Family violence is a hot topic in the media right now because we were able to see it up close with our own eyes in the Rice elevator video. Those of us who hear these stories everyday are still shocked by the brutality--the inhumanity. Survivors tell me every day that the violence hurts physically, but it injures their self-respect and their dignity even more. But family violence is not new.
