Almost two years ago, I wrote a 4 part series on domestic violence. I wish I could say that the violence has diminished since then, but it hasn’t. I want to run that series again, so that hopefully others who need the information will have it. Victims of domestic violence can be women or men, of all ages, all races, and all economic and educational levels. We think of abuse as being physical, but it can also take other forms, such as emotional, verbal, and sexual. The scars don’t always show on the outside. Being loved by someone should not be painful!
If you know anyone who might be suffering abuse from a loved one right now, please find a safe way to share these articles with them. Here are the links to all 4 parts of the series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. This violence can be inter-generational. The children who live in violent homes are learning very dangerous lessons which can impact their lives for many years to come, and these same lessons may some day be handed down to their children. It needs to stop! Please help spread the information.
No one deserves to be abused!
Until next time,
