Tense... (Connie J...)

To say our current times are "Tense", is a gross understatement. 

Whether you're like me - a single woman, with a cat, to a "nuclear" family of 4, plus. 

If you're a "Business Professional" to "Blue Collar", from "Essential" to "Currently Seeking Employment"; even extending from whatever Ethnicity/Race you are, and including your overall Financial Status.

Our current situation is tense!!!

Now, if you factor Domestic Violence into that equation, you've got a "Powder Keg", ready to go off at the slightest provocation. 

Through my job in retail, I observe things a lot of people don't get to see. The good, the bad, and the ugly...on a daily basis. 

I try to take the opportunity to "see" people, and to encourage them with a look, or a nod. If I can safely get in an encouraging word, I do. 

I've always said, if people treat their partner/children badly in public - at home is usually 10 times worse!!! 

These times are going to last awhile. Schools, and public forums, are where a lot of abuse is usually recognized, and reported. 

It's even more important, now, that if you see something during your interactions with people, to say something. It, literally, could save a life. 

Please pay attention - your "people" ARE YOUR business!!!

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
