A COMMITMENT TO SURVIVORS

[Excerpts] I have been in the field of Domestic Violence for over 14 years, and throughout my experience there have been many unfortunate reminders of why I, and many of us do the work that we do. On September 6, 2015 Deputy Cecilia Hoschet was shot and killed by her husband. He then took his own life at a fire department building several miles away. Several POV advocates attended the memorial services of Deputy Cecilia Hoschet, offering our condolences to her immediate family and her sheriff family. This beautiful service gave me insight to what an amazing woman she was, all she did for the community and how much she loved her six year old son. I sat and left there with a very heavy heart. I saw Donovan cry for his mommy; this was particularly heartbreaking... Although I never knew Cecilia personally, her tragic death is one that I will always remember. Her story motivates me to remain committed in our efforts to ending violence in our homes, families and communities. I don’t want another child to lose his/her parents the way that little Donovan lost his. I remain committed to our vision, a world without violence where no child is abused, no wife battered, no friend raped. A world without terror, without threats, without wounds from intentional actions... [Full article here]
