October is domestic violence awareness month. Domestic violence is a form of control by using violence. It comes in many forms; mentally, physically and emotionally. It not only affects the victim's life, but it affects the children for a lifetime. If you trust God and step out on faith, God will release you from this evil force. If you don't act on it, it will lead to the victim's death, the abuser's death or both in prison. You will know when enough is enough. Call your nearest Battered Women's Shelter.
This month we recognize Tai Shi "Co Co" Varner for her bravery as a victim of domestic violence. She was sentenced to 5 years in prison on September 1, 2010 with voluntary manslaughter. May God be with her as she goes through her journey.
