The public assumes that we can control domestic violence, unlike breast cancer. But that's not true.
Domestic violence can seep into your life unannounced, catch you unaware and bring you to your knees before you can even catch your breath.
Just like a disease.
Domestic violence permeates into all aspects of a person's life. It controls, threatens, yells, beats, bruises, stings, scars, rapes, tortures, shames, rages, extorts, terrifies, degrades, defiles, sickens, horrifies, destroys....and kills.
Be aware. Spread awareness with the purple ribbon. It's time to go purple and end the violence.
