Stop the Violence!

October is domestic violence awareness month, so obviously it’s a big deal for Apollo and I! This October, though, I’d like to take it a step beyond awareness.  I’ve been talking about domestic violence for three years.  Talking has its purposes, and is certainly necessary to “break the silence” that surrounds this issue.  In my opinion, it’s one of the best first steps we can take to ending the violence.

But talking, and awareness of the problem in general, is ONLY the first step in solving the domestic violence crisis.  This year, I’m not going to talk about what domestic violence is (for that, check out my info page on domestic violence).  Instead, let’s discuss what can be done - beyond talking about it - to stop the violence in our own lives, in our families, in our communities, in our country.
