“Nine women are shot dead every week by their husband or intimate partner.”
I believe after all the abuse I endured, that I would have been one of these women had my (ex) husband owned a gun. I mean, he did try to strangle and suffocate me with a pillow on numerous occasions – during and after my pregnancy.
The number is probably higher than nine, but even if that figure was one, it is still one too many.
I’m not sure what can be done to stop this madness (Domestic Abuse/Violence as a whole), but I know this; I will continue to spread awareness and fight the fight.
