THIS PAGE IS ABOUT THE FACTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. STORIES AND PICTURES. MANY ARTICLES TOO. SO STOP IN AND VISIT MY PAGE AND JOIN THE FIGHT.

I MADE THIS PAGE SO PEOPLE COULD SEE THAT THERE ARE ALOT OF THINGS WE NEED TO CHANGE IN THIS WORLD AND I THINK WE CAN. HERE IS JUST ONE OF MANY STORIES I WANT YOU TO SEE, IT IS MY STORY AND I AM SORRY IT HAPPENED BUT IF JUST ONE PERSON CAN GET HELP FROM IT--THEN I THANK GOD--MAYBE THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO YOU.

It has been since 1998 that I first felt the need to have a webpage and inform the public on what I knew at the time to be a plague on this great nation of ours. With recent events that happen on 911, it has made me even more aware about the violence that needs to be put front stage not only in our thoughts but in our actions. What can we do to help, just start by not always turning a deaf ear, or maybe turning the other way when a person is being mistreated in public. Maybe you live in an apartment complex and you have seen and heard fights that you would normally say well, I wish they would quit that fighting. Next time you hear something like that pick up the phone and call the police, you dont have to give your name and in todays day and time you could even not be there, but say in the mall and call. You know cell phones are agreat thing to call with. I dont know if you knew this or not, but if you have an old cell phone did you know you could give it to the local Domestic Violence Group in your town and they can give fix it and give it to an at-risk woman so if she were put in danger again, she could call 911, because lets face it, the one thing an abuser needs to feel in control is to think the person he is abusing has no way of calling out for help. If you would take the time and look around the place you live, I am just about for certain there is some little way you could help your fellow man or woman. I know getting involved is a hard thing to do, because when we were children our family would tell us to mind our own buisness. I say NO!! If you and I dont get involved then who? Just take the time today, just today and think about one little thing you can do to make a difference in a abused perosons life, can you sew? How about crochet? I know the local shelters need stuffed animals for the children that has been brought in to them with no home and they dont know what is going to happen next. You could donate cloths, and that is an easy thing to do. I bet right now you have things in your closet that you have not worn in a year. These are all good things to do and just a small thing I would love for you to think about today. Let me know how you do and write me a letter and tell me how it went. To contact me and see what is new for my many readers, yep I AM BACK .... and look out. rockinmomma1966@aol.com I need to hear from you all I enjoy reading the letters so keep them coming and I always write back to every one who wants me too.

The thing i am most proud of are my sons..ZACHARY..AND JESSE..they have helped me through a time..no child should have to see thier mother in.

I am also proud of my work with the violence of any kind... in this mad world we live in we seldom take the time out to see what the people around us are feeling...take a few short moments out to see some of the brave people I am here to tell you about...the page is in construction so mind the pot holes...thanxs..Please enjoy the images you will find i have had alot of help, so when i put a page up for you to view take a look, they help me so much, here is a picture to start us off of things to look at, i love angels because i think they look over people who are abused...

UPDATEÖÖ

So what is new? Well a new home for starters, I had a habitat home built for me and it is great. College, new life, new boyfriend, now what is new with you all, let me know and if you are having problems with a domestic violence issue please write me I will do what I can to help.


I am really excited about getting to tell people my story...I am a mother of two boys..When I was 39 I left a good marraige because I thought the world was passing me by...and like most people I left for a man...Little did I know he had a drinking problem... I later found this out so I joined in thinking I could handle it...when laughter turned to pain a messed up face a broken ankle and .....then he shot me.. I am now in a wheelchair.

†††††††† † † Your probably saying I hope he went to jail, well no...he killed himself right after he shot me...I have no one to yell at, and no one person I can tell this to. So here I am trying to tell my story to help other people.


Here is a story and it was gave to me by a personal friend of mine named " Erika " and it is called " The Fork ", it is a fun sort of story and I wanted to put it on this page. I think you will like it.


Here are some statistics that I found in a book written by "Stephanie Rodrighez", a women who overcame domestic violence, homelessness, poverty, and then she escaped. If you have a chance, read the book.


This problem, as I see it is the most senseless of crimes..and as a mother of two boys myself we need to teach our children that there is NEVER a reason to put your hands on any human let alone kill them.

Here is some other information I found on statistics on domestic violence. The thing that makes me the madist is that there are half as many womens shelters in there US as there are Animal Shelters. That says alot about the world we live in.


I AM THINKING OF PUTTING AN ENTIRE AREA FOR JUST CHILDREN OF ABUSE VICTIMS. I AM REALLY WANTING SOME INPUT BY PEOPLE WHO SEE THIS PAGE ON YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN AND HOW THEY ARE DOING AND IF YOU KNOW OF ANY WEBSITES THAT MAY HAVE INFORMATION WE CAN PUT ON THIS PAGE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO WRITE ME AT DomesticViolence-mail.com. THANK YOU.

I would love to tell you about my sons, Zachary and Jesse. Zac is 12 and Jesse is 10, lately they have been at each others throats, almost to the point of hitting each other. I donít know how to deal with it and I am looking for any articles that will help me with this. I know making this page makes one think they would know what to do. But I donít, and I am looking for answers on what to say to the oldest one to make him see that hitting his little brother is not the way to handle being mad at his little brother. They donít live with me and I hate to just yell at them about it, I feel like I am preaching at them each time they come over here. So if you know of any books or webpages I could read please let me know. Well that is were I stand at this place and time. Thanks for listening to me. Macey Zink

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is increasingly recognized as a major public health problem that particularly affects women90% to 95% of domestic violence victims are women.

1 More recently, domestic violence, and more specifically, the abuse of women has been recognized as a pediatric issue.

2 The battering of women is intricately connected to child health. Child abuse occurs disproportionately in homes where domestic violence exists.

3 Moreover, witnessing the battering of their mothers may result in significant psychosocial and developmental sequelae for children.

4 This affects a significant proportion of the children in this country, as children who witness family violence far outnumber those who are direct victims of abuse (between 3.3 to 10 million children witness parental violence annually).

3 Although most children who witness the battering of their mothers do not become victims or perpetrators of violence as adults, research suggests that up to 75% of men in batterer treatment programs report witnessing the abuse of their mothers or being physically abused themselves as children.

5 Other evidence suggests that girls who have been abused or who have witnessed the abuse of their mothers may be more likely to become victims of domestic violence as adults.

6 Abused and neglected children are at greater risk for delinquent and criminal behavior.

7 Thus, the abuse of women is a pediatric issue and pediatricians are in a unique position to respond. Response to battered women in the pediatric setting poses a particular challenge as interventions need to assess safety of both the mother and her children.

These are the problems that we face in the world we live in today. When the politicians say we can not do anything about the problem or that we are a "social" problem maybe they should see the health problems that this is causeing our families and then think what a problem that is..that is just my two cents worth.

This is a page I had sent to me by a friend and I liked it so much I wanted to put it on my page, please take the time to look it over, there are many links to good information on it.

RAPE

It has come to my attention that there is a part of domestic violence that I may have over looked. The part I am speaking of is RAPE. I know that is a part of life that none of us want to think about, never the less talk about but it is a part a big part of domestic violence. So I am now adding articles I find on the web to help those of us survivors so that we have some were to look for information. Please let me know if you have a great spot for me to look at for information. Thank you all for your input on my webpage and donít hesitate to let me know if I have forgotten some of you. I will try and get it all on my page as soon as I can. There is some new information I found out about yesterday, the facts and the information to help us to find out the sexual preditors that are out there, some in the very comunities we live in, here is a law I found out about it is called Meagans law, the US government wants to make a list of the people who are convicted of a felony crime, both men and women and put them on the list, take a look at the law so you can be better informed about the things you need to know about the sexual preditors.

Thank you

Macey
