We talk a lot about trick or treating, but October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
*****2 Million Injuries & 1,300 Deaths Are Caused Each Year As A Result Of Domestic Violence.
Domestic Violence can happen to anyone and affects everyone.
Domestic Violence includes Threats, Verbal Abuse & Any Force During An Argument . It Doesn’t Always Have To Be Physical Abuse. It’s When One Person Tries To Dominate & Control The Other & It Does Not Discriminate. It Occurs Within All Age Ranges , Ethnic Backgrounds & Economic Levels. And While Women Are More Commonly Victimized, Men Are Abused Too, Especially Verbally & Emotionally.
If You’re Going Through This Keep Your Faith…..
Break The Silence, STOP The Violence!
