October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and I wanted to share some thoughts. This isn’t much of a post but some thoughts I had in 2015 when triggered after seeing Sam Hunt’s video, I just want to take your time. You have to pay close attention to the subtext in the video if you’re not familiar with Domestic Violence. The video starts with a fight and ends in one, a very important life-changing one.

I witnessed my mother get beaten emotionally and physically every day, it created chaos in my young mind. A tornado burned a hole in my heart. I couldn’t understand the feelings of pain when being abused and watching abuse. Child abuse leaves a deep scar in my heart, so does seeing abuse.
A volcano erupted in me, I survived Domestic Violence and had no idea.
The video is heartbreaking, beautiful, and hopeful.
