  1. This absolutely breaks my heart. As a survivor of domestic violence, an advocate, and a speaker for high schools and colleges, this is what I work to prevent every single day. I am constantly reminded of how important it is that we speak about warning signs and identifying risks. I am so committed to doing even more. This poor girl. My heart goes out to her, and all who have been affected by this.
