This page is for everybody in the world who has ever suffered from Domestic Violence. It is not just for women and children, as men suffer, too. In fact they suffer in more silence than women do. But I'm tired of nothing been done and that victims are simply mere statistics in one form or the other.But together we can try to get governments all over the world to help now , before we are headline news this time as murder statistics rather than victims of abuse.We the survivors have to ensure that we protect the next generation of children so that they are not ignorant to any form of abuse,and will not tolerate it in anyway
