  2. #DomesticViolence I remember the day I met my son's father multi-racial: (German, Filipino, Irish, Cherokee Indian) Me: Dominican and Black. He promised my family he would take care of me. I was pregnant he told me he wanted to be in his sons life we were never married. He took me back to #BaltimoreMaryland – North Carey Street and Franklin? Saratoga about one block from Harlem Ave. The first couple of months were okay then everything became violent 7 months pregnant he cracked one rib bruised another, cracked one jaw and bruised another. I saw my mother go through abuse and I vowed not to follow her lead this guy was tall, handsome, educated, funny, knew chivalry in every sense of the word. Once my son was born things got worse. My brothers found out about it and shot my son's father. (he survived) the bullet went in and went out… my brothers did time for the crime I was floored why should they pay for my situation. I left him and eventually I went back to college: Morgan State University (HBCU) crossed over as Alpha Kappa Alpha – Alpha Delta Chapter Bachelors in Business Administration, Bachelors in Television and Radio Broadcasting, May 2018 I received my Doctoral in Health and Human Services. I now travel in a rental car letting other women now their self-worth. I have travel to 23 cities and small towns to share, witness and minister to other women and young ladies. We must stand in the gap for one another not just talk about women in these situation You will not know what it is unless you have been in the situation it does not start off as Domestic Violence it feels like a whirlwind
