#NOMORE The "Security" of Domestic Violence... (Connie J...)
I've been doing a LOT of thinking this week. My brain keeps circling back to this thought:
Is Domestic Violence Awareness enough?
Domestic Violence has been around for thousands of year... people are AWARE it
But how can we get people (both men AND women) to value human life enough to make a difference?
Knowledge IS power...but having a plug for a vacuum laying next to the outlet, or thinking about plugging it in will NEVER get your
People stay in, and allow violent relationships to continue, because, most of the time, they're so worn down, it's the lesser of two evils. At least they know what their future holds if they stay. If they leave their "comfort zone", what
will their life be like? Will it be better? In some ways yes, in some ways no. Therefore, they stay, and it continues "situation normal". The security of Domestic Violence...wow.
Do you have any ideas how to change this? I'm stumped, believe me...
