We had our first quarrel today, he said so many bad things to me that really hurt, I know he is sorry and didn’t really mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today…
I got flowers today. It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.
Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me. It seemed like a nightmare, I couldn’t believe it was real! I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.
I know he must be sorry because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today and it wasn’t mother’s day or any other special day for that matter.
Last night, he beat me up again, it was so much worse than all the other times.
If I leave him, what will I do?
How will I take care of my kids?
Where would we go?
How can I possibly start over?
What about money?
Who else would have me and love me?
I’m afraid of him and scared to leave.
But I know he must be sorry
Because he sent me flowers today.
I got flowers today.
Today was a very special day.
It was the day of my funeral.
Last night, he finally killed me.
He beat me to death.
If only I had enough courage to leave him, I would not have gotten flowers today……. –
MY TAKE: Please speak out. Find your voice, find a safe haven. Domestic abuse towards women or men is not acceptable. Report it, talk to someone. Don’t keep it to yourself. If you notice someone going through it. Don’t keep quiet, report it.
Modern day slavery, domestic abuse, child abuse, just some of the evils that still exist in SOCIETY. If you see it happen and keep quiet, you are as bad as the perpetrator. To help, Speak up. If you see it, report it.
