2020 is one month old, but five women have already met their end. In the majority of cases, they knew the aggressor. There has been very little national discussion about it. Why?
While the nation has made progress in how they view domestic violence, I know that some things have not changed, and how far we have to go.
Without a strict set of rules and laws, we default to violence. In fact, the only thing holding back our violent tendencies is the fear of greater violence. What we need is a cure.
For those who immediately lost their innocence on 9/11, I feel every act of organised terror since has not reached us as we’ve adjusted our eyes to the flash of violence.
The trend that allows you to destroy a room full of objects in the name of inner peace sounds good, but it’s akin to putting a band-aid on a broken limb.
