October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Domestic Violence shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you don’t think you could ever become a victim – Think again! Who can be a potential victim, you may wonder?

 

Your family member

A neighbor

A close friend

The single mother
A married woman

The strong and independent woman

Your child

 

and

 

YOU!

    I would like to say a big thank you for publishing this blog and highlighting the needs to put a stop to domestic violence.

    Hello Helen — thank you for the comment. I appreciate it. Yes, it is so important people know the importance of this issue. The silence of domestic violence can exist for so long as the person continues to endure the violence. And that’s the sad part.

    Thank you so much, Tinisha for posting this important information.
    I wrote the song, “Break the Silence – Stop the Violence” after fleeing
    an abusive marriage with my two young children in tow.
    Had so much trouble finding information at the time on what
    to do next. My fear was almost paralyzing.
    Thankfully, there were a few trusted people who provided safe guidance.
    My mission is to fully educate others.
    If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone.
    PEACE
    Please Educate All Children Everywhere
    One love,

    Hi there
    Like Helen, I would like to say Thank You for doing this blog.
    I myself am a domestic violence survivor, and just lost a cousin to domestic violence last month. We need to get the word out there, there are so many people that don’t know about October being awareness month for Domestic Violence. Thank You again for having this.

    Hello Helen, I’m so sorry to hear that. That is really terrible. More people do need to be aware, like you said. If you missed the show, you can catch up on the archived show by going here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ASA-Blog-Talk
