UNCC Clothesline Project

Domestic Violence Awareness

I often wonder if displays like these affect those who haven’t experienced any type of domestic violence or if they’re only meant for those of us who have.

    There is NO EXCUSE for domestic violence/abuse; however sometimes the violence and abuse is perpetuated by the perpetrator’s own rocky childhood growing up. Perhaps they were a victim themselves and/or grew up around that hostile environment. It can go a long way to reach out to the perpetrator as hard as it may be; studies have shown usually they too have deep imbedded scars that they’re acting out on.

  2. As a parent myself, I would never expect my children to reach out to me if I caused them a lifetime of hardships and abuse. I am a firm believer in self-control especially if you are a Muslim who fasts during Ramadan, prays their prayers, etc. Carry your scars by all means, don’t inflict new ones on the innocent lives that depend on you.

    I believe being a mother has added a VERY REAL dimension of realization towards the allowances you’re willing to give and not give your father…understandably so; since you know you could never and would never be towards them as your father was towards your family. I wholeheartedly agree with your “carry your scars” sentiment…I just feel that someone should never close the window to a parent’s well being both physically and emotionally. I am not Muslim; but I know the story of Abraham and of his abrasive father…however until the day his father took his last breath; Abraham never gave up on his dad because if God forgives then who are we as God’s creation to not forgive His creation. Remember; forgiveness is different from forgetting. Surely he as a parent did some good towards his family; no matter how much the good may PALE in comparison to the wrongs he caused.
