We can continue to waste time and argue who dropped the ball when it comes to the Ray Rice situation — or we can use it as a stepping stone to bring to light the true problem of domestic abuse that is going on across our nation.
Domestic abuse is an issue that needs to be spotlighted not because of ray rice- but because it happens in every community and to every demographic. It’s not just physical- it’s verbal abuse, living in fear everyday or being restricted financially by someone else.
If you or someone you know needs immediate help or help obtaining the resources to leave- please call 1-800-500-1119.
Instead of giving ray rice any more attention, it’s time to focus on how to educate and empower those in need.
