  1. Watching this after the earthquake and I can’t imagine how the people of Puerto Rico are feeling. The region hasn’t fully recovered from the hurricane and now they have this. I wish them all the best and give these counselors so much appreciation for all that they do.

  2. A lot of women who have felt suicidal have felt that way because of their intimate spouses hurting them and beating them up. A lot of women have not "moved away", because their victimizers have taken everything from them. A lot of people do not do anything as bystanders to help women anymore when they should. They are not directly responsible, but I feel that they can use their high salary figures to "victimize" victims. When people are "reliving their past", it is PTSD.

  3. Wow I commend these Hero's, definitely highly stressful job. Handling so many life & death situation per shift. Amazing people who make a real difference.
