NEVER AGAIN, THEY SAY!! But how many times have they said that? how many times have they come back for more?..How many times have they been abused mentally or physically, So bad ,that they can’t take it anymore. But they go back,again and again, till that final abuse, where it ends up in a tragic way.
There is help and understanding out there. But they are scared, maybe petrified especially if they have children. Scared that he will come looking for her. Therefore she would not take that chance to get out. Some are lucky enough to have a family to go home to..Others
have shelters if they can get there..The department of Justice and others have hotline numbers for shelters that women and their children can call..If you know someone like this, help them get out!!!!!Here, where I live we have..Women of the Storm which is a wonderful shelter.
Some women are very strong and get away,some of these dear women are broken..God, it makes you sick to see the hurt and the pain that they suffer from the person that they loved, who turned into a n person.They don’t even know them anymore.Lets be truthful here,a lot of it is due to drinking and drugs.
In my long life, believe me, I have seen a lot of this madness.I was in The Restaurant and lounge business, very upscale. I helped a waitress that was abused terribly, in fact just recently I this is 20 year later that one of the waitresses was beaten to death.
Susan Bergstrom commented…Powerful Miss Sherri…I worked with the Police Dept. for 5 years in the domestic violence unit…a woman will go back on the average of six times before she gets herself killed or she finally gets out!
Is this worrisom or what…PLEASE HELP THEM!!!
OR HELP YOURSELVES…we are all rooting for you!!!
Women who I knew who were very weathy and wonderful powerful politicians or business women were also involved in abuse…It doesn’t matter who you are ..famous, rich, poor or otherwise. I am sure all of us have known someone who has been a victim of abuse.

Thea-walstraasart .. commented
I worked for years for the department of Justice in the Netherlands as an assistent public prosecutor. It is very difficult to help these women. Often they took action later on to get the case dismissed. There were also cases that the (ex-) husband killed the woman finally. When I still was an Artwanted member I tried to help such a woman, but she was way too scared to help herself. She ended up broken mentally and stayed. I lost all the contact. Your artwork shows the pain and violence very well.

We must always remember how children are abused so badly mentally and physically, I can remember a child of a couple the boy..he use to pull his eye lashes out…it was when I first got married and we were renting a apartment and I could hear the boy get yelled at and getting beat..horrible let us not forget our children …they deserve better!!!!

    Such a powerful work on a terrible, difficult issue – you are so right, even if we don’t experience it directly, we all know of others who suffer – what to do? Great work and expression on this, friend :-))

  • Virgo, it is such a sad and terrible situation and as the saying goes…God helps those who help themselves…but so often under these conditions is could be almost impossible.. so we have to be there to help …if we can…sometimes very silently..thank you Virgo…
