One thought on “Returning Injury-Review

  1. This should be an exceptional read. Becky’s compassion toward abused women is commendable. It is more than a American problem, it is a world wide sickness and there should be no tolerance for it. Thank you for allowing me to comment on such a brutish practice. It should also be considered that there is abusiveness shown to males. It isn’t just limited to women. It’s women, men and children. Perhaps Becky is an angel of mercy.
