Why I Rise - Part 33

"I experienced violence from my mom until I was 21. I saw my step-dad and my mom fighting, where she will end up in the hospital. I intervened every single time to separate them. I took the baby many times, my half-brother from those scenes, so he wouldn't experience seeing domestic violence. Because of my own experiences, I rise with a One Billion Rising because I am a peacemaker and there is something more powerful than a fits, a kiss, a hug a good friend.."
