This day in his life sees him waiting outside of the local preschool for the father of a child who’s been bullying his daughter. Adamant that he just wants to talk, those close to him aren’t exactly giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    Attending this show on Sunday the 23rd. As a advocate for Domestic Violence I am so pleased that Derek chose this topic. Domestic Violence in my opinion is one topic that many other’s don’t understand. Don’t understand the abuser and don’t understand the victim. And, unfortunately the blame is still with the victim….I can’t wait to attend this show to see how violence is portrayed and knowing this topic needs to be brought out in the communities more so those that don’t understand …can see that POWER and CONTROL is the main reason for the abuser to do what they do the best and know very well what their first step is to where their last step is…Thank you….
