Words Hurt, Too!!!

If you can say that you have Never seen, heard, or had knowledge of Domestic Violence occurrences happening, i would have to belive your in denial. Every City, County, and State in America has profuse amounts of Domestic Violence situations. According to Uniform Crime Reports, Federal Bureau of Investigation, There is a woman beaten by her husband or partner every 15 seconds in the United States, there is an extremely high chance that you know one or several of these unfortunate women. Domestic Violence occurs hundreds of times a day, in thousands of homes far past the shores of America, all across the world. Abuse is not always physical, although a fair amount of abuse perpetrated is physical. Abuse can be emotional, physical, psychological, and even financial. When domestic violence is committed, never does it affect any one person singularly, and ultimately acts of domestic violence undoubtedly affects everyone, even those not witnessing these acts first hand. Rather than Domestic Violence affecting us all individually, its affecting Society as a whole. Not only is Domestic Violence itself a major issue, many other major issues derive from it. Issues developed from domestic violence ultimately effect some of the most innocent and intelligent minds we have in our world today, our Youth. At least 3.3 million children in the United States are exposed to domestic violence each year. The abuse, rather than allowing that youth to develop their full potentials, more often leaves them turning to destructive measures as coping mechanisms. Worse, the cycle of abuse continues generation after generation. Are you being affected by Domestic Violence? Actually, every person in the world is affected by Domestic Violence. It is apparent the victim is affected, although the damage is greater than it ever really could be recognized. Domestic Violence can result in bruises, scratches, scrapes, but the serious damages are more personal, such as psychological, or maybe even in some instances emotional. Along with unrecognized internal damage, is the equally unnoticed impact domestic violence has on many others. The person being abusive, the family of the victim, the friends of the victim and or the victims family, neighbors, children of the victim or abuser, even the health care system is affected.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Approximately 250,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Of those, nearly 40,000 women will die from the disease. According to the National Cancer institute, men between the ages of sixty and seventy years old are also at risk. In fact, of the approximately 2,500 cases this year, death will result in 450 to 500 cases. Breast cancer among women is second to lung cancer in the number of deaths it causes each year. Breast cancer is 100% more likely in women than men, but, of those diagnosed with breast cancer, 1% are men. This is dedicated to the brave women and men who battle this disease, in memory of those we have lost, and in support of loved ones.Julie Lewis (Banks) The OUTLOOK October 2012 Page 6
