    Today is a very rough day. Today is One Year since my mom was taken away from us.

    For those who do not know, my mother was a victim of Domestic Violence. Her ex shot her in the back as she was dropping off his final pieces of property before subsequently taking his own life.

    Ever since that day Domestic Violence Awareness has been on the forefront of my mind. To honor my mom's memory I have decided to make today "A Day of Hope". Every hour I will be releasing a NEW piece of media that we created to teach the public about my mom and all about Domestic Violence. I have three goals with this:

    1) Spread Awareness. Help the public recognize an abusive relationship and educate how to get help. I NEED YOUR HELP WITH THIS.Please help share any information you find useful and helpful. You never know who it will reach and help.
    2) Inform. Teach the signs to looks for as well as the multiple forms of DV. Educate with stats on how big of a problem Domestic Violence is for all of us.
    3) Save a life. I really hope that this information spreads like wildfire and reaches at least 1 person who really needs it and can get them help.

    PLEASE take the time to watch the videos we have created and share any media you find helpful.

    LOVE YOU MOM!!!!

    I will be releasing the first video around 9am MST.

    What can I say, or do? I have no concept of such a thing as you went through.

    So these videos are coming? I don't know what this is about, until I see them.

    Hi Art_Deco:

    I'm just asking the public to take the time and watch the videos and PSA-styled pictures. If it touches your, or is something that you believe can help others PLEASE share it with loved ones. This campaign is primarily being done on Facebook since it is so easy to "Share" and "Like" material. I'm hoping to get as many people as possible aware of all the issues of Domestic Violence. I feel it is a topic that is often neglected and not talked about enough here in the Gay Community

    Here on RJ I will open up a new Forum Topic each hour from 9AM MST-5PM MST. Videos will be shared via Youtube and images uploaded directly to the forum.

    Thank you for the help!!
