Domestic violence should not happen to anybody. Ever. Period. But it does - and when it does, there is help. Maybe you have lived with abuse, maybe it happened just once; maybe you work or live next to someone who is being abused right now.
If you or anyone you know is being abused, please call The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a time for the community to come together and build awareness and a movement towards safe and healthy relationships for all individuals and families. Domestic violence touches every person in our community and society as a whole; and violates a person’s dignity, safety, and basic human rights. Stand up as a champion for survivors and join the movement for a safer and healthier community

Cancer has plagued our Women for Years. Now it's an epidemic that can't be ignored. It has affected our men and children as well even as early as one year olds. We must use alternative measures to fight this disease. Domestic Violence has exculated from 1 out of 4 women to 1 out of 3 who are victims of Domestic Violence. It's time to end the Holy Hush!!
Domestic violence is a cancer and a stigma that erodes our society in a very quiet way. We all know about it, we know that it happens but the women that suffer it very seldom are in a position to step up and confront their problems. They are victims and very weak on their predicament, as they are living with the abuser, and in many cases ashamed, by their abuser, preconceptions and society in general. They don’t talk about their problems and they may stay in this situation for years before they gather the courage to move away, to move on and get a life of their own, for themselves and their children. In many instances they feel that they are alone, that this is happening only to them, so they feel that they don’t have rights, they don’t have the strength and they don’t have a voice.
We have decided to give some attention to this problem in this month of awareness and we will be talking to Rhachelle Nicol. She is an incredible woman, with all the strength and all the voice to be able to transmit to others that it is hard but it can be done.
Please join us Tuesday October 22 for a talk about abuse and how to step away from it
Domestic violence is a term used to characterize a pattern of obvious and subtle hash and brash behaviours resulting into physical and psychological abuses between partners in any types of intimate relationships or other members in a household. Domestic violence can be in a cumulative form of physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse or any other type of control mechanism to coerce another individual perpetually. Consequences of domestic violence vary from anxiety, dismay, social disconnect, fragile mental state, tension, breakdown mental and unpredictable consequences such as illness, homicide or permanent disfigurement.
Although domestic violence is a punishable crime and a civil wrong in most well developed countries, it is often under-reported for obvious reasons and hard to prove before the consequence of violence has already taken its toll on the victim, who also may act in self-defence or retaliation. This problem is a growing concern for law enforcement everywhere, as it creates inherent problems in the criminal justice system. Therefore, it is within our civil responsibility to the society as well as it is to the state that we address this issue together. We urge people to join the discussion to help shed a light on various perspectives surrounding domestic violence and more on how to encourage victims to talk openly about how to identify and correct the pattern before it escalates. There are help programs for both abusers and victims.
Before we end this month of October which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we would like to have this show as a means to offer our listeners a platform to speak out against it. Just call 713-955-0708 and listen in or share with us your testimony. Love&Service
We here at Taking Shots Radio love women. Love Them! Lately we've been accused of being misogynists (google it). So to stop all that noise we dropped a classic on domestic violence. We tell you what to do to avoid having a hardcore wrestling match with your significant other and then run down the list of a few celebrities that have knuckled up against their spouses!

Domestic Violence is real and entire families are being wiped-out because of it. Innocent children are being killed for no reason, fathers are taking out the entire family through murder-suicides.
Why does it seem to be increasing instead of decreasing with all of the organizations that are available with resources? What is.....does not work, there must be a new strategy put in place and incorporated. The spirit-man must be restored from the inside out.....brokenness, depression, low self-esteem,traumas from childhood all spill over into the adult life and are volatile if not resolved.
Do you know who you are allowing to come into your personal space? How do you know if they are right for you and your future...will you have a future?
Let's face hard truths that can help you make a better decision.
