Recently there has been an assembly on domestic violence and they showed the blood-curdling, bone-chattering, horrific recording of little Lisa--6-years old in 1991-- calling 911 while her step"daddy" was beating her mother. Apparantly this has been a constant struggle.

I was able to find this again on youtube.

This wasn't the first or the last 911 call. Please, please listen:…

Now please do not worry, she did not die. I was stuck with that horrifying thought for another hour before I could ask what happened to her because it was all in a mess of videos during the presentation. I found this on youtube.

Lisa, obviously, had a horrible childhood. It took years before her stepdad got arrested, I guess because lack of proof. He was beating them long before this call. And long after, before he was finally arrested for DRUG possession. It is just awful. But this is the real thing, and it had a heavy effect on me.

The presenter is good friends with Lisa, and she is 23 now with two kids and very happy.

But this video made me want to scream.

The next best part of the assembly was when the screen held an oath, and he asked the men who are willing to stop the violence to stand and pledge the oath. Only few stood up at first, then a couple more, and a few more, then all of a sudden, all the guys of our school of over a thousand stood up and took the pledge. It was amazing when I was expected so much less of them.

Love you, Lisa, and end violence against women and men.

What about her mom, little sister and baby sibling? I'm not wanting to assume her mother was killed, but I came across the video and heard her scream: MOMMY!!"

Maybe because she heard her mom scream or something. Anyhow, I'm glad they all(except the father. hope he's dead)lived through it.
