The hot-button issue all over the news and social media right now surrounds the domestic violence case of NFL running back, Ray Rice. And while this may be the “cause of the day” due to the celebrity nature of this particular case, unfortunately, this “invisible” problem is as old as time!

It could be happening to someone who sits next to you at work, it could be happening to a close friend, it could be happening to a child in your neighborhood, and unless you specifically know what to look for it’s invisible to most people.
