So, why do we have Domestic Violence Awareness Month? Another reason is to keep abuse in front of the public. If it we didn't do this people would forget. This type of abuse would go back to being the silent epidemic it once was.
It bothers me that this lady asked this question so sincerely. She got the message on why we have Domestic Violence Awareness Month when I asked about breast cancer. No one questions the need for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and she didn't either.
That drove my point home. Now she understands why we have Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If you are wondering about it I hope that you understand too.
