Stop Abuse

If you want to see a really good movie…..one that can make a difference go see “I Can Only Imagine.”

I saw it twice.  Parts of it are hard to watch even the second time.  I winced at the violence I knew was not fictional.  I imagined how many children and adults are victims of abuse.  I thought about how many women go from one bad relationship to the next.  I remembered stories of seniors being treated badly in senior care facilities.

There are a lot of ways to get help.

  • Adult protective services
  • Local Law enforcement
  • YWCA Hotline
  • National Domestic Abuse Hotline:  800-799-7233
  • Website:  http://www.thehotline.org

Raise awareness in your church or civic organization.  Invite speakers who can educate your group.

If you need help, talk to someone you trust; or make that anonymous phone call.
