There are so many of us, so many. I believe the more we talk about it, the easier it will be for people to hear, the easier it is for people to hear, the more likely we are to really get something done about it.
There are so many victims, and the overlap between victims and abusers, though present as abuser seeks victim after victim, isn’t vast. There are so many surviving abuse not because there are a select few abusers traveling the world terrorizing victims, but because there are so many abusers around the world seeking the pleasure of power by dominating a victim.
Domestic Violence Awareness covers so much. It’s making society aware it happens. It’s making victims aware they are not alone. It’s making abusers aware they can’t hide behind closed-doors any more. The silence has ended.
There are writers writing about abuse in its various forms and bringing awareness every day:
- A New Free Life
- Behind The Mask of Abuse
- Fish of Gold
- I’m Still Me, Only Stronger
- I Survived a Murder Attack, My Family Didn’t
- I Won’t Take It
- Knocked Over By a Feather
- Lady With a Truck
- Looking Forward
- Married To an Alcoholic
- Paula’s Pontifications
