Community response crucial to tackling domestic violence

These two women talk about the abuse they went through as children and how they have turned that into a positive thing in thier lives by using it to help others. A quote from each of the women:

“Our system has a lot of control issues,” said Connelly. “We need to be more focused on what the heck is wrong with people.”

“My mom didn’t know that hitting was abuse. It is so important to talk about violence as much as we can so people know its not O.K.,” added Palmer. “Violence is learned, batters become batters after watching violence.”
