The Rainbow in the Stone

Literature around the issue of domestic violence....fiction, non-fiction, poetry. Long ago and far away there were two little girls on a beach, collecting pretty stones. One of them asked the other, "why are you picking up the black ones?" The other little girl said, "Because they have the rainbows in them." She held one in the water and took it out to show. "See? You can only really see it with them. With the black ones, you can always see the rainbow in the stone."
