No Excuse, Stop Abuse




October 1st, kicked off the start of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Around the world Businesses, Universities, Non-profit Organizations, Churches, and Local Communities are sponsoring walks and workshops to raise awareness about Domestic Violence. Domestic Abuse has taken loved ones from us far too soon. Raising awareness about the signs of domestic abuse and what can be done to help women is the main focus. Domestic Violence has to be STOPPED. We all need to stop looking at the situation like it is none of our business and help other’s that are in these dilemmas, we should not be so quick to judge. Just think about it, it could be your mother, aunt, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, goddaughter, niece, grandmother, and/or YOU. Yes, even our grandmothers are victims of domestic violence. We need to listen to their silent cries for help. Abusers need to know that Domestic Abuse will no longer be tolerated nor accepted. Domestic Violence has ruined or prematurely taken too many lives of women around the world and we need to SPEAK UP and SPEAK OUT that we will no longer stand for DOMESTIC ABUSE. We need to be a VOICE for the victim. It is up to us to use our VOICE and RESOURCES to help victims who are silently suffering from abuse. 


SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT, WE WILL NO LONGER TOLERATE NOR EXCEPT DOMESTIC ABUSE
