Standing by the ocean looking at the people cry, Kaley’s soul seeks peace for them. She remembers that three to five women die every day from domestic violence As a survivor, she’s asked to speak a word of comfort, but, how do you make sense of senseless acts? As she lights a candle and lays it on the water, she lets go of her fear and hopelessness. She says: Speak love to little boys and girls. Give them a sense of their value and worth. Discipline them with love and not with pain. Maybe then, it will stop.
