  1. Was a victim of domestic violence and wrote a poetry book for domestic violence. Also am going to write songs as well. Please contact me.

  2. Thank you for putting this list together. I have added a link to your page from my blog. I hope you don’t mind. I was trying to find global resources and most sites that were coming up were US only. Thanks again.
