Why the post about LifeWire?

On May 14th my wife and I attended LifeWire’s World of Hope Gala and Auction, where we learned about their tremendously effective programs helping victims of domestic violence, and the great need for them. The dedication of the staff & volunteers, as well as the outpouring of support from the local community touched and impressed us.

About Domestic Violence

Victims of domestic violence are predominantly, but not exclusively women and children. It transcends race, income, culture, and sexual orientation. It can even affect pets. The abuse may take many forms, from physical to psychological. It often impedes the victim’s ability to perform outside of the home, such as at work or school. There are many common myths about domestic violence, and people often wonder or ask why the victim stays.
