amazing dancer, can perform any musical style, refusing to limit her creative directions. One minute she can be screaming and rapping in a rage-filled frenzy, and the next can be delicately handling a gentle ballad. This artist loves humor and is full of surprises. Her loyal fans are always curious to see what her next move will be. The cause always closest to her heart has been fighting child sexual abuse and she incorporated this theme into the subject matter of her music, which appeared to be an amazing motivating factor for her listeners. In 2007, her fans started calling her the "Artist for the Abused," and it just stuck. Petra is a true "indy" artist. Major labels have approached her, but when they insisted on taking all of her song rights and sought to make her conform to commercial standards, she refused, and kept going to the beat of her own drummer. Today the major labels are crumbling, but Petra Luna remains well intact and true to her form and fans.

Petra Luna is of Spanish/Mexican mixed with Irish/English heritage. As a child, her older siblings raised her on the Classic 70s Rock and Disco. At six years old, she was producing live shows with her friends and performing them for an after-dinner, family activity. Bored and growing up in a small town in Illinois, Petra learned to sing in her car with her friends while "jamming" to 80s Techno Pop and Hair Bands. She never took music seriously until she met her long-time friend, Lori Barnes, who was assigned as her roommate at an Illinois State University dormitory. Lori, who loved music and aspired to be in the music industry herself, played her records and Petra naturally sang along. The next thing you know, Lori had Petra in her brother's garage band, singing on stage for the first time. The night of her first performance, Petra received a standing ovation. From then on, it was all about music. After forming a series of garage bands, she and Lori loaded up the truck and moved to Chicago. There, Petra first joined professional bands. She loved her first real singing jobs, performing Jazz, Dance, Gospel, Blues and Rap. She eventually graduated college with a Bachelor’s with Honors Degree in Vocal Performance and Audio Production/Engineering from Columbia College. Barnes also graduated and eventually landed a job at Warner Brothers Records in New York City.

1st CD release in 1995, a cover single of Janis Joplin's “Mercedes Benz” by Barbara O, on Bellephon Records Deutschland, produced by Adam Schairer of the 70s duo “Adam and Eve.”

After college, Petra decided that she needed to know more about the technical side of her trade, so she bought herself into a professional recording studio business with her then-partners, Roberto Roth and Hayssam Boumoujahed. In the studio, she worked as an audio engineer and writer, while starting to produce her own demo tapes of original music. Also, at that time, she became interested in helping others. She volunteered as musical director for the now nationally-known children's television show "The Happiness Club," and wrote a song for them about the homeless. Roth, being the first to record and develop Petra's studio voice, persuaded German Producer Adam Schairer to record and release her first dance single on the major European label Bellaphon. The single sold over 45,000+ units and received extensive airplay throughout Europe. Roth and his then-young family soon afterwards returned to his native country of Germany and Petra temporarily moved with them to record her first CD.  In Germany, Roth was able to build his resume and worked with Dieter Deirks, producer for the Scorpions, and Connie Plank, producer for the Eurythmics (Annie Lennox). He soon introduced Petra to other great producers who also recorded songs for her debut CD, like Peter B. Herrmann, who worked with Harold Faltermayer; Frank Farian, who produced the gold single and platinum album for Claudia Jung for EMI Records, and Izabel Varel for BMG Records; and production team Ray Clarke and Eric Del Mar on Warner Brothers, 2YX and Edel Records. When Petra returned to the US, she resumed her professional singing career and started making waves as a runway and print model in Chicago and New York. Her self titled debut CD “Petra Luna” was released on the American label, Novo Records. Soon after, she formed an all-girl singing/dancing group to promote the CD. They hit the touring trail in the 90s and became a wildly popular group in the American Midwest. One single off the CD titled, "You Used To Say," eventually became a hit in Southeast Asia.

2nd CD release in 1998, Titled “Whatever” by Luna P. on GEMA Records, went "GOLD" with 45,000+ units sold throughout Benelux, with extensive airplay in Europe.

Petra has always been a workaholic, which was a great distraction from the real problems in her life that were beginning to surface in negative ways. As the 90's came to a close, those problems finally caught up to Petra. She had been abused her entire life and never received proper treatment for it.  In 2000, she reported her then fiancé to the police for child abuse and was unable to break his own abusive grip on her. Depression and thoughts of suicide soon filled her days. When Petra finally found the strength to leave her fiancé behind, she decided that her life needed to change drastically. Reflecting on the fact that her debut CD had been filled with the pain and sorrow from abuse, she started to get angry and write songs for a second CD. Roberto Roth had moved to Los Angeles at this point and was working for Smooth Sounds Recording Studio in Van Nuys, California. Chicago native Jerry Jackson was the studio owner who had worked with The Staple Singers, The Temptations, Peabo Bryson, Dance Mania, Kayne West, Twister, Snoop Dog, Sting, La Face Records, Mary J. Blidge, The Marley Family and Spinderella from Salt & Pepper. Since Jackson agreed to produce her second CD,  Petra moved to California.  There she also had the opportunity to collaborate for this second CD, with writer and producer M Doc, whose resume included working with Madonna, C.C. Peniston, Michael Jackson, Maverick/Warner Brothers, A& M, Sony and Indasoul Records sponsored by Coke.  Things were looking up for Petra but all was not as it seemed in the 2000s.  She soon learned that running from her problems was not going to make them go away. Her sorrow and depression inevitably returned.

A year after she reached Los Angeles, Petra decided she could no longer live as an abuse victim. She met an amazingly talented therapist and dedicated her life to recovery. She dumped her last abusive boyfriend and completed her second CD she called "Empowerment." Inspired by the fact that she overcame her abuse, she felt she could inspire others to do the same and produced songs for this CD filled with the feelings she experienced on her journey to recovery. She went from survivor to "thriver!" She formed another singing/dancing group in 2003 and rocked the L.A. live circuit for three more years. A single from the CD called "Pero Lo Amo" (meaning "But I Love Him" in Spanish), hit #1 all genres, gaining her a nomination for best Hip Hop Song and Best Female Artist on the world's second largest internet radio network, KIAC, based in the US. She later placed other songs from the Empowerment CD in Independent Films and Public Service Announcements pertaining to her cause to fight domestic abuse.  Throughout the rest of her 8 years in Los Angeles, Petra was one of the most requested, top-paid, live singers in the city. She had a busy studio session schedule and had become a smash hit in the International community, with her multi-lingual abilities.

In 2008, Petra formed a non-profit organization to fight child abuse and had signed all the music publishing and proceeds from the sales of her upcoming new music, over to her new organization she named the P. Luna Foundation. Since Petra made the decision to dedicate her life to her Creator and her cause to fight cruelty abuse and inspired so many other people to join her, her advocacy fans have elected her by petition to be the leader of the world's largest anti-abuse Internet network called the “War On Abuse Movement.”  Today, the Movement, with its empire of web sites, receives approximately one million hits per year.

In 2009, Petra moved home to Illinois for one year to be with her aging parents.  While taking time out from big city life, Petra built the foundation of her new nonprofit organization and redesigned all of her own web sites.  In 2010, she moved back to California, but this time she moved to the city of San Francisco, to continue her career.  At that time, she also completed her newest CD releases.  Since her second CD “Empowerment” was focused on domestic violence, she dedicated her new releases to child sexual abuse and animal abuse.  Her musical tastes were varied in those years, so she recorded a two-part release.  The first release was an Extended Play short CD with Ballads, Easy Listening and Spiritual music called “Angels” that was released in 2010.  The second EP CD for her more hardcore fans who love her Rock/Rap material called “Angels of the Sword” was released on New Year’s Day 2012.  In 2009 she also decided that helping young people that were seeking advice from her about the music business was too hard to keep explaining so she wrote a book about it called “The Music Business and its Realities for Today’s New Musicians.” It was published as a soft copy and as an Ebook in August of 2011.

Since the P. Luna Foundation was founded in 2008, Petra had devoted her life to the newest aspect of her cause to help males who were victims of child abuse.  Her organization started a new grassroots campaign called Male Abuse Awareness Week every December 1st though the 8th, and a new web site for this effort at  This campaign is meant to address the crippling effects of past child abuse in males, and how those effects impact our society as a whole and the cycle of abuse as it is passed down from generation to generation.  The campaign held its first live fundraiser event in San Diego CA on Dec. 5, 2011.  Also that week, the charity released its first press release that was pickup by 5 national news outlets online.  In 2012, they held a red carpet event in Los Angeles and in 2013 they held an awareness concert in San Francisco’s Union Square.  The foundation continued for a few more years and its Twitter page is still followed by CNN, NPR and Barak Obama.  At the end of 2015, Petra dissolved the Nonprofit but the cause of Male Abuse Awareness lives on to this day.

In 2016, Petra joins the fight against sea mammals in captivity and continues her performing career.  At this point, she speaks English, Spanish and Italian, can sing in 10 different languages and decides to make breaking down cultural berries with World Music her next venture.

Petra Luna dreams of leaving a legacy that follows in the footsteps of artists like John Lennon and Marvin Gaye and be a musician who had a real message for humanity. Through all of her talents as musician, songwriter, artist, advocate, activist, she had become a legend in her cause. Keep watching this artist. She will never cease to amaze you.

Lyrics and Credits for the "At War" Collection. 


In Slavery

My name used to be Weici
And I used to laugh and dance and sing with my family
Now I’m chained to this machine
And they tell me that I never get to leave

I can’t make it alone
Taken so far from my home
14 hours of every single day
My childhood just slips away

My name is in slavery and I was taken from my home
I know I’ll bring the world down to its knees to notice me
But if you choose to ignore, 
Maybe the next child will be yours

My name used to be Effiom
And for a hundred dollars I was sold from my starving Mom
Now I’m forced to work every day
While I watch the other little boys at play

I work my fingers to the bone
I lost my will to go on
Eighteen hours of every single day
God end my pain without delay?

My name used to be Kassidy
With golden hair and big blue eyes, who loved to be me
Then the evil man forced me to go
Now I have to face what I don’t want to know

They pump poison in my veins
An empty shell of me, is all that remains
Many men pass through here every single day
They’ll use me up, and then throw me away

We Can Build Our Dreams

Love speaks in ways 
When words are cold and down
And don’t know what to say
Faith leads our way
When we are out of strength 
In times when we are lost and stray
We are moving mountains with 
The courage that we share
We are turning night into a day
With the hope beyond compare

We can build our dreams inside our hearts
We can show our love a thousand times
We can build a friendship stronger than the wind
That never falls apart
We can climb on mountains hand in hand
Sometimes we fall and stumble but we’ll stand
We can build a stairway to the stars and build a castle out of love
We can build our dreams together
We can build them all

I said a prayer
I spoke in words that only he could ever hear
And I shed some tears
For all the joys and blessings he has given all these years
We never asked for wealth and fame
We only need to reach our dreams
And we are here through thick and thin
We finally made it through the rain

The road is endless we see it from the distance
But if we listen to the whispers of our hearts
We can feel the nearness of the stars
A glimmer of glory, a splendid story

I Love You Jesus

I give you my life, I give you my all
Align myself with your will, Oh Lord
That as I obey you, I may be made whole
I give you my life and I give you my all

Live in me, live with me, Oh live through me
Let my life be full expression of love for Thee
Live in me, live with me, Oh live through me
Every heart beat means I love you dear Jesus

Every word that I say, everything that I do 
May it all be love driven, lovin’ only you
May my life be fruitful, bearing heavenly fruit
Giving glory and honor; joy to your heart

I give you my life, I give you my all
Praises and worship I give Oh Lord
Every breath that I take, every heart beat declares
I love you dear Jesus, I love you so much

Live in me; live with me; live through me
Every heart beat means I love you dear Jesus
I love you Jesus

Soy Un Ganador Solo Por Un Día

Si no gano hoy
Ya no estaré aquí
Lo mismo le ha pasado a mis amigos
Cuando no pueden correr más
Será este mi final?
Podrias tú darme un hogar?
Soy un galgo por fuera
Con un gran corazón por dentro

He corrido tantas veces
Soy un numero en la pista
Solo una victoria continúa
Simplemente una apuesta
Pero pronto quedare cojo
Y estaré fuera del juego
Seré simplemente un pero
Despues de mis dias de gloria

Estoy corriendo hacia la muerte
Por el precio de un tiquete
Mi vida esta en juego
Solamente por tu dinero
Dedícame un pensamiento
En esta apuesta sin sentimiento
Estas firmando el fin de mi vida
Seré ganador solo por un dia

Me encuentro aquí perdido
Viendo como arrastran a mi amigo
También he visto el arma
Y he escuchado dispararla
Quien me podrá salvar?
No dejen que me puedan llevar
Soy un galgo por afuera
Con un corazón por dentro

(Translation to English)
If I don't win today
I won't be here again
I've seen it happen to my friends
When their running days are done
Will it be over for me soon?
Can I come home with you?
I'm a greyhound on the outside
With a big heart on the inside

I've run so many times
Just a number on the lines
Just another winning streak
Just a gamble, at my peak
But soon I will be lame
I'll be out of this sad game
I'm a dog like any other
When my glory days are over

And I'm racing to death
For the price of a bet
My life is at stake
For the money you make
So spare me a thought
On that ticket you bought
It's signing my life away
I'm just a winner for a day

So here I am I'm lost
I've seen the gun, I heard the shot
I saw my friend old Billy Jack
I saw them drag him on his back
I don't know who is gonna save me
Please don't let them take me
I'm a greyhound on the outside
With a big heart on the inside

Christmas Will Come Featuring Al Boyde

Not every child feels Christmas joy
Not every child gets gifts or toys
Not every child’s wishes come true
Not every child will see the Santa Clause revue

But every child will have their day
When everything will go their way
And everything will be OK
When they walk out and take the center stage

Christmas will come, to those who believe
Their gifts will be, under the Christmas tree
Christmas will come to those who need the most
The world will give a toast to those who follow their shining star

One day love will come save the world
Rescue little boys and girls 
Answer all their hopes and prayers
Light up the dark that makes them scared

One day love will bring peace on earth
Cure the afflicted, and heal the hurt 
So no matter what your life may bring
Don’t give up on all your hopes and dreams

Lucky Star (A Hymn)

Oh sweet, sweet Jesus, I love the way you are

Fight Them All featuring Doshermanos

She’s expediting her rage coming out of her cage 
Extricating her condition with the cut of this blade 
She’s not fucking around, she’s bringing on the plight
Of her brand Daddy coming in her room every night 
And her mamma know so now she’s killing a bitch
She’s only 9 years old, she can’t wake up from this shit
Have I offended someone?  Well that’s just too fucking bad
Go on and wish I were dead, put a price on my head, because

I ‘m going after all of you suckers
You twisted pedophile mother fuckers
No we don’t have the right to remain silent
Yes we do have the right to become violent
I’m breaking down closed doors, this is war can’t ignore 
This shit’s going down like I told you before, see
They have no right to defile a child they're making me wild
I’d like to fucking fight them all

Now let’s see about Momma, who fails to protect 
From this psycho obsessed, may I please interject?
She’s not plotting escape, she’s pimping out her daughter
Keeps his money, her mouth shut and observes the slaughter
Accessory to the crime, she’s just no better then him 
My conscience won’t remain still, they have to pay for this sin
She says she’s frightened of him, they should be frightened of me
My destiny is to expose their sorry asses to be, because  

Mamma don’t let baby have these dreams
Put Daddy on lockdown hear her screams
Mamma please make baby number one

I’m Fat So What Featuring Da Ster

My momma says I’m sexy, I’m pretty and I’m sassy
She rather see me fat, than seein' me so skinny
I weigh 200 pounds, as horrible as it sounds
But I need to love my size so that I never agonize

I’m fat! hu hu, I’m fat! I’m fat so what! 
hu hu huuuuuuuu
I’m fat! hu hu, I’m fat! I’m fat so what! 
hu hu huuuuuuuu

I used to fantasize one day I’d be like Oprah Winfrey 
For years she’d been so bulgy, But look?  She’s so darn sexy
It’s just that she’s determined to lose weight and yes it happened
I wish I were as patient as her, I would be shaped much better
Check it out!
At least I’ve done my part for years I really tried to work it out (you did?)
Those pills and exercises oh they almost made me sick and tired 
My desperation has gone wild, I enrolled up in pilates 
Oh gee I did lose weight I dropped to a hundred ninety eight (wow)

Here I am, Even though may be a little big boned, it's very clear to see that you gotta goin' on
Big girl rock her, who's gonna stop her?  Make her better, like a check up from the doctor
Big hips, smooth steps, yeah get it girl.  Do the thing you do, when you rock the world
Lose weight or it keep it, make it no secret.  Fine as you are, “Da Ster” So to speak it

I admit sometimes I'm lazy and fat hangs up my belly
As long as I'm happy and I have my golden heart

War Hyped by Q Ball
I am calling all adults who were abused, 
Molested or raped as a children 
To come together now to defend today’s kids?
Come anonymously or come as yourself?
Together we outnumber the child predators
And now that we are committed to the fight, 
Our day of retribution is here

I was raped at 14, see that makes a bitch mean 
And I will not give up, cause I don’t give a fuck
Well they threaten to kill me, I’m already dead
With the visions of pedo-freaks tweaking my head
See, just one pedo-freak makes a thousand of me
No more taking the blame for these memories please?
No more killing ourselves from unbearable shame
Now we have declared war, dignity we reclaim

This is war, We’re gangsters for the kids
Millions of victims grow up to be soldiers
Millions of soldiers who can’t forget
This is war, Angels of the sward, we’re not takin’ shit
War, So bring that shit on bitch

Now no longer can pedo-freaks access our children 
Our line of defense, we just keep fucking building
The silence is broken, the army has spoken
Accept as a token the warnings we heed
That’s the mentality here, that’s the reality here
Just like M, did I hear some pedo wants to challenge me here?
See I have nothing to loose, so I have nothing to fear
With an army that’s ‘bout to hit 100,000 this year
I believe with everything I am this is my destiny
I believe, I believe that an army of angels is standing next to me
I believe the Lord will give us everything, everything we need
I believe, I believe that the hand of God will crush our enemies, ya!

On Fire 

Hell no 
Why you gotta kick the dog? 
Now I’m gonna have to come down there and kick your ass 
What kinda person has a whack attack 
On something that can’t talk and can never fight back

Hell no, so
Why you gotta kick the dog? 
Now I’m gonna have to do what I have got to do
You fight them beat them and treat them bad 
And all they’re trying to do is just hang with you DAMN!

It’s on, it’s on fire 
It’s on, it’s on fire
It’s on, it’s on fire
It’s on, it’s on fire

Hell no 
Why’d you have to kill the dog?  
Now I’m gonna have to come down there and deal with you 
The biggest coward of all is you 
Just what the hell were you trying to prove with that? 

Hell no, so
Animal cruelty is a reality people have got to see 
Where this is bound to lead 
If they beat the dog, they’ll soon beat the kids 
Now can we wait till it comes to this?

Skit by Michael T. and Cherish Ryans 


See that girl you can see that she’s been crying 
To keep up with the Jones’ she done, messed up her state of mind 
She had a good family she had a good life 
She could have been someone’s mother she, could have been someone’s wife 
But there she is selling her body on the street
Life in the hands of some smooth talking freaks 
Now days turn into night and night turns into days 
But I know and you know and she knows, it will always be that way cause

This is the last of your innocence
Where do we go from here?
Living in a world where only God can judge me
That’s my word, wash away my sins 
This is the last of the innocence
Where do we go from here?
Living in a world where only God can judge me
That’s my word wash away my sins Lord

Take a look at him?  Shooting that stuff up in his veins 
His mothers long gone but he still fells the pain 
He went off to war and he’s killed many men 
But now he’s all alone to answer for his sins 
He wants to die but the drugs keep him instead
Too many bad things just keep running through his head
He remembers his father lost his legs in Viet Nam
He couldn’t afford to buy a house but now he’s just bought the farm, Lord
They say that we’re no good and we believed it
They say that we’re no good and we believed it, Oh Lord
They say that we’re no good and we believed it
They say that we’re no good and we believed it, perceived it, achieved it baby

Check this out 
I’m in a crowded room but I still feel alone
My legs feel weak but I must be strong 
I see people smile but it just don’t seem real
I wished they’d just stop this masquerade and just tell me how they feel
Drinking away the pain and drugging away the sorrow
Right now I’m bout to leave but I’ll be back tomorrow cause
Hollywood life is nothing but frustration
I just can’t seem to shake this situation Lord

Written and Produced by Jerry Jackson 

Mama’s Hands 

Mama’s hands are the first to rock you 
The first to stroke your brow
Mama’s hands are the first to feed you 
And the first to show you how
But if Mama’s hands are the enemy
And you’re the child with no way out
Without a place to run, without a place to hide
What happens to you now?

Mama’s hands should wipe the tears away 
Not be the cause of why tears come
Mama’s hands should hold on tight to yours
Not burn them, make them numb
See Mama’s hands should be gentle
Give tender loving care 
But if Mama’s hands are filled with rage
Don’t breathe, no don’t you dare 

No cradle is ever safe
No baby pictures ever taken
No concept of a mothers love
No matter what you do she is never pleased
No matter what you say, she’ll never be at ease
Hole in the soul, no love received
Oh shit! You only get one Mama

Mama’s hands should nurse the wounds away 
Not be the cause to scream in pain 
Mama’s hands should sooth and calm you 
But what if she’s insane?
So when you think of Mama’s hands
And what they should be for,
I weep and wonder, where was the love?
In the hands that locked that door
