Love

With Valentine’s Day at its heart, February is all about love.

February is also National Dating Violence Awareness Month.

Women ages 18-24 are at the greatest risk of any group for being victims of intimate partner violence.

Women In Distress is sponsoring The Love Campaign to educate young women that despite what they may have seen in their lives or in popular culture, love doesn’t hurt.

Here are a couple of other excellent resources for young women: www.loveisnotabuse.com and www.loveisrespect.org.

To me, today, love means compassion and acceptance.

If you know a young woman, please tell her what love means to you.
