October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month

We do not talk about the issue of domestic violence much, but that does not mean it does not exist or small.It is called the silent epidemic for reasons. These statistics that will make you realize why.

One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence.

One in nine men will be a victim of domestic violence.

One in three teens will be a victim of domestic violence.

According to some studies, less that 1 percent of domestic violence cases are reported to the police.

Be A Hero, Speak out! Speak to someone, like the National Domestic Violence Hotline, 1-800-799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233) or Verizon Wireless customers can quickly reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline by dialing #HOPE.

"MONSTERS" portrays the alarming impact of domestic violence on families and children, as seen through the eyes of a young girl. Studies suggest that between 3.3 million and 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence each year. The video notes that girls who witness abuse are more likely to be abused later in life, and boys are twice as likely to abuse their own partners -- "because that's the world they know." MONSTERS is produced and funded by the Verizon Foundation and supported by the National Domestic Violence Hotline

President Obama On Steve Jobs Passing.

President Barak Obama posted a message on Whitehouse blog. Just like the winter, it is setting down with the cold knowledge, how much Steve Jobs meant to the USA, how much it meant to the world.
I think the best tribute was that I read about his passing on an iPad2, that he put his beliefs and love behind.
President Obama's message, please follow the link to read the complete message on White House Blog.

"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him."
Yes, That is Steve Jobs.
