“Honey, I’m not going to let any man put his hands on me,” the first woman declared.
“I don’t know why a woman won’t just leave a man like that,” the second woman said.
“I guess some women like getting hit upside their head,” the first woman said, shaking her head from side to side.
The second woman agreed. “Evidently, they do,” she said, nodding her head up and down.
A third woman sat in silence, listening to the other two women. She declined to join the conversation because she knew the other two could not comprehend what it was like to be a victim of domestic violence because they had never experienced it. They would only understand when they were faced with an unrelenting force of evil that was determined to make their lives a living hell, and determined to not let them get away. She knew first-hand that it is never as easy as just leaving.
