Domestic Violences – It’s a KILLER


*** I remember reading this poem somewhere before, then someone posted it on our forum.  If you know anyone  involved in Domestic Violence situation, give it to them, maybe this will help them gather the courage to leave. ******** 

I GOT FLOWERS TODAY

We had our first argument last night, and he said a lot of cruel things that really hurt me.  I know he is sorry and didn’t mean the things he said, because he sent me flowers today.  I GOT FLOWERS TODAY, It wasn’t our anniversary or any other special day.  Last night he threw me into a wall and started to choke me.  It seemed like a nightmare, I couldn’t believe it was real.  I woke up this morning sore and bruised all over.  I know he must be sorry because he send me flowers today.  I GOT FLOWERS TODAY, and it wasn’t mother’s day or any other special day.  Last night he beat me up again, it was much worse than all the other times.  If I leave him, what will I do?  How will I take care of my kids?  What about money? I’m afraid of him and scared to leave.  But I know he must be sorry because he sent me flowers today.  I GOT FLOWERS TODAY.  Today was a very special day, It was the day of my  FUNERAL! Last night, he finally killed me.  He beat me to death.  If only I had gather enough courage to leave him, I WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN FLOWERS TODAY.  (Author unknown)

****Domestic Violence is a crime, It can hurt and it can kill.  If you know anyone who is a victim of Domestic Violence.  Tell them to, REPORT IT, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, AND MOST OF ALL LEAVE IT.  Women are not the only victims of this crime; what is least reported is Domestic Violence where a man is the victim*****
