#NOMORE Why Has Domestic Violence Not Declined? (Connie J)

With October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month) quickly approaching, I sit here and ask myself in my naivete, "Why has Domestic Violence not declined?"

As I have mentioned before, Domestic Violence has been around nearly since the beginning of time; and the perpetrators are getting more creative and bold.

With that being said, what bolder and more creative things can we do to battle this ever-growing epidemic? It's so entrenched in our world - in many countries, it's a weapon of war. Control.

It's going to take more than knowledge and awareness to battle it. Will we be able to totally eradicate Domestic Violence? I honestly don't know. I just know we must do what we can to fight for all the victims - past, present, and future. We must not waver in our battle.

What can you contribute to this battle? What is YOUR #NOMORE?  How can you educate yourself, and those around you to #KNOWMORE? 

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe...
