Tonight is the night I've been waiting for,It's finally hear. My mom drops me off at the church for the Girl Scout lock in. I kiss her and my little brother goodbye, I'm so excited I'm going to earn my Camping Badge tonight,plus it's the first time I have ever spent the night away from home.......
When I get home the next morning the house is all torn up and my mom is crying and my brother is crying.
My dad had hit my mom the night before and tore up the house. Get this all because my mom gave my brother the last grape soda.
He pulled her out of the shower and beat her up because of the last grape soda she didn't know he wanted.
The abuse went on for years,until my mother finally left him...See when a man hits a woman he doesn't just hurt her physically he kills the spirit within her, He also damages the children involved. They will carry the scars long after the abuse is over.
One good thing did come from the situation ...I vowed I would never let a man hit me and my children would never have to live in fear.
That no matter what was going on outside the house they would always feel safe at home and they DO
For any woman that is being abused you are way to VALUABLE to let a man hit YOU!!!
