Domestic Violence: You or someone you know hurting?

By posting this video, “Leslie Morgan Steiner: Why domestic violence victims don't leave” the probability that this hits home for at least one of you is 100%. That makes it worth posting to everyone, asking you to watch, and if it makes just one of you reach out for yourself or to a friend you suspect is being abused it will be a message well posted http://youtu.be/V1yW5IsnSjo.

Description: Leslie Morgan Steiner was in “crazy love” -- that is, madly in love with a man who routinely abused her and threatened her life. Steiner tells the dark story of her relationship, correcting misconceptions many people hold about victims of domestic violence, and explaining how we can all help break the silence.

We have updated the PSP.com website with a list of resources if you’re in an abusive situation:  http://bit.ly/1dPu715  It includes domestic violence help resources, legal help, financial help, important links as well as words of wisdom from PSP members.

Be safe and take care of yourself.
