    It was an honor to have Directed this gripping story that is so very necessary. I applaud Ms. Rhambo for having the courage and fortitude to write a story that brings awareness to domestic violence and spark conversation on how to end domestic violence where ever it is going on. Additionally, this film will help others see just how close they can be to a domestic violence situation and encourage them to reach out to help a loved one to have the courage to stand up to their attacker so that he or she will not feel free to be abusive. Abuse in any form is wrong and should not be tolerated. Far too often the abused feels the need to be silent due to the embarrassment and shame that comes from abuse but silence is the worst remedy to domestic abuse.
