“Any kind of abuse, God knows, is a crime. She won’t have a second try…open up your heart, as well as your eyes.”
On the topic of gender violence, I could not stop myself from sharing this other very important song/video. I want to point out that saying something can mean a simple 911 call if you are witness to a violent situation. Please have the courage to be a leader in the face of situations that may be outside of your control…you may save a life in the process.
I am always reminded of a story I learned in Social Psychology about Kitty Genovese…it is the unfortunate true story of a woman who was stabbed to death in New York in 1964 in front of an apartment building. She screamed for help and there were apparently thirty-eight witnesses. The unbelievable tragedy is that none of the 38 witnesses called the police! This type of thing really does happen, so please do not hesitate to call 911…even if you think someone is already doing it!
