I would love to be able to attend but time doesn't allow. I would like to share my experience, my contact with women who are beaten daily. Women who are told they are nothing until they believe it. And their children who witness this abuse until they think this is what women deserve.

I would like to share so this vicious circle of violence can be broken.

But events such as this give me hope. Go if you can.
