Sometimes domestic violence can seem just too personal for anyone to do anything about it. Believe me, there are moments — despite feeling the utmost sympathy, solidarity, and rage for those suffering under domestic violence — when I feel that way, too. But considering the implications outside the home as well as inside, it just seems downright sensible AND sensitive to find a way to put an end to it. Who's with me?
Domestic violence is bad for the economy. Yes, that's $8.3 BILLION.
It's not so much helping America's employment numbers, either.
Many of those affected by domestic violence are silenced. So, I'm frickin' shouting this stuff from the rooftops! And by rooftops, I mean you bet I'll be sharing this. Whether or not you wanna join me is up to you.
I'll just be over here, thinking about what our country could do with an extra $8.3 *billion*.
