I have been lurking around the Social Justice CHallenge, adding whatever resources I can to help address the monthly issues. This month’s focus is on Domestic Violence and Child Abuse. A HUGE subject matter and sadly, one you won’t have any trouble finding any books, fiction or non-fiction, that address this awful plague. Take some time and look around the page set up with book, media and website recommendations. Decide what you’d like to read, watch or learn about this month. If you have more recommendations for us, let us know. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of domestic violence and child abuse?
What does domestic violence and child abuse mean to you personally? Thankfully I have not had intimate knowledge of domestic violence or child abuse. It is a topic that really makes me sad to think that children and families are torn apart by violence, the growing trend of domestic violence and the poor children who are powerless to stop it. They are innocent victims in all this. When I read the newspapers and they cover the most horrorific cases, many poor children under the "protection" of DHS that have died, it makes me want to cry and it also makes me really angry that children are dying everday!
