Judith Bardwick- the Plateauing Trap 8, 1988 ————————————– Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because, as has been said, it is the quality which guarantees all others.Winston Churchill ————————————– “Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up.This is an appalling human rights violation, yet it remains one of the invisible and under-recognized pandemics of our time.” Violence against women is an appalling human rights violation. We can put a stop to this.” — Nicole Kidman ————————————– Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime.” — Herbert Ward ————————————– That’s all nonviolence is – organized love.— Joan Baez ————————————– I would say that I’m a nonviolent soldier.When I am asked why a man/woman doesn’t leave abuser I say: They stay because the fear of leaving is greater than the fear of staying.

Each of us can play a role in ending dating violence — in our schools, our homes, our neighborhoods, and our dormitories.
