I lived this for 23 years! We need the help to escape this violence, it leaves us with very deep scars that never ever go away. It strips us of our self worth, our dignity, self confidence.... it can become a very dark world for women when they think they have no where to go let alone anyone that they can trust and depend on.
Please join me in signing this petition.
There is an excellent website that is a global list of resources and shelters for domestic abuse.
Please distribute this website, so that those you may need it get access..
These men are so charismatic. They need to be recognized and not believed when they turn on the women and say that they are crazy. They need to be healed. Their charm is killing us.
They are the scum of the earth.stop now
I kived that kind of life when I was young and I didn`t know I could get out! No one should be abused, any time, never should happen.
Unless you have been abused, you do not realize how hard it is to walk away...people need somewhere to go! It is the only lifeline to pull your way out of the vicious circle. A victim MUST feel as safe as they can because it is the insane fear that makes you stay. To anyone struggling with that decision... Leave! The fear does pass...and life begins.
I I grabbed her foot when she kicked me and she fell down. I had bruises all over me, but she had a bruise on her back from when she fell. I was told if I was to fight it I would be in jail for a minimum of 3 months, but if I plead guilty to a plea agreement I would get out that day (30 days). I feel for the women that are truly in an abusive relationship, but it's bull shit when a woman can cry wolf and have an innocent man put in jail.
Its awful what someone can do to somebody they say they love. Ive seen it with my own eyes when I was younger and have never forgotten what it did to that women and her beautiful children.
In terms of participating in advocacy, this type of advocacy would be at the top of the list. Your support and help is needed by signing the petition. We must let our legislators know how we feel about violence against women. In gratitude Diane L. Taylor
