  1. I admire women and men who come to the aid of those being abused by their spouses or intimate partners. We hear the statistics rising on domestic violence and we are somewhat aware this exists, but besides talking about it, what are we actually doing to stop it? How many people actually stop and intercept a couple's raging argument? Does anyone take the time to check on the situation...? Don't you think if we were proactive and took the initiative to help defuse the pending explosion or if you're not comfortable with approaching the couple yourself, at least call the police to check out the situation? It's better to be safe than sorry, especially if the outcome is someone's death. By intercepting a potentially violent situation, could prevent another person from becoming a victim, another statistic.
