A Blog About Our Society and the People, Places and Things that Spark Our Lives

 

Welcome to the inaugural of Socially Sparked, a monthly blog about our society and the people, places and things that Spark our lives by making a huge impact for the good of others.  My focus today is on the 113th United States Congress’ passing of the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.  I’ve got to hand it to democrats and republicans alike for while, not truly a bi-partisan work – I’ll take it — as it’s the closest our government has come during President Obama’s presidency to working together for the greater good.  As you probably know, it’s not an easy feat ever, but the track record of late proves what an accomplishment the passing of this reauthorization of the Act truly is.  Which, isn’t saying much.

To be clear, protecting our nation’s women against violence is not something you should need to discuss or argue over.  It should be an immediate ‘automatic’.  Furthermore, domestic, verbal, physical and sexual violence unfortunately knows no boundaries.  It crosses all lines of race, color, breed, religion and sex. There should be no need to discuss or argue who or which of the aforementioned categories this Act should protect, nor to what extent these certain categories should be protected.  Again, it’s an automatic!

Hopefully, the victims of this violence will gain courage to actually seek assistance knowing that their government united together in support of assisting them through their horrific ordeals.

Bravo to the House for passing reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.  In my viewpoint, their act is Socially Sparked.  Next time, don’t waste time or lives — it should be automatic!
