This photomanipulation is a little different to what I usually create but is one that I felt the need to create….
triumph out of adversity….
awareness…
please look at it in a positive light….

Domestic violence whether verbal, emotional or physical is wrong
It is paralyzing for the victim….it can make you feel mute and unable to ask for help, blinded into believing it’s your fault….
It’s soul destroying and damaging not only to you but those innocent ones around you too…
Nobody deserves to suffer violence of any kind especially at the hands of someone they love or who is supposed to love them….
If you are in this situation know that you are valued and precious and deserve to be treated as such….find the strength to break the silence…to be heard, to be free, to be loved as you should…
I know because I was there once a long time ago …and I found that strength and I am so happy I did….I am no longer mute or blinded … I am free and being loved and valued as a woman should be…..♥

    This is beautiful work Carol… A very strong statement that needs to be made… Nobody should be in a situation where they are held down and not valued and respected…

  • That’s right Keith….well said :)
