October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in the United States, so I offer this post as my small part in raising awareness…
“Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence, domestic abuse, or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. It can happen to anyone at any point in a relationship. Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, cause fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish, or force them to behave in ways they do not want. This October… we are bringing awareness to domestic violence through the #1Thing campaign and celebrating DVAM.”
I pray that domestic violence will end, and I offer these prayers for those who are suffering in that abusive realm ~
~ For the victims of abuse who are living scared, may they have strength, and may they leave if it is safe to do so, and then may they be comforted in their grief and healing.
~ For the abusers who are causing so much harm, may they heal their own wounds, and may they become better people on the planet.
May October be a month of healing and peace for all human beings. This being human is very challenging, but together we can all rise above the wounds and create harmony for all beings.
May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.
May All Beings Be Happy.
