Domestic Violence: How You Can Help One Woman Move to Safety

A few months ago, my daughter's other mother brought a roomful of people to their feet when she spoke the following words as part of speech she was giving at an event sponsored by the organization MotherWoman -- a speech in which she touched on various challenges that she had overcome in her life, including domestic violence: "I am no longer in any abusive relationships." (See video below.)



Her words, in the moment, were completely true. 

But, unfortunately, an event beyond her control loomed in the future.

Shoes

So, I have this pair of shoes. Very nice shoes. Top quality. In fact, it's hard to imagine a better pair.

Except, they don't quite fit.

You may say that having a pair of shoes that doesn't quite fit is better than having a damaged pair or having no shoes at all. You may point out that lots of other people have shoes that don't quite fit.

I won't dispute that.

But I still have this pair of shoes that don't quite fit.
