:floating: :heart: :pray: :heart: :floating:

There's a man, and there's a woman
Living right above you in apartment G
There's a lot of noise coming through the ceiling,
And it don't sound like harmony
You can sit there with your TV turned up
While the words in his anger fly
But, come tomorrow when you see her with her shades on,
Can you look her in the eye?


What if she's an angel sent here from heaven and she's making sure that you're doing you best to take the time to love one another. Brother, are you gonna pass that test? You can go on with your day-to-day...trying to forget what you saw on her face; knowing deep down, you could have been her saving grace.
What if she's an angel?

:pray: A little girl, on daddy's lap,
Hiding her disease with a baseball cap.
You can turn the channel;
Most people do.
But what if you were sitting in her daddy's shoes?:pray:

Maybe she's an angel sent here from heaven and she's making sure that you're doing your best to take the time to love one another. Brother, are you gonna pass that test. You can go on with your day-to-day...trying to forget what you saw on her face. Knowing deep down, you could have been her saving grace.

Did You Know?
 One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime.
 An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year.
 The majority (73%) of family violence victims are female. Females were 84% of spousal abuse
victims and 86% of abuse victims at the hands of a boyfriend.
 Historically, females have been most often victimized by someone they knew.
 Females who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk for intimate partner violence.

Children Who Witness
· Witnessing violence between one’s parents
or caretakers is the strongest risk factor of
transmitting violent behavior from one
generation to the next.
· Boys who witness domestic violence are
twice as likely to abuse their own partners
and children when they become adults.
· 30% to 60% of perpetrators of intimate
partner violence also abuse children in the
household.

Sexual Assualt and Stalking
» One in six women and one in 33 men
have experienced an attempted or
completed rape.
» Nearly 7.8 million women have been raped
by an intimate partner at some point in their
lives.
» 1 in 12 women and 1 in 45 men will be
stalked in their lifetime.
» 81% of women stalked by a current or
former intimate partner are also physically
assaulted by that partner; 31% are also
sexually assaulted by that partner.


Repoting Rates
* Only approximately one-quarter of
all physical assaults, one-fifth of all
rapes, and one-half of all stalkings
perpetuated against females by
intimate partners are reported to the
police.
* Domestic violence is one of the
most chronically underreported
crimes.

I'm sorry I never saw this sooner.  I sadly never use this site anymore.  If you're still looking for a way to use it now or in the future you're more than welcome to.  If you don't mind showing me the finished product, that's always nice.  Since I likely won't see the comment/note, feel free to email blacknwhite.color@yahoo.com.  No worries if you forget ;)  Permission to use whatever you see fit here ;)
