October is Awareness Month

Leave a comment

October is probably best recognized as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. When I went to the market today there were pink balloon, pink reusable shopping bags, pint flowers, and even a chance to win a pink scooter. With gas prices bouncing up and down, a scooter might not be a bad alternative to a car. We see people with pink ribbons and many companies put out special packaging with pink or pink ribbons during October. It is a very worthy cause. I am totally in favor of and support efforts to end all types of cancer.

However, it is also awareness month for some other causes as well. It is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a problem in our society and world wide that persists. If we all worked together, then it could be stopped. I’m a survivor of domestic violence. We need to help each other and not ignore when we hear something or see someone abusing another person. No one deserves to be treated that way. The National Hotline is 1.800.799.SAFE (7233) 1.800.787.3224 (TTY)
Anonymous & Confidential Help 24/7
