My school is having a "Domestic Violence" campaign right now. There are little ribbons hanging all over the trees on campus and a booth set up in the student commons area.
It's great to bring awareness about such a serious issue and I am glad it has sparked some good discussions among the students. The only problem is...
I life in constant fear of accidentally saying "Domestic Discipline" in stead of violence...because I'm so used to discipline being the next word!! It just naturally flows in my head. I think about it all the time and I hear "Discipline" much more often than I do "violence."
It's like someone saying "Go above and!"
You naturally have to finish the sentence with "Beyond!"
I know the two are very, very different things. I just have to be very, VERY conscious about what I say and speak slowly so I don't have to answer a lot of questions!!
