A Cry for Help - Tracy Thurman Story

Posted by Hannah at 11:05 PM

Tracy Thurman's Story of domestic violence and abuse at the hands of her husband. The fact that law enforcement basically ignored her pleads until he almost killed her. She ended up suing, and won her case! One of the many stories that changed the lifes of domestic abuse victims, and those that are dealing martial abuse in their lifes.

I remember seeing this film a while ago. What is chilling is how short a time ago the world took domestic violence within families seriously. Ahem. I guess I could say was FORCED to take it seriously.

This happened in the 1980's, and that wasn't so long ago. We have come far from that time, but look at the toll. SURE Tracy Thurman in this film may have NOT been a faith follower, but to be perfectly honest I don't think it would have mattered. I have often wondered how long it will be until the church is placed in this situation before they take the issue a bit more seriously. Everyone knows its wrong, but how they deal with wrong as well. I would bet in the future if the church goes thru what this town did (after they got sued) things might be different for those that come to them for help. Everyone - unless they are completely blind - knows that this issue is serious. Emotional and verbal abuse is not taken as seriously, and yet it is shown that it could be taken into this realm very quickly. Sick people with a need for control - you just never know how far they will take it. If the church can't wake in the real sense in what they feel is the 'real' abuse victims what will do they for the rest of us?
