There is no doubt in my mind that Central Florida is a location where BTS can have an impact in creating awareness and helping give a name to what so many are experiencing; to say that what is going on is NOT OK and SOMETHING MUST and CAN be done. There are organizations who TRULY are advocates for those in these situations and BTS is one of them.
I left a DV situation when my son was 5 weeks old. I am THANKFUL that I heeded that voice inside that said GO NOW and did not wait for it to get worse or second guess or question the Spirit of God telling me to GO. I am THANKFUL that I did not stick around for it to get to a point that was more scary or scarring (emotionally or physically) to me or my son. Over time, I have heard stories that don't even fit in my brain, and all I know is I am THANKFUL to have heeded the early signs and promptings.
Those who are survivors CAN HELP through the survival process and prevent tragedies. In my opinion, EVERY community should have access to these resources, but with the population we have in Central Florida, certainly the potential for impact is GREAT.
