Today, domestic violence affects many families.
Some people have trouble controlling their emotions and react
violently under certain circumstances. The vicious cycle continues,
feelings are not communicated, and this pattern of violence passes
from one generation to the next… the result only continues to hurt
those who are abused and those who commit the abuse.
Have you ever been a victim of
domestic violence? Your experiences can help stop
this terrible cycle and make our homes healthier
places to live.
