@Th1kmdm09: TV vs Silver Screen #DomesticViolence

My boyfriend and I sat down to watch DVD movies this weekend.  As usual, I had Law and Order on the TV and they were showing their marathon on Domestic Violence and how to support in the fight against domestic violence.  I was not really watching but the TV noise kept me company for awhile.  One of the movies he had was The Perfect Guy.  I told him I did not want to watch that at all.  He stated, how can you watch Law and Order domestic violence and not watch a Hollywood movie on the same subject.  This got me to thinking...why was I watching shows that really I had already seen before and not watch this movie.  

Well, the answer for that is this....I don't watch every L and O show that comes on and at that time I was not watching television, it was on for noise only.  The reason I wont watch the movie has several levels.  I dont want to watch something that glorifies beating another person.  I don't find that event with A-list actors that they could in anyway portray the reality of being stalked, hunted, abused and/or scared out of your mind in that way unless they have personally been through it and last but no least, I do not wish to be reminded of a situation that I myself was in personally that took two years of my life to get out of.  

Though domestic violence needs a voice and a face, many of the ways that it is portrayed on screen, in my opinion, can never match the intensity of the situation when someone is experiencing it on a daily basis.  Liken that to being the mother of a murdered child or the mother of a lost soldier.  You will never understand until it happens to you.  I still to this day turn my face away from any situation that mirrors that.  I can talk about my situation because I have lived through it and once was enough for me.

What I want to publicize is where to go to get help, what are the signs, how do you talk with a family member who is going through it.  How do you keep yourself out of a dangerous situation if you are not the one involved in a domestic violence situation. .  Do you know any of these situations or how to deal with them at all? Do you know where to send someone if they need help?  This is what needs to be known by everyone with a voice, like myself, willing to speak out and say enough is enough.  

Domestic violence may never actually stop all together, but I believe that fighting against every form of violence and having the actual resources available for those in need is extremely important. Allowing a victim to come into his/her own and know where to go to learn about finances, housing, medical, daycare, interviews, jobs, clothing, health and beauty is also extremely beneficial not only to the victim but to those surrounding them.  

Don't push this under the rug any longer. Get in the know!  Make a donation today at www.GoFundMe.com/50Shadesofblue and take a stand against domestic violence!

[FOOD FOR THOUGHT]

“The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time”

Why Is It... A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping in an advertised bed, washes with an advertised soap, shaves with an advertised razor, sits down and drinks advertised tea or coffee, drives to work in an advertised car and writes with an advertised pen. Then... He refuses to advertise, saying "Advertising doesn't work". But when his business fails, he finally advertises: "Business for Sale" - Anonymous
