Domestic Violence is an offense which should not be accepted. It is an affront to human dignity,
degrades a human being, and should not be tolerated. Thus, doing everything possible to prevent
incidents of domestic violence and dealing
effectively with both victims and offenders when incidents do occur, is not only
the right thing to do, it is a necessity. Taking care of all members of the
family is an institutional value crucial to the
success and health of any nation. Providing a safe and wholesome environment for
families is a key quality of life which should be the objective of any man.

  • I wrote a book about my life of abuse. It took 7 years and was like reliving it all again. There were things that I had buried but in writing the book I had to drag it out and it was very painful. The link below will take you directly to Eva, the darkness in my life.It is 467 pages and is priced at $4.50. Please read it – I hope with all my heart that it may help someone.
