|It is just so hard to wrap my brain around the idea that people treat each other this way.
Like our people who abuse the prisoners in Iraq, we don't want to know who these people are, because it could be us.
Most of us don't beat one another with fists, but how often did a cold word have to be cold? How much did it hurt?
Maybe a lot.
Thank you Linda...for being one of those rare people who absoluely makes the world a better place.

It takes me a few minutes to compose myself after reading your heart wrenching writes. (But unfortunately it is necessary that you do it, and you do it very well too!). Far too often anyone who is abused that doesn’t or cannot seek out professional help is only prolonging the needless suffering. In today’s society, it is very easy to pick a telephone, and have the police, or the courts become involved, or just go to a neighbor’s home. (After all the police are supposed to be here to serve and protect all of us). Yes, there is always the risk of invading ones privacy, and the possibility of the children, if they are abused being removed away from the abuser. (That’s a whole other issue to deal with). Yet, without proper documentation to support the allegation, the long-term detrimental effects on the people involved, will continue to manifest until someone is either beaten so bad, or worse… I do not understand why our government will not sacrifice just one B-2 Bomber, and create the necessary funding that will fill in the gap, which in the long-term will save everyone, including whatever so-called government agencies from becoming over burden with cases, or the already backlog clogging the courts today. I can only hope and pray that this shameful, unacceptable behavior is totally eliminated in our lifetime. I guess I rambled on enough yet, although I know it isn’t enough, I just wish it would all just STOP!!! Thank you for sharing your heart with the rest of us Poet. Keep The Faith.
My Deepest Gratitude, Respect And Admiration.

|Cowardly men won't harm another man, but will beat their wives to death.
Confusing to me.

|Abuse and the pain hidden from view we think but sooner or later while someone will stop and offer the heeling hand. No one should have to live in abuse.
thand sharing and hopefully this will help one who is suffering the pain
|Reviewed by Cynthia Castle (Reader)
|An excellent write capturing a very painful and sad subject, Poet! Too many women live like this either out of fear or lack of knowledge of help that is available. I used to do volunteer work at a local women's shelter, and I know that a lot of people didn't (or still don't) know that it existed! ...that's also partially due to the delicate nature of the shelter and the secrecy that is involved, so that these women (and often their children) are not found by their abusers! ...There is help available, and more women need to seek it!
Thanks for sharing this! God Bless you!
