Can we just take a moment and …
- One in three women report being a victim of domestic violence (30%).
- One in five women report being a victim of sexual assault (20%).
- 60% of Americans, 15 years or older, know a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault.
- Among the 70% of women who have experienced domestic violence and told somebody about it, more than half (58%) said that nobody helped them.
No more bystanding. No more ignorance. No more excuses.

Happiness by Liz Piper (me)
I think we are all guilty of this, especially when we are sad. We focus so much on what we could have had or what we’ve lost, that we forget about who we do have. We forget about the ones that have been there for us through the entire ordeal. It’s as if you want to bathe in the dark shadows of yesterday instead of seeking for the promises of tomorrow. I know it’s an easier said than done task, but it’s not impossible. Whenever you feel like playing a song that reminds you of your sad times, or picking your brain at what went wrong, or wanting to cry, take a breath and remind yourself of the good in your life. It’s there for a reason. Use it as motivation to keep pushing forward to the great reward that’s at the end of the tunnel. It’s a constant reminder that where there is bad, there is also more good. I can’t tell you what to do. Heck, I can’t even tell myself what to do, but I’ve learned that the only person that can make you happy is you. You choose to be sad. You choose to be happy. Of course we have our sad moments, but the length of time being sad is all up to you. No one can take away your happiness, at least permanently. Focus on who you have in your life and what good has come from it. But most importantly, focus on you.
