Review for Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence Inc., Colorado Springs, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was nearly killed in a violent attack by my husband in 2006. I continue to suffer physically. I went through life thinking I had recovered but after coming out with my own story about three years ago I ran across a post for a retreat in California. It was over my daughters 18th birthday but something told me I still needed to go. With full support of my kids, I boarded a flight to San Diego to attend a Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence retreat that would change my life forever. I have been an active advocate for BTS ever since. I regained my confidence and discovered through them who I was meant to be. I have returned to college, accepted a job as a reporter for an online news publication and work as much as possible to bring awareness to this state. I teach classes to educate the high school and college students as well as ban together women locally to find strength in each other support one another as much as needed. It is a bit difficult to juggle it all, but I know that BTS and it's founder is behind me, holding me up, and encouraging me to continue to strive for all my goals and dreams. Without BTS I would never be where I am today.
