Domestic Violence. It is in the news this week and it is making me sick to my stomach. The violent actions of an athlete are only exacerbated by the inactions (or under actions) of the National Football League. This is not just a football problem – it is a disturbing pattern in our society to blame the victim, rather than punish the perpetrator.
From what I understand, so many victims feel there is no way out of their situation. They do not know where to turn, whom to trust, and do not see a way to safely exit the relationship.
I could go on a huge rant right now, but I want to be positive. So rather than just pontificate about the unfairness of this situation, I am putting forth a challenge to all my friends in the Blogosphere:
Bloggers: I Challenge You To Share The National Domestic Violence Hotline Contact Information- 800.799.7233 http://www.thehotline.org
All you ladies and gentlemen who have blogs that are focused on women, are for women, or just are read mostly by women, step up and help domestic violence victims by letting them know they are not alone! Share a post on your website with the contact information for the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Let your readership know you support people to get help if they are victims of domestic violence.
