Why Domestic Violence Victims Don’t Leave

~At 22, Leslie Morgan Steiner seemed to have it all: good looks, a Harvard diploma, a glamorous job in New York City. Plus a handsome, funny boyfriend who adored her. But behind her façade of success, this golden girl hid a dark secret. She’d made a mistake shared by millions: she fell in love with the wrong person.—Leslie Morgan Steiner, Crazy Love

I contacted the author of Crazy Love, Ted Talk virtuoso, and businesswoman, Leslie Steiner Morgan, asking her this question: “If you had one thing to say to women about domestic violence, what would you say?”

Leslie Morgan Steiner answered: “The one thing I want to say is that we all deserve to be loved the way we love others – with a generous heart. True love only comes when we put ourselves first.”


I’ve watched and listened to her Ted Talk several times while walking and on the treadmill. I asked her if I could place her video on my blog for you, the readers, to watch, too.

If you are being abused in any way whatsoever, I pray you will Rise Up, Speak Out, Scream, Tell, Tell, Tell, and NEVER stay silent of domestic abuse.


….because silence KILLS.


~~~~~~Thank you, Leslie, for your unrelenting work to end violence against women. You, and women who give VOICE, are rising to change the world.
