I started the Domestic Violence Project back in August 2011 when I began to collect six-word thoughts on domestic violence (to read about it, click here). It was…and still is…my hope to highlight this cause one word at a time.
Although I haven’t collected as many responses as I would have liked, we’re slowly getting there. Michelle Garrett of Divas With A Purpose helped by hosting a contest where she offered 6 Kindle copies of Zaire’s Place, for which I’m grateful.
So, without further ado, here are the responses for the Domestic Violence Project that have been collected thus far. To read my personal story dealing with abuse—“I Remember When”—click here.
If you would like to submit your six-word thought on domestic violence, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or info@tcgalltin. Let’s put an end to DV one word at a time.
