“The stories and testimonies within this publication are shared by alleged victims of domestic abuse. Victims, by default, are to be taken seriously, because of the amount of courage it takes to share their experiences — to be used only for the sole sake of inspiring others who themselves are trying to overcome and survive domestic abuse. This publication can not be held responsible for legal inconsistencies within the surviviors’ stories. Alleged abusers will never be named and their identities protected, just as victims’ identities are protected when alleged abuse initially occurs.”
