So many times, the perpetrator of Domestic Violence gets all the publicity. I DO understand, and take "Victim's Rights", into consideration - but the Victim does have a name, and IS remembered by Family and Friends - whether they are able to make the
transition from Victim to Survivor, or not. (I am also well aware that men can be Victims - but this is not the place for that, today.)
While researching, I was amazed at how many of the handful of people I surveyed, that could NOT think of ONE
person that was a Victim of Domestic Violence - and at least one of the people they knew, was themselves!!! (One person actually said, "My Mother dealt with my narcissistic father, for years.")
Many times, the children don't realize they, too,
are "Victims" - but have issues, as a result of growing up in the home with the Violence.
I am listing, below, names of Victims and Survivors. I will leave space for you to mentally add your own. (*symbolizes deceased)
