Take a stand against violence.

“What could I do? There wasn’t anything I could do? I couldn’t stand up against him!”

Actually, you could, can and should have.

I have had several battered women seek shelter in our home and to a man, their abuser backs off when they are confronted. I have been told it is because I am male.

That might be true in some, but not all cases. It is the thought that their despicable behavior is now known to another and s/he will call the police.

Here is an incident shared by the clinic of a battered woman seeking help from the female staff. She gave them a note stating that her boyfriend was an abuser and had a gun. The couple were waiting in the examining room for the vet.

Read and view how the staff reacted.

  1. How did we come to this social state where seemingly everyone is out for themselves and few will stand up for what is right?

    Here is an example of what I am referring to: https://www.vancourier.com/news/vancouver-woman-attacked-on-night-bus-questions-transit-security-video-1.23457857

    A woman is assaulted on a bus. The driver and the passengers do squat. This assailant would be very easy to subdue immediately if someone had the character to do what is right.
