Day 10: A Story of Courage
“I had started to try and keep my distance from him. One day, his (family member) called and said…it was safe to come because he wasn't around. He was. A fight began... I fled to my car to protect myself from him, and he came at the car window... If it wasn't for a bystander who noticed and threatened to call the police, I think he would have killed me. In that moment I realized that if I were to stay in that relationship, I wouldn't make it alive. So as soon as it was safe, I ran as far as I could, called the police, pressed charges. He knew it was over then because I had broken the golden rule of ‘snitching’ to the police.” ~ Domestic violence survivor
