What If...

Insert "What if" at the beginning of each of these statements. 

...I would've realized when they degraded me when we were dating, that it wouldn't stop after we were married? 

...I had stopped them in their tracks, when they stepped up to hit me, that first time?

...I had called them on it, when I knew they lied about where they were, that night?

...I had spoken up, and told my family the truth, when they first started asking questions? 

...I had explained to my employer about them, earlier - would I still have that job I loved?

...I had moved out of the way quicker - would I have had a live delivery?

...I had left sooner, would I still have my beloved dog, "Rusty"?

...I had moved faster, would my son/daughter not be in the hospital with broken ribs?

...I could make a difference in someone else's life, by honestly sharing MY story?

Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE #EtSoV
