I have had such a great response to my posts this month that I just wanted to share why I decided to start raising awareness.

I have worked in the field of education for over twenty years and seen many cases of domestic violence and its affect on the children who attended the schools I worked in.

I have also had the opportunity to assist these women escape from there abusers by just being there for them and encouraging them.  

Raising awareness is one of my new missions in life.
