Violence Awareness Month 2013

Violence Awareness Month was in October, and I’m reflecting on the things I did to honor the women, men, and families who have had domestic abuse affect their lives.  How moving it was to speak at a Candlelight Vigil held at North Hennepin Community College.  As the names of individuals who were killed by their abusers were called, a friend or relative blew out one of the candles lit in their memory.  It was a powerful image and remembrance of these persons whose lives were cut short in such a tragic and preventable way.

There is tremendous power when people gather together for a common purpose — to end the violence.  When will it stop?
