Signs of our times: Mk 2 Sept 8

One of the more shameful aspects of our current circumstances has been an increase in domestic violence. Frustration, anxiety and anger is never an excuse. Apologies for the poor quality of this photo, it's an iPhone shot of an ad in my iPad digital daily newspaper.
This is really a tragedy of our times

I had a conversation with our postie as she delivered a parcel today. She has lived at the top of our cul de sac for just over a year and as we chatted she told me that she has just moved to Medowie with her teenage son to escape the violent relationship she was in. Who would have known!

Here husband is still in the house, but I gather they must be renting it. The house used to be an air force house until a couple of years ago but the air force only rent houses for a certain length of time and once the houses are over 10 years old they cease to use them.

The whole situation has put stress on everyone and just tipping some delicate relationships off the edge. It's sad that domestic violence has increased.

@onewing What a sad story Babs, we never really know what happens behind closed doors do we?

@dide Very much so. It's never OK.

@ludwigsdiana Appalling to think about domestic violence isn't it? It's never, ever OK.

@bkbinthecity Very sad.

@pamknowler It's quite appalling to think about such things isn't it? Inexcuseable under any and all circumstances. Not to mention cowardly.

@joysabin You can never know what goes on behind closed doors but there seems to be quite an effort going from various bodies to offer victims some way/s out.
