Her Words, Her Voice

Her words, her voice…

“He loves me…
I just have a big mouth and you know it…
he is just stressed out…
he didn’t mean to…
he said sorry…
mind your own business!
I love him though…
I don’t think I can go back to him, he choked me when I tried to leave and tried to drown me in your bathtub…
he is worthless and in jail, maybe now I’ll stay away…
I am not going back to him…
he brought me medicine….I still…can’t forgive him…
I want my daughter back…
he is crazy….(silent & scared look in her eyes)
I got my daughter back…
I’m just going to stay home where it’s safe…….”

— that very night, in her own home, in her own bed – she was silenced forever.
 

Say NO to Domestic Violence.  Break the cycle before it breaks or kills you.
