an issue of anger or loss of control,
it is about establishing control! One person trying to control the life of another person, and the person being victimized is often told it is for their own good, but abuse is never good. It may consist of repeated, severe beatings, but often it consists of more subtle forms of abuse, including verbal abuse, threats and controlling behaviors.
It is not "marital conflict," "mutual abuse," "a lovers' quarrel," "child discipline" or "a private family matter."
It is a CRIME
and it is OUR concern!
"Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, and correct the oppressor. Defend the fatherless, plead for the widow." Isaiah 1:17
Speak up, speak out and save a life!
