Why would a spouse do this to a family? Why rip the love to shreds?
Sorry to say, this is a true story. A recollection of how a spouse, a brother, a church and the legal system created a sad tale -- a tale of how to fail the children.
Since it's about a wife beating her husband, it may be hard to believe. It may be even harder to believe this wife is a mother who beats her son. I'd never received an adequate understanding of discrimination until this sexual discrimination reigned down on me. There is no hope for a husband. There is no hope for a father. My only hope is -- by telling how my son, daughter, and I were abused... well, perhaps... others might not be abused.
Sure, the emotional pain of watching your children being abused is brutal. The sexual abuse (and guilt associated with it) is no fun, either. But, if asked about the physical abuse of domestic violence, the most painful experience that comes to mind is probably not what one would expect.
Yes, the fists hurt. The blow from the wedding ring to the shin left the right leg with a chronic injury. Getting kicked by boots also left a lasting impression. On the other hand, fingernails drawing blood was not only painful at the time, but often resulted in infection. However, the attack that hurt the most was getting money thrown in my face. Part of this included, a brand new $100 bill being used to put a papercut on my eyeball. My eye watered for days and days. I never regained the same level of vision.
Please help stop domestic violence. Thank you.
Preacherman, don't tell me,
Heaven is under the earth.
I know you don't know,
What life is really worth.
It's not all that glitters is gold;
'Alf the story has never been told:
So now you see the light, eh!
Stand up for your rights. Come on!
Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!
Get up, stand up: don't give up the fight!
