Why I took the Pledge
While my life has never been touched recently by domestic violence, I have seen this in my own family. I have a grandmother that lived with violence in both of her marriages and though I never saw it happen personally, it changed her as I know it does for all women who this effects.
I chose to take the pledge as a man and as a father to stand up for women all-over that have been impacted by violence to support them and to encourage them to take a stand and to do what they need to do to break the cycle of violence and stand on their own.
At the same time I feel that I need to take a stand to not let others be disrespected and humiliated by violence or words, and I want to let other women know that I am there to support them if and when they are ready to take the stand that they need to take as well.
I highly encourage all to take the pledge and take a stand like I am today!
