I'm not particularly proud of this, but the truth is that I don't watch TV that has much merit. Cook shows, how to shows, Hallmark shows , where the guy is rich and handsome and the girl beautiful. I do watch Sixty Minutes. Sunday dinner revolves around
this one. Oh,yes..sports. But I did watch a few minutes of a more serious program while I was getting ready for bed. A woman was being asked to testify against her abusive ,violent husband and she was reluctant to do this. Her reason? She would be admitting
that she chose this man to spend the rest of her life with and to father her children. It wasn't fear, or the fact that she had no place to go, it was that it was her judgement that was being out there for the world to see. I went to sleep thinking of this.
How strong a person has to be to break away from this abusive situation. I know that there are agencies and shelters for situations like this. I hope that the agencies will still be funded and that shelters will be there for the victims of abuse.The people
needing this are stronger than they realize and they need our support, and their privacy.
