Darrian Amaker was left for dead when her ex-love beat her for 10 hours straight last Thanksgiving. She spent four days in the hospital with her eyes swollen shut, wondering what I assume many victims of domestic violence wonder – why?
Darrian, who is a singer and a photographer posted a video of herself singing from her hospital bed to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence facebook page that has earned the attention of many high profile publications, drawing much needed attention to the issue of domestic violence.
“Domestic violence is not a faraway issue. It affects people you know, cheerful people, people who sing, people who love. We the humans must be better, kinder, stronger. We the loving must not tolerate abuse. We the living must facilitate life.’
