The month of October carries the highlighted awareness of one of society’s most prevalent issues-domestic violence. While reports express that the majority of victims to domestic violence are women and children, we must not lose sight of the fact that everyone, including men, can also be victims of domestic violence. Therefore, while we bring the matter of domestic violence to the forefront this month, we must do so with a frame of mind to help all victims of domestic violence, to educate everyone on matters relate to domestic violence, and hope that such knowledge will be used as tools by everyone to prevent further occurrences of domestic violence.
