DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FROM VICTIM TO SURVIVOR… By Amanda Ingram
THE ULTIMATE WEAKNESS OF VIOLENCE IS THAT IT IS A DESCENDING SPIRAL…
BEGETTING THE VERY THING IT SEEKS TO DESTROY
INSTEAD OF DIMINISHING EVIL, IT MULTIPLIES IT
THROUGH VIOLENCE YOU MAY MURDER THE LIAR.
BUT YOU CANNOT MURDER THE LIE, NOR ESTABLISH THE TRUTH.
THROUGH VIOLENCE YOU MAY MURDER THE HATER…
BUT YOU DO NOT MURDER THE HATE.
IN FACT VIOLENCE MERELY INCREASES HATE…SO IT GOES.
RETURNING VIOLENCE FOR VIOLENCE MULTIPLIES VIOLENCE…
ADDING DEEPER DARKNESS TO A NIGHT ALREADY DEVOID OF STARS.
DARKNESS CANNOT DRIVE OUT DARKNESS…
ONLY LIGHT CAN DO THAT.
HATE CANNOT DRIVE OUT HATE…
ONLY LOVE CAN DO THAT.
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. JANUARY 15, 1929 - APRIL 4, 1968
THIS IS THE STORY OF A GIRL...
WHO LIVED IN A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOUSEHOLD
WHOSE PARENTS WOULD CONSTANTLY FIGHT WITH EACH OTHER…
AND WOULD CONSTANTLY FIGHT OVER HER…
SHE AWOKE MANY NIGHTS AND TRIED TO DROWN OUT THE NOISE OF THE CONSTANT FIGHTS…
AFTER ALL…WHO COULD HER AND HER SIBLINGS TURN TO?
HER MOTHER FOUGHT FOR AS LONG AS SHE COULD…UNTIL ONE DAY…IT WAS TAKEN TO FAR…
AND A GUN WAS PUT TO HER MOTHERS HEAD…
THIS IS THE STORY OF…
ME…
AND MY FAMILY
AND HOW AFTER EVERYTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED…
WE SURVIVED.
