GRANDMA SAID DON'T EVER DO IT

Question Of The Week 09-17-18

Have you ever or would you ever give sanctuary or assistance to a victim 
of domestic violence?

  1. We had a terrible incident of domestic violence is our family history when several family members were killed for giving refuge to a sister. My grandma told us never to take sides in a domestic violence dispute.

  2. That is so sad and would be a hard decision to make. I think that maybe today there are agencies you could contact to get involved and hopefully help.

  3. Assistance yes, sanctuary no. I don't want to place my family members in a position of danger.

  4. Yes, and I have.

  5. I've never been in that position.

  6. Growing up we often had victims of domestic violence living with us. Sometimes for weeks. And yes, I would follow the path I was taught if needed.
    I am so very sorry to read of your family history.

  7. When I was younger, yes I did and I was terrified the whole time. I helped them move out of state.

  8. Yes and yes. Bullies are so often cowards.

  9. Crumbs that's a terrible story.

    Thankfully it hasn't happened in our family. I suppose it would depend on a number of things but yes I would. How could you refuse. However I would make sure they could find sanctuary in a place they wouldn't be found.

  12. Tough question. I don't have any resources to help them hide as messymimi does and fi it was a complete stranger I would probably say no. In case the perpetrator of said violence follows and drags me and mine into the same danger. There are possibly situations where I might help...

  13. If I was able and had the facilities to do so, I definitely would. Unfortunately, I am unable to do so...I have neither the means or suitable property/abode to be able to do so.

    As a child I witnessed domestic violence up close and personal; something no child should ever have to witness; something no one adult or child should have to deal with.

    Our stepfather was a true bastard of the lowest kind. The police ran him out of town, telling him never to return. The police back in the early Fifties had that power. Sadly, they no longer have the power to do so.

  14. I would like to think I would on my altruistic side. But then my coward side might weigh in too.

  15. Yes I did, I can't go I to details here though.

  16. I have done it, back years ago when my neighbor friend n 2 kids had major problems dealing with a live in boyfriend who was out of control. We got him arrested n a restraining order. It took awhile, but she finally moved out of town n got far away from him.

    Some people want to own you plus control every move you make. Plus, he was a large guy. I haven't been in touch with her for years!

  17. That was my comment above, don't know why it didn't say SnaggleTooth

  18. I have given both sanctuary and assistance, but have never been asked in a case of domestic violence. It would give me pause at my age to put my family in danger. However, I would help financially if necessary.

  19. Like Olga, I certainly like to think I would. I would try to help as much as I can.

  20. I feel the same as Changes in the wind.
