When we hear the word “October” we immediately think of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, right? Everywhere we go we see pink ribbons and t-shirts with the word “survivor” emblazoned on them.
What few people may realize is that October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Did you know that on average nearly 20 people a minute in the United States become victims of physical violence at the hands of their partner? That is nearly 10 million women and men per year!
