6/16/2010: Domestic Violence Survivors

June 18, 2010

“Domestic Violence should never happen nor be tolerated by any person or society. Anyone can be a victim at anytime and it often isn't taken seriously until the situation culminates into violence. Domestic violence is often preceded by verbal, psychological, and emotional abuse these of which can leave lasting scars and damages in a person’s life,” said Senator Huntley. She continued, “Most of all children who are subject to these heinous cowardly acts can suffer the most hurtful consequence. When these children grow older they can suffer from emotional anguish and trauma, physical injuries from the abuse, and of growing concern repeat the cycle of abuse by committing these acts themselves. Proactive measures must be implemented to protect spouses or partners of either gender, families, and especially children from suffering domestic violence.”
