October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and serves as a reminder that each of us has the right to be free from violence and abuse. First observed in 1987 and designated an official month of awareness by Congress in 1989, DVAM focuses on three themes:
Mourning those who have died because of domestic violence
Celebrating those who have survived
Connecting those who work to end violence
You can learn more about the Domestic Violence Project here: http://www.nrcdv.org/dvam/
For those of you wondering how you too can take a stand against domestic violence, look no further than your local Verizon Wireless store. HopeLine from Verizon is offering people two easy ways to help take action:
1. Donate used wireless phones, chargers and accessories, from any carrier, at a Verizon store to help HopeLine reach its goal of collecting 1 million phone donations by the end of 2015 to support victims and survivors of domestic violence. HopeLine has the ability to turn these items into financial support for non-profit domestic violence organizations nationwide.
2. Purchase exclusive purple accessories, including a headset, phone case, tablet case and more, at Verizon store or online, and HopeLine will donate $1, to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, up to $100,000. You can grab your purple Domestic Violence Awareness items here: http://www.verizonwireless.com/search/vzwSearch?N=125&Ntt=hopeline
Let's take a stand together, even if you don't have any phones, chargers, or accessories to donate. Take this month to do something selfless and be part of the reason a domestic violence victim becomes a domestic violence survivor.
I didn't have anything to donate to HopeLine so I made a financial donation directly to the National Domestic Violence Hotline at thehotline.org
If you are a victim of domestic violence, please go to the National Domestic Violence website http://www.thehotline.org/ or call them 24/7 via (800) 795-SAFE
This time around, he waited until after his meeting with "President" Obama, went home, and promptly started bombing Syria. Why? Because the man actually gives zero fucks. This is a man who shot a whale with a crossbow. Do you really think Obama is going to talk sense into him? Putin may very well be the leader Russia needs right now, but he's also a very, very dangerous person, and if he's not kept in check, he could destabilize not only his own country, but every region (eg. Middle East) that Russia has a vested interest in. Bush isn't going to do shit about Putin though - he's too much of a candy-ass.
I'm guessing the writer of the article, doesn't know how to use Google? He claims that it is not our "constitutional right to own a gun, only to bear one"... I submit the following - the very first sentence of the Second Amendment:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but in this context, "to keep" means "to own" (keep in your home), does it not? I'm not a Constitutional scholar, but English is my first language and the Force is strong with my reading comprehension... I'm pretty sure the Constitution actually does directly protect the right to own a firearm.
I'm getting really tired of these fear mongering overreactions, every time a lone gunman does something like this. The shooting in Oregon was horrible, but it's not indicative of a gun-crazed or out of control society. The recent shootings are all unrelated, so trying to make them all for into a larger gun control or Second Amendment repeal puzzle, is just stupid.
