One is Too Many

I’m sickened as a man when I hear figures like this. I don’t even remember where I heard it, but it was recently, so I did a little digging to verify…

In recent years, about one-third of female homicide victims were killed bay an intimate partner. TN Women’s Health Report Card

The aforementioned report card reports the rate of women’s death by homicide at 3.2 per 100,000.

One is too many women to die at the hands of a man.
One is too many men to harm or kill a woman who should be able to trust him.
One is too many children to have lost a mother and a father in the tragedy of domestic violence and murder.

I don’t really know what to do, other than pray. Raise two boys to become fine men. Try to recognize and act on tragedy before it happens. And make it known that one is too many.
