    in Current Events

    Tonight on Tackling Domestic Violence, Troy Otradovec welcomes Laura from We Are Survivors International to the show.  Laura was in an abuse relationship, and she will share her story.  Today her and her chlidren are still coping, but taking all the right steps forward. From the words of Laura:

    "Two years ago, I left my emotionally and physically abusive husband. It has been an emotional roller coaster but we are two years free and my two children and I are working through the aftershocks of a violent marriage. The effects of one monster's brutal behavior has changed our world, our outlook on life and relationships. We went through hell, but we are working through it and are in a much brighter and safer place now. The three of us will deal with the impact of this for the rest of our lives, however we are survivors and I am hopeful that we will break the cycle."

    Domestic Violence affects one in four women, in their lifetime.  Over six million children will witness some form of domestic abuse this year.  It is time to stop domestic violence one person at a time.  Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.

    Domestic Violence is an Epidemic

    in Legal

    In the wake of the tragedy where Reality TV Star lawyer Loredana Nesci, Esq. was murdered by her boyfriend Robert Reagan, we feel it is important that we discuss domestic violence.  The signs, the symptoms, the forms, the problem. Many times people do not realize that they are being abused because the abuse takes the form of emotional abuse. No abuser starts off with physical abuse;  it is a progression.  First it starts with emotional abuse. 

    Listen in to the show to learn more about domestic violence.
