Domestic Abuse affects millions of women worldwide.
Some women may not make it out of the relationship alive.
Many women are able to overcome and live normal, healthy lives once they have left their abuser.
Some women overcome and rise up to tell the world their story!
Brenda Thomas, is a Philadelphia author who went through a horrible domestic relationship. She tells about it in her memoir, "Laying Down my Burdens."
I have an autographed copy of this book that I purchased earlier this year. When I started reading, I couldn't put it down! If I were a book reviewer, I would give it 5 stars. But don't just take my word for it, Brenda Thomas is an Essence best-selling author!
Brenda Thomas should be recognized because not only is she writing and sharing her story, but she's also making a generous donation to benefit and and inspire other Domestic Abuse Victims.
"During the month of October, Philadelphia-based, Essence best-selling author Brenda L. Thomas will donate 500 copies of her memoir, Laying Down My Burdens, to various shelters, conferences and individuals across the country who house and support victims of Domestic violence. Organizations in the Philadelphia area will include, Congreso de Latinos Unidos, Women Against Abuse, and NCADV (National Coalition Against Domestic Violence). She has chosen to do this in an effort to provide encouragement and hope that there is a way out."
