Getting Out Safely

The following story of domestic violence is one that demonstrates what can happen when the desire to control is taken to the extreme. It is not an unusual situation. Women around the world are murdered every day by their spouse who has gone mad in the process of wanting to control her every move. It is a very sad story, but it makes a very worthwhile and valid point, even though it is not an Australian story, but rather, is a story of a woman in America. It’s a story to remind you of the importance of getting out safely.
