Three words can change a person's life forever...

A few years ago, there was a “high profile” case of domestic violence and it appears this case has finally put a spotlight on this horrible ordeal that is too bright to ignore. It’s sad but it’s true, that we had to see the video of him hitting her so hard, that she was knocked unconscious and then dragged out of the elevator, before we accepted what we already knew, she was a victim of domestic violence. Domestic violence is a subject that we don’t want to talk about because it makes us uncomfortable. Being uncomfortable has to be expected when change is the outcome that is wanted. Our views of domestic violence have to change and our voices have to be heard. I have a daughter and I can only imagine what my feelings would have been, had that been her, being dragged out that same elevator. I have a son and I can only imagine what my feelings would have been, had that been him, dragging someone else’s daughter out of that same elevator. Today I can only pray, that I loved my kids in a way that they will never find themselves in an abusive relationship and God forbid, if that becomes the case, I will do the only thing that I can do, and that is to once again pray, that he or she would reach out for help, to stop the abusing or stop being abused. There are so many things that can take place in a person’s life that could possibly lead them to becoming a victim but I believe without question, the words they hear and the actions that will follow those words, from the people they love and trust, will play a role in remaining a victim or having the courage to no longer be a victim. Choose your words wisely because it only takes three words to change a person’s life forever.
