Re: Moral and Ethical issue (warning topic on intimate violence)

And to continue that train of thought...I can look at my responses to violence and then choose my behavior.

One day the man who raped my daughter when she was 14 sat beside me in at 12 step meeting. I stayed and sat and watched my thoughts and felt my feelings. My making a scene there would not have helped anyone but my staying and sitting changed me.
