These are my thoughts when prompted in Civics class about my thoughts on Ebola, specifically Ebola in the USA...
I think that someone else is bound to get it, but that health workers know to be careful. I’m trying not to be concerned especially because it has been pointed out that people can die from the flu but we don’t freak out about flu season. Also I don’t think it will be a huge epidemic like Africa because we are catching ebola at the start rather than letting it spread first.
Yesterday we had a school assembly for domestic violence awareness...
The assembly focused on the story of Demi Brae Cuccia who was murdered by her ex boyfriend seven years ago, the day after her 16th birthday. It was led by her father who has since partnered up with the Ladies Hospital Aid Society to spread Demi's story and awareness of domestic violence. If you want to learn more about Demi and her story go to the Demi Brae Cuccia Awareness Organization's Facebook page or the LHAS's Facebook page. Remember that if you are in an abusive relationship/ if you are abusing your partner, you need to leave the situation/ reevaluate yourself and change for the better. Demi left this boy because she sensed something was wrong with the relationship. The boy texted her non stop for the next two weeks, begging to come back, finally bargaining for a chance to go to her house and talk. Since the boy was Demi's brother's best friend, Demi thought that it would be fine to invite this boy, who had been to their house on hundreds of occasions, over to her house while she was there alone. He killed her. The period right after a breakup is when all these fatalities and tragic events occur. ALWAYS stay with friends and family and keep them updated when you are breaking up an abusive relationship, or any relationship at that.
I'm not a domestic violence expert- I didn't even realize how huge of a problem it was until yesterday! You probably don't either. Please follow these links and raise awareness for domestic violence. You might just save a life.
