Barbara Bentley (author of "Dance with the Devil") has inspired me to take action in public. I am a victim of domestic violence. My children are also victim's of domestic violence. The perpetrator is my ex.
At this point I am still petrified to say anything in public using my real name. I am afraid if anyone knows and confronts him, my children will pay the price. When he has been called to task by the Court, daycare providers, arbitrators, or anyone else regarding any topics remotely or directly associted with me, my children have had to endure his wrath.
I can't write more at this point. Too afraid of unintended consequences.
