Effects of Abuse

It broke my heart to write about and think about the people living with domestic violence, but it cannot and will not change if we do not talk about.  The effects of domestic violence is felt while it is happening and long after it is over, and in the worst cases, domestic violence results in death. Before you let someone or you believe you can handle what is happening look at what domestic violence does to a person. Know you are worth more!
