Domestic Violence Awareness Month Vigil

Tonight in Decatur, Georgia, Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence will be holding our Candlelight Vigil to commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month. If you cannot attend, we hope you will light a candle around dusk and take a moment of silence for the hundreds of women, children, and men across the country who lost their lives in domestic violence homicides. When you hear domestic violence statistics, remember that behind each number is a human being and a family who was forever changed by violence.

For years I've been unable to donate or to volunteer for WRC, yet my gratitutde for services rendered has never diminished. I am thrilled for Ayonna Johnson's honor of receiving the Deborah C. McDorman Flame Award. Hers was among the first faces I met when WRC "rescued" me from a scary situation years ago. I continue to be grateful and to support you all in any way I can, even if it just with my prayers and thanks!
