Domestic Violence Awareness began yesterday Oct. 1st and is the whole month of October! Many are blogging about it. My friend, Laura Young, has info on a murder resulting from domestic violence http://www.typepad.com/t/trackback/6113568
I live in Baltimore, MD and there was a case of a husband whose wife had fruitlessly gone before the court to get a restraining order…Her husband went to her work, doused his estranged wife with gasoline and lit her on fire! The judge deeply regretted this & took early retirement amidst applause! She had 3rd degree burns, painful operations and countless emotional & physical scars!
At the Book Festival this past weekend, I spoke with many abused women-some still reeling from their relationship & the rage they’d endured. Others stayed in that situation-planning to get out someday… Others were in homes protecting their children from the violence that existed at home. I’m a Transition & Career Coach & unfortunately, I hear it all the time…
Oct. is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, shouldn’t it be year-round?
