I met a woman yesterday afternoon that brought this event to my attention. She is a victim of domestic violence. She ended up in the hospital with a broken jaw. She finally got out of the situation and the man who did it is now where he belongs; behind bars.

I was amazed by her openness about the situation. So many women (and men) try to hide it from everyone. I think it gives you strength to talk about it and that's what I saw in this woman; she was reclaiming herself!

She also was telling me about the Stop the Violence event tomorrow at the Expo Center. Here are the details of the event.
