We all need to wake up to the issue of domestic violence. It doesn’t just effect a certain segment of the population. It is not a race class or gender issue. It is a community issue.

We all know or have known someone who has been a victim. We can watch for signs of abuse in a loved one and be available with open arms to reach out and hold them if they ask for it.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Top of mind awareness is needed in our communities across the country to do what we can to change the staggering statistics.  I don’t want to resign myself to every nine seconds as a given. Every nine seconds should never be a given!

Domestic Violence is a community issue. As a community we must confront it.
