Silence the Abused and Cover Up the Crime

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Silence. 
Forgiveness. 
Grace.

This is what we learn: 
Be meek, be kind, be silent. 
Accept abuse. 
Accept pain. 
Stay silent.

But silence, 
forgiveness, 
grace 
cannot always save us

When silence covers up abuse, 
forgiveness prolongs pain, 
and grace enables an abuser, 
we must change what we have learned.

No more silence. 
No more 
tolerating abuse 
for empty values.

No more silence.
