Do not know if some of you have noticed but haven't posted anything as of late, including comments. There is good reason for this and I have decided to share this reason so in the hopes of helping other people. Have a very dear friend of mine that had to do in her words one of the hardest things she has ever done in her life. Told Her mother that her husband of 3 years has routinely beaten and yelled at her causing untold damage and hurt her chances of having kids. She was afraid to to tell her mother this because in her words will not get any support.
Abuse happens more than any of us can ever truly ever know. For every story that we hear about another one happens while we remain bliss. And I just want to tell the rest of corn nation to be supportive if you have a friend that is in a relationship like this. No man ever has the right to beat or hurt a woman and the same goes the other way. If you feel the need to do that SEEk help because help is out there.
If you do know somebody that is in a relationship like that, there is no secret word to help or act that will make it all be better. All you can really do is be supportive and be there for that person. Also as much as you would love to beating on the guy hurting the woman is against the law and definitely not going to help. In fact it can only hurt in the long run.
Sorry that this is a very rough draft but it is very hard to type this kind of article. Just please keep my friend in your prayers.
