Domestic-violence cases in our state alone reached more than 5,350 reported cases.

That’s about 15 calls a day by families in desperate need of help, many with young children in dangerous situations. As a result, a staggering number of innocent children pay the biggest price.

Intervention for these families, especially the children, should at least be available by the state and offered to every man, woman and child involved in family violence.

Obvious help is needed for all involved.

I’m sure violence wasn’t part of anyone’s plan for their lives. Everyone deserves the opportunity to have a better life without violence, a life that a lot of families take for granted.

Our state needs to step up and offer the needed help to every struggling family that is part of this out-of-control family violence issue in our state.
