Approximately 15.5 million children are exposed to domestic violence every year and three women are killed by a current or former intimate partner each day.
Unfortunately, our family has experienced DOMESTIC VIOLENCE first hand. In 2004, my sister Heather and her friend Amy were murdered by a monster. Amy and Heather were victims of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. This tragic event left our families with no time to prepare for the loss. There was no time for goodbyes, hugs, kisses or for us to tell that how much we love them. A monster decided that he would take these beautiful women from the families and friends that love them so much. Heather and Amy were healthy and happy. They had so much to live for but was not given the opportunity to live out a long happy life.
So many women and children deal with DOMESTIC VIOLENCE every day. Most are ashamed of the DOMESTIC VIOLENCE they have to deal with on a daily basis. Everyday I wish I could go back to that night in 2004 and change the tragic events that changed my life forever. No matter what I do I can't change those events. It has taken me years to realize I can make a difference...I can help someone that is experiencing DOMESTIC VIOLENCE right now. With your help, I can bring awareness to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. No one should have to live in silence or be ashamed of DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
Everyone has done an awesome job with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has brought awareness and donations to the ALS Foundation. I would like to do the same for DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
