    To start Today's campaign I want to first start off with a Memorial Video that I created for my mom. My sister and I both made our own video using songs that touched us both.

    The lyrics to this song choke me up every time.

    My mom was the last person in the world I EVER thought would fall victim to Domestic Violence. She was highly educated, just obtained her Master's degree in Criminal Justice and knew about the dynamics of Domestic Violence. Unfortunately emotions got involved and in her attempted to protect My sister and I from danger, she put herself in danger. Please don't ever misjudge what people are capable of and if you believe even for a second that your life, or the life of a loved one, is in danger make sure you take all precautions to keep alive and safe! I will be going over tips and advice later today on steps you can take



    For those who are wondering what this Day of Hope is about, see my original Forum post at http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2376889

    Your mom was a brave woman. It is an issue that is culturally sensitive I think and gets ignored a lot.

    But you refuse to acknowledge male victims. That is not right either. That also discriminates the male victim's children.
