October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and candlelight vigils are being held throughout the month to remember victims of domestic abuse.
For the last two decades, October has marked a time when people in the nation come together in the fight to end a tragedy that spans every culture, profession (including clergy), race and ethnicity and is happening daily whether in the form of sexual, emotional or physical abuse.
It's time to talk about it from the pulpit and the pew.
Counseling can help. A therapist will educate men and women concerning actions and behaviour modification.
