I saw a very lovely sister that i have always admired.After a warm hug i asked about her children and husband.She said "oh i am divorced". Didnt i know? No i didn't but i noticed in the past one year or so she has been glowing and "fining" anyhow. I didnt know what it was but i always made it a duty to let her know she was looking gorgeous.She radiated so much peace and inner beauty.So today i knew why she had been shinning.Apparently all these many years i knew her she had been suffering terrible physical, verbal and emotional abuse not only from her husband but from his mum, siblings and even his nephew."

Yeeeee!!My body shook.My light was shining through my ears, my mouth and my eyes in multiples of lightning!!!! Still this woman stayed in the marriage. She continued to endure such gross humiliation and dehumanization from her husband and in laws.
One day her neighbours called RRS who took her out of the house because her husband was beating her again and they feared for her life.That was when her eyes opened.She had to be taken away before she realised she was clutching at straws."
