Everything comes in threes……….. Triangles, triads, complaints (his, hers, and the truth), my blog is no different. I had a busy three weeks, the holidays are very busy and an ever changing work schedule only makes time more difficult. As Christmas comes to a close and the New Year inches closer I will share one negative, one positive, and one idea of change for the domestic violence cause.
Since it is days after Christmas, Santa is on his way back to the North Pole and Jesus is a few days older a positive note comes first. There are many good things coming to the cause, there are many good, strong people involved in it. This year more change will come, more lives will be touched, and at least one less victim will be the end result.
To every positive thing there is a negative reaction, domestic violence is no different. In a three day span, prior to Christmas there were twenty-eight (limited counting) of deaths directly related to domestic violence. This is an unacceptable and high number. The numbers are growing as is the apparent acceptance of domestic violence as a culture norm, this is scary.
