I was tagged from a childhood school friend on Facebook, she shared this so I thought I would post it just as it is. This little story is the very reason I am on a mission to educate and raise awareness of our alarming statistics on domestic violence. This is what it is ALL about. For many victims this is exactly how it goes. In the United States alone 15 million children witness and over 46 million children endure some form of abuse. Often many witnessed such a life as children and sadly 96% will grow up and repeat history.
Casey Morley, you work so hard in getting this message out to the public, I am sharing this in honor of those who will understand.
We had our first argument last night, and he said loads of cruel things that really hurt me. I KNOW he’s sorry and didn’t mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today. It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day. Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me. It seemed like a nightmare, I couldn’t believe it was real. I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.I know he MUST be sorry because he sent me flowers today.I got flowers today; it wasn’t Mother’s Day or any other special day. Last night, he beat me up again; it was much worse than all the other times. If I leave him, what will I do? How will I take care of my kids? What about money? I’m afraid of him but scared to leave. But I know he MUST be sorry because he sent me flowers today. I got flowers today. Today was a very special day. It was the day of my funeral. Last night, he finally killed me. He beat me to death. If only I had gathered enough courage to leave him, I wouldn’t have gotten flowers today. If YOU are against Domestic Abuse, please pass this web site along to everyone – Not just women:
