Masking the truth by Tam  Locke

A mask is worn by victim and abuser alike. To the outside world all will appear as it should… but no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

It is time to toss the mask aside and speak out against Domestic Violence in all its shapes and forms.

Its time to tell the ugly truth.

Shout it if you have to.

It needs to be heard.

Just a mum of 3 gorgeous boys, often found armed and dangerous with my lovely weapon of choice (Canon 1000D) and its various attachments. Photography is the ultimate hobby for an accessories addict like myself. My camera is pimped out with a multitude of filters, lenses and the like… and then there is the programs and their plugins! HEAVEN!
OH… and I have a web site thingy… Check me out at

    Powerful work. Indeed, “no one knows what goes on behind closed doors” unless we try to tell, ask for help, or shout, as you expressed. I didn’t experience this form of abuse, but surely sympathize with the huge percentage of women (mostly, but some men) and children caught in a lie. Good for you, Tam, on several levels.

  • Thanks Jan. Indeed Domestic Violence comes in all shapes and forms, and while the emotional abuse doesn’t scar the skin, the wounds it makes on the soul are far more permanent and often harder to heal. All forms are just as bad as each other… Thanks again for your comment xxx
