Below is a video documentary of women who have been abused and those who work with them. 1 in 3 women have been or will be abused. This affects all of us. 75% of the time the acts of aggression for Power and Control are not accompanied by drugs and alcohol.
50% of all criminal violence and homicides involve domestic violence.
73% of women who are killed by domestic violence never called to report it.
Children in a home are often killed first, so the female victim sees this, in a homicide/suicide.
The best statistical predictor of impending death or lethality in a domestic violent relationship is if strangulation has been used.
Relationships start out warm and charming, and then there is verbal, emotional, sexual or physical abuse which is blamed on the victim, followed by a honeymoon period of promises of silence, as if it will not happen again.
The abuser will isolate the victim with use of her phone, jealousy, finances, and her children to control his 'love supply'.
The abuser often has a wounded childhood past, and selfishly holds onto the victim as his love source, in an unhealthy demanding way, based on fear that she will leave. Leaving is the time when there is no longer ability to control and have power over the victim, so this is the most dangerous time.
**Women need options for leaving, and a 'safety' plan before they leave, and one of after they leave.
15% of victims are males.
After acts of aggression and violence, there is a Honeymoon period, followed by increased tension, and then more violence, many times, escalating violence.
Children who are physically and sexually abused in a home of domestic violence are damaged, but statistics show those children who watch violence, not being able to 'fix it', are actually damaged more. Suicides, drug and alcohol use and abuse often involve having been in a home of domestic violence. Instead of being able to absorb layers of development and learning, the child has learned to scan the room and watch hands, faces and voices, because their brain is wired for erupting violence.
Here is one woman's documentation of her face on a daily basis as she is victimized by abuse.

Dr. Carson works at John Hopkins, and was asked to address a recent Prayer Meeting held in early 2013. America is not devoid of voices of hope. I listened to his entire speech, felt grateful for his instruction and shared faith and answers, and decided to share this. Regardless of our varied spiritual paths and beliefs, I doubt anyone can deny the common sense and power of this man's words. He asks God to help him say what he is supposed to say. Tell us what you think in the comment section below...
key words: health care, taxes, Obama, prayer meeting, Dr. Carson, hope for America, 3 branches of government, special interest groups, etc.
