It is so important to care for people the right way. And in order to do that, we have to step up and speak out.
By this, I am talking about violence. How many times has someone been a victim or a witness to a violent act, but never told anyone? Yes, fear can often be the reason why we don’t do anything. But this is not the way to take care of it. Overcoming our fear of speaking up is important.
Now, I can understand that there is a fear that the person we are speaking against will take action if we do, be this an abusive husband or a murderer, or any other kind of violent person. However, there are many cases where this is not an issue and we can do something about it.
What can we do? Of course, it depends on what happened, how and where, but the most likely thing to do is call the police. They can help with quite a lot of issues that are happening. There are times when they can’t do anything, but often they can actually catch the person in question and let him or her have what he or she deserves.
Then, you can always contact a family member or friend of the victim. This can be a great help because it is hard to talk about this sort of problem. So doing it for the victim can be a great relief.
I hope that this will help some people speak up against violence.
