Microcosm of society

Unfortunately, domestic violence and violence in the NFL is a reflection of society at large. I’m a huge football fan. It’s been a rough couple of weeks in the NFL with the explosion of the Ray Rice video, the news of Adrian Peterson, and now the Greg Hardy situation.

Domestic violence is a crisis in our country. There are people and organizations out there trying to make a difference and make a change, but domestic violence is still seen as acceptable to too many people. Not only do the abusers think it is acceptable, but the victims well.

Things needs to change.

Maybe now, with the press that these stories are getting, things will change. Maybe now, with sponsors for the NFL speaking out against domestic violence, things will change.

Maybe now victims will speak up for themselves, and things will change.
