DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WHEN WILL IT STOP? By Gee Lucero
Domestic violence continues throughout the United States along with other countries. Many children are left without their parents due to the pain and sometimes death that is caused by domestic violence.
Many people wonder if domestic violence along with other abuses that cause just not the physical pain but the emotional trauma that comes with it. A lot of women will not cry out for help for fear for themselves and most of the time for their children.
Domestic violence goes clear into another form of abuse, which is child abuse. Children are being abused because the parents are using drugs, do not have employment or are in depression and get to the point they do not care. They take it out on the ones they are supposed to love and nurture.
Getting into a relationship many times you do not know that person, as well as you might think you do. If you take the time to meet your partner’s parents and see how they are together you can tell if there is real love there. Are they in love? Still what says what goes on behind closed doors? You have to go on faith, affection, trust and believing in one another. Keep any and all violence and abuse out of your home for your whole family.
Will Domestic Violence Ever Stop? Most likely not...but we can all try harder to keep our home a safe haven for ourselves and for our children. Don’t be afraid to intervene by calling for help if you see abuse happening out your home. If you are a victim, as I write this I beg you to “Get Out”. The abuse will continue regardless if you have been told over and over that they are sorry or that it will not happen again. It will happen again and it can continue until you are no longer apart of this world. If you have children think of the emotional trauma they are going through because their parent is afraid to get free of the abuse they are dealing with.
Open your eyes…Save yourself and save your children. There is help out there. You are never alone.
